Insights on New Mobility
This year, we have interviewed hundreds of international industry experts from transportation organizations, transit authorities, technology providers, and we come to one conclusion: we have reached a tipping point and we now need to take action. Our routes and places, and how we look at them, must evolve to respond to the reality of new mobility. In our mind, collaboration is key to maximizing returns for everyone and generating faster change towards productive New Mobility outcomes.
At WSP, we want to support progress towards the best possible outcomes for the future of our cities, suburbs and rural centres, and the routes between them. That is why we will be at ITS Montreal, and at many other events about the future of transportation.
Update: On Monday October 30th, WSP released a ground breaking White Paper on New Mobility, with insights from experts from around the world.
