Over the past years many cities globally aspire and are working towards a more sustainable urban transport system. By introducing shared mobility options like e-bicycles and e-scooters, allowing ride-hailing, integrating these new modes and vehicles into public transport systems, cities hope to further reduce traffic, noise and pollution. This session will discuss how cities and mobility providers have been advancing in this transformation, review the regulatory landscape, consider safety and insurance implications, and reflect upon the latest innovations and possible future direction & solutions to accelerate the transition in the new mobility ecosystem.
