Future of Urban Mobility: strategy and policy
On Thursday 12 October, London Transport Museum hosted the final discussion in our Future of Urban Mobility series. The topic for discussion was: What strategies and policies are required to achieve truly transformational change to mobility in cities? Joining the speaker panel were Professor Tony Travers, Director at LSE London, and Mike Waters, Director of Strategy and Policy at Transport for West Midlands. The discussion was chaired by Giles Clifford, Partner at Gowling WLG.
Thanks to new approaches to mobility – from autonomous vehicles to demand responsive services – we are on the verge of a fundamental shift in how we move around our cities. But are our cities sufficiently equipped to make the most of these social, economic and environmental opportunities? Or will consumers and private companies be best placed to determine how we move around the urban spaces of the future?
The third Future of Urban Mobility event saw discussion of policy and the changing landscape of transport provision across a range of interlinked topics: the capacity of the market to lead change, the role of transport providers, road space regulation, the innovation landscape, disrupted economies, and public opinion. The key points from the discussion are summarised here: Future of urban mobility_Strategy and policy, 12 Oct 2017
