Smart Mobility

What’s smart about sitting in traffic, missing your train? Urban mobility, however, can be smart, and increasingly it’s the person on the street making the difference. People fed up with congested cities, are innovating smart mobility with new mobile technologies and intuitive apps which integrate public transportation, better infrastructure, and car sharing. Plus, smart mobility puts green at the top of the list – whether it’s electric cars or more bike lanes. All in all, smart mobility solutions create less congestion, better access to public transport and cleaner air. Smart mobility – a good move for the future.
