The study, which involved engagement with over 70 executives from more than 30 organizations worldwide, aims to shed light on the impact COVID-19 will have on mobility patterns in the medium- to long term. It also provides strategic responses to enable mobility policy makers and solutions providers to leverage the disruption caused by the crisis, and make step changes in the post-COVID-19 world.
“Changing the basic paradigm of mobility systems is hugely challenging, and up to now, most cities and countries have struggled to make the fundamental changes needed to move towards sustainable, resilient and human-centric urban mobility systems,” said François-Joseph Van Audenhove,Partner at Arthur D. Little and Head of the Future of Mobility Lab. “Despite, or even because of, the economic stress that we will see over the coming years, now could be the time for stakeholders to act together to make it happen.”
The report provides a summary of more than 100 actions that transport authorities and mobility solutions providers are taking, or planning to take, in response to the crisis. It also identifies six “game changers” that are critical for mobility-system players to make the most of what is a unique window of opportunity to move forward and accelerate change.
“Together, we must move beyond the management of short-term response and seize a historical and unique opportunity to start overandshape the future of our cities,” said Jerome Pourbaix, Senior Director, Global Growth at UITP.“We don’t want to go from lockdown back to gridlock; therefore, this is our chance to work together and bring back better mobility to people in our cities.”
