Cities are wrecked by the ongoing burden of traffic congestion and carbon emissions, and smart cities are perceived as a vital strategy to cope with these challenges. Three forces are shaping the future of transportation: mobility service providers, public transit operators, and municipalities. All three stakeholders can benefit from the concept of a smart city.
These three forces behind the evolution toward smart cities need to collaborate in a way that allows them to maximise the value of their services. The sweet spot of this convergence will create the best possible mobility experience for the customer. Authorities, for instance, can streamline how they operate their cities and make them more efficient, saving money and generating new public revenues. This is critical since cities all over the world are growing and the demand for urban mobility, as well as customer requirements, are evolving rapidly.
