Mobility

The way we move through our cities has changed - it’s not just the introduction of electric or driverless vehicles. The entire mobility ecosystem from how we pay for travel, the technology that enables it, and our service expectations have been affected.

Rapid advances in digital technology are transforming the economic and mobility landscapes. Mobile technology is creating new opportunities and challenges for the transport sector – from commuters to transit operators to government agencies and a wide range of industries.

Mobility tech offers many opportunities for cities, from making transit systems more efficient and competitive to expanding the transport options offered to get populations around affordably and reliably.

Now more than ever mobile devices are enabling cities to reap the benefit of vast behavioural data, supporting the development of applications and information systems that improve the decision digitally connected citizens make when interacting with cities. In addition, recent methodological breakthroughs in data analytics enable policymakers to better design transit systems for the future while protecting users' information.

In 2021, the mobility industry is worth over two trillion dollars and the adoption of Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), micro-mobility, and ridesharing apps continue to reshape the sector. This means that governments, city planners and business leaders across a wide range of industries need to start asking tough questions.

 

If fewer people drive, what happens to the oil companies that make petrol or billboard companies that rely on people driving along roads to view their ads? If fewer people use private vehicles, what happens to the public infrastructure that is funded by revenues from vehicle registrations, tolls, parking tickets, and speeding tickets? If there are fewer car accidents, how will that affect providers of health and vehicle insurance and even mechanics?

While not immediately apparent, a rapidly changing mobility sector has far-reaching effects on the wider economy and affect us all. However, while these changes are inevitable, they certainly won't take effect all at once. As cars become increasingly autonomous, and cities begin to embrace emerging technologies, existing transit operators and various organisations should begin considering the future landscape to figure out where their business is heading and how they can stay ahead of the pace of change. 

What does the future of mobility look like?

Autonamous Vehicles

Private vehicle ownership is not predicted to completely disappear in the future. In fact, with automakers shifting to self-driving technologies, private vehicle ownership may prevail. Autonamous vehicles offer improved safety features and other benefits as well as accelerating the transition to a fully electric future. Much like today's mobile phones, autonomous vehicles may also support a wide range of interactive applications and entertainment options which could result in increased investment by customers as a new era of customisation rises.

Carsharing

Apps like Uber, Grab, and Ola have changed the way customers expect their transport experience. Commuters value the convenience of point-to-point transportation, saving them the trouble of navigating traffic, figuring out public transport timetables, and finding parking spaces. Ridesharing also helps serve the segment of the population that doesn't have access to private vehicles, such as seniors, low-income families, and minors without licenses. Therefore, ridesharing has become the preferred way to travel for many as it provides a more economical, convenient, and sustainable way to get around, particularly for short point-to-point journeys.
