Cities On The Move

The future of urban mobility

September 2014: This issue looks at urbanisation - more and more people moving to and living in megacities. The impact of this trend will stretch today’s concept of individual mobility to its absolute limits. This is already the case in some urban areas. Shaping cities is therefore a defining issue for the future. Limited infrastructure and increasing traffic bring both challenges and opportunities. There is no single answer, but we do have many innovative technologies and proven solutions that can be adjusted to meet the needs of any given city. Berlin, Riyadh and São Paulo are three examples we have chosen to illustrate this. The trend towards integrating different modes of transportation is an important development that each of these cities have in common. Our shared vision is seamless mobility and Berlin is one of the world’s most advanced cities in this area.
