Workshop – Creating Equity in Mobility

Continued and worsening congestion in cities across the world poses the question: why are individuals still choosing car ownership instead of mass transport? The answer, in many cases, lies in the first/last mile gap in transport systems, and the convenience of door-to-door travel provided by a car. While cities struggle to handle the daily wear-and-tear to existing networks, Urban Tech and innovation can provide solutions to complement traditional public transport systems. What are the best examples of last mile innovations? How does public transport ensure it is not sidestepped by uber-efficient innovations? What do these technologies mean for city planning? Does Urban Tech also fill the freight and delivery last mile gap?
