We are in a period of rapid technological and, potentially, behavioral change in the mobility landscape. To ensure community values of sustainability, equity, and healthy living are upheld, we demystify emerging mobility through 30 years of transportation planning expertise and help cities proactively plan for the future. The future is what we make it, and Nelson\Nygaard is putting people first in an era of new mobility.
Transit and Emerging Technologies looks ahead to future trends and their potential impacts on transit, in particular the adoption of autonomous vehicles. We present opportunities for cities and transit agencies to leverage these technologies to make transit more competitive in a rapidly changing mobility marketplace. We show how transit priority infrastructure, fare technology, mobility as a service (MaaS), and mobility hubs can help make transit more attractive to potential riders, and we break down when and how public-private partnerships can complement—rather than compete against—transit. The report culminates in a list of action phases for engaging with new mobility technology, providing a roadmap for cities and transit agencies to position themselves for success.
