Mobilty Issue #3

What’s it about?

From me to we. In our increasingly complex world, there’s no room left to go it alone. An that’s particularly true in urban mobility. The best innovations in this area are more and more based on the idea of networks. This is a topic we explore in these pages: from cars sharing data with other road users to increase safety and service providers joining forces to create a reward system for sustainable mobility, to a flat rate allowing users to switch between modes of urban transport.
