What is the future of shared mobility? Governance and Integration Working Group explores!
POLIS’ Governance and Integration Working Group convened in Berlin on 19 and 20 October, to discuss shared mobility and the challenges and opportunities it brings to cities and regions.
Shared mobility is growing rapidly in cities across the globe. Urban planners and citizens alike are seeking alternatives to personal car transit, as decarbonisation, decongestion and safety rise up local agendas.
However, municipal decision-makers and practitioners now find themselves at a crossroads, with key questions to address:
- How can shared mobility be expedited?
- How can it be oriented towards public good while also ensuring its economic viability?
- And how can we ensure that its integration with public transport is complementary rather than competitive?
This meeting in Berlin cut to the chase, providing a forum for POLIS members to exchange on the issue, in coordination with leading experts in the field. From London's e-scooter trial to Berlin's JELBI MaaS app to insights into car sharing from Autodelen, the meeting traversed some of the key shifts occurring across Europe, examining what this means for cities, and action going forward.
