As mobility technologies and services, consumer preferences and behaviors, and transportation policies co-evolve over the coming decades, there is great uncertainty about both the pace of continued change and which mobility options will be adopted. A few things, however, are certain: as the world’s population grows and becomes wealthier, the demand for personal mobility, convenience, and flexibility will increase.
So write a team of MIT researchers introducing their findings on how we’ll get around in the future–what we’ll use, how attitudes will change, what’s driving it all, and when it will all hit. From fuels to vehicle ownership to infrastructure and social status considerations, they take an in-depth look at what transportation will look like around the world, and what that means for industry professionals now. Read it in the March issue of Parking & Mobility.
