Metrolinx New Mobility

Metrolinx, an agency of the Government of Ontario, Canada, selected WSP USA to outline emerging trends in technology and society and their potential impact on transportation in the Toronto region.


Informing Policy Around the Role of New Mobility

Under the current paradigm shift, change across the mobility landscape comes not only from the emergence of new types of vehicle technologies (e.g., driverless vehicles), but from new ways in which those vehicle technologies are used and in how people interact with them. New models of mobility blur the lines between public and private transport, as well as how modes of transportation are defined. How these new models impact the way cities function will depend on how government, the private sector, and users respond. Our team developed a report to evaluate how changes in technology, consumer behavior and the built environment come together to support the client’s goals. The report can be found here.
