to reducing congestion.

The Challenge: Congestion, Pollution, and New Mobility

Growing rates of city-dwellers, simultaneous increases in density and urban sprawl, the introduction of mobility including Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) like Uber and Lyft and micro-mobility (eScooters and eBikes), innovations in electric and autonomous vehicles, and the resulting rises in congestion and pollution – these are the evolving environmental factors that present challenges to cities today.

Looking at the list to the left, there is no denying that newer entrants to the mobility ecosystem have brought benefits.

However, these new mobility services have also brought with them a slew of new challenges and considerations.

How can we reap the rewards of these developments in mobility without pushing our already stressed infrastructures past their critical point?

The Need: Collaboration Not Competition

While the emergence of cutting-edge mobility technologies has the potential to invigorate economies and deliver benefits to society, the physical and digital infrastructures necessary to support this transition are largely absent. To sustain or even accelerate the rate of growth in the mobility ecosystem, the industry’s oldest, most reliable players will have to cooperatively evolve alongside newer entrants to the marketplace.

Rather than perpetuating the challenges facing urban communities today and later falling victim to the consequences of their own complacency, parking garages and lots have the opportunity to evolve into modern hubs of mobility and stake a leadership position in the mobility ecosystem of today and tomorrow.
