Digital technology is giving rise to new urban mobility solutions. One such technology is digital payments, which has experienced huge growth in recent years. Whether it is paying for parking, public transport, bike share, fuel or a highway toll - digital payments reduce delays and provide real-time visibility, helping to increase the efficiency of urban transport systems and improve the customer experience.
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.
