Future proofing our cities through smart mobility strategy
This presentation will focus on how to best position and future proof our cities for the great SEA (shared, electric, automated) change coming to the transport system. When it comes to the movement of people and things, the last 5 years have seen more transformation than the previous 50. The next 10 promise to profoundly accelerate that change. This SEA transition will upend how we traditionally plan, design, operate, finance and manage our transport and rights of way.
We are at the beginning phases of the sunsetting of our traditional transport system and the dawning of the new digital, active, shared, electric and automated transition. It will not happen in every city at once, but it will eventually reach every corner of the planet.
