World Congress is the launchpad for the publication of Future Cities: Navigating the New Era of Mobility. Compiled by the Centre for Automotive Research in Michigan, the report looks at new mobility options from Mobility as a Service (MaaS) through car, ride and bike sharing, to taxi-hailing and autonomous vehicles and examines the possible impacts on the community.

“We provide communities with a list of things they can look at to decide what mobility solutions they would favour and what is needed to implement such services,” said report author Adela Spulber. “There can be a range of outcomes for each technology, some unexpected and potentially negative, and the outcome a community will experience will be dictated by public policy,” she added.

The report examines the potential challenges and benefits for rural regions as well as for large urban communities.

Speaking at the official publication, Michigan’s governor Rick Snyder said: “At last we have some policy guidance to help authorities get to grips with all these new mobility options and to start to understand the possible implications.” Spulber added that the document offers guidelines at many levels of policy making.  

Governor Snyder accepted that finance would have to be allocated to fund any necessary infrastructure changes but said the smarter use of the existing infrastructure, coupled with a reduction in crashes, fatalities and injuries, would result in overall savings.

Information about the report is available on the MDoT booth and can be downloaded from the PlanetM website.
