Mobility 2.0: Managing the System of Systems

Roadways, sidewalks, intersections, public transit, TNCs; the mobility landscape is getting ever more complex. This is complicated further as the transport industry pushes forward with autonomy.

  • Explore the role of government, tech providers, automakers and operators in managing the mobility system of systems to create a ‘one stop’ mobility solution.
  • Discover how one of the leading mobility providers works with cities as a trusted private partner to launch new services (i.e. bikeshare) to enhance low emission urban mobility
  • Get to grips with how multi-modal mobility (e-hailing, public transit, bikes etc.) will enhance urban transportation by offering convenience and choice, bringing value to residents and cities alike

Shared Mobility & Microtransit: Blurring the Lines of Public & Private Transportation

Urban mobility is in dire need of revamp. With the tech. innovation outstripping implementation, discover how blurring public and private transit can enable rapid service activation at low costs.

  • Get to grips with how a zero emission microtransit mobility model is augmenting urban transportation by complementing traditional public transit and private transportation
  • Delve into the complexities of P3s to understand how the private and public sectors with the help of a third launched an effective mobility service with no capital investment
  • Everyone is a winner -Discuss added monetization opportunities outside of the traditional service (i.e. advertising) and how P3 models can boost city revenue whilst improving the life of citizens at no extra cost to the tax payers
