IGLUS Quarterly, Vol. 4, No. 3 – Digitalisation Technologies. Urban Mobility Services

- Urban

Digital technologies now affect almost every aspect of life. This alteration is already ingrained in mobility services in the form of information and communication technologies (ICT), which allows access to a copious amount of data for transport operators and users, and Mobility as a Service (MaaS), which delivers innovative solutions in mobility options, digital transport platforms and business models. These thriving technologies are pervasive and are driving the change in how transportation services are planned and operated and how people move in and around cities. Transport agencies and mobility leaders around the world are rushing to adhere to the new mobility trends in order to attract innovative economic development and to improve citizens’ quality of life.

In this issue of IGLUS Quarterly, we look at the development and implementation of the technological advancements in different mobility cases around the world and how different strategies are now focused on utilising data to deliver inclusive and cohesive mobility plans.
