A quiet revolution
Global issues, disruptive technologies and cultural
shifts are changing the mobility landscape, affording
consumers more choices than ever before.
Urbanites - and especially on-demanders* - are looking
beyond car ownership and sole-driving as the answers
to their mobility needs.
Smartphones have given them the freedom to go
multimodal. They can start a journey cycling, use
car-sharing, and complete the last mile with kick scooters.
In the near future, they will hail driverless cars.
New choices and new freedoms in the mobility
game are creating an urban lifestyle that is nimble,
sustainable, contemporary and cool.
