Cities and Mobility & Transportation: Towards The Next Generation of Urban Mobility

Print Share
Mobility is a key dimension of cities. As urbanization accelerates, the demand for mobility and transportation escalates. This booming demand stresses the existing urban transportation systems and infrastructures, intensifies widespread congestion and traffic gridlock, increases road accidents, and augments CO2 emissions and air and noise pollution, which is starting to cause serious health concerns. How will our current transport systems cope with this rising demand for mobility in cities? How can city planners and mayors around the world come up with strategies and solutions that enhance sustainable and integrated urban transportation systems? What is the future of urban mobility? This volume is part of a book series called "IESE Cities in Motion: International urban best practices." Cities and Mobility & Transportation focuses on how to address the mobility challenge in cities. It aims to be: - an insightful analysis of the main urban mobility and transportation trends and challenges - a collection of international best practices on sustainable urban mobility - an instrument to help city managers and policymakers solve the urban mobility challenge and improve accessibility in cities for the benefit of all.
