Digitising Urban Mobility Services
More than half of the world’s population is now living in urban areas. Inevitably, European public policies are thus confronted by the challenges of sustainable urban mobility.
In this regard, the impact and spread of digitisation across society will offer new options, both for commuters and for mobility providers. Door-to-door mobility will become accessible to everyone, even in the dead of night. Those who advocate such innovations explain that digitisation is able to reduce traffic congestion dramatically, thus opening up more space for pedestrians and cyclists. At the same time, the cost of mobility will be reduced for commuters and for taxpayers.
These challenges involve, in particular, crucial questions of land scarcity, energy costs and climate change, but are also affected by financial constraints on public budgets.
They also impose a need for substantial changes in regulation, to take account of new technological possibilities and underpin the policy objectives.
Against this backdrop, the CERRE Expert Workshop will identify and discuss which regulatory changes service providers wish to see, and why. The workshop will also address the objectives of decision-makers and transport planners, the regulatory options available to achieve those objectives and an assessment of their effectiveness.
It will bring together traditional and new mobility providers, regulators of the various markets involved - transport, energy, telecommunications, internet, etc. -, policy-makers, city administrations and urban planners, consumer representatives and, of course, representatives from the various industry stakeholders involved.
This event is reserved for CERRE members' representatives and a select number of invited guests.
