Arthur D Little recently released their Future of mobility 3.0 report, which considers recent societal and technological trends alongside new mobility solutions. The report also updates the Arthur D Little’s Urban Mobility Index, increasing the scope of the index to 100 cities and expanding the assessment criteria. The index scores cities using 27 indicators to assess mobility in urban areas according to ‘maturity’, ‘innovativeness’ and ‘performance’.
Besides public transport such as rail, metro, tram and bus networks, collective passenger transport also covers car-sharing, car-pooling and flexible mobility services such as train-taxi schemes and demand-responsive transport in areas of low demand.
Improvements to public transport services may address public transport vehicles and related infrastructure, as well as management techniques.
