How people and goods get around our cities is undergoing considerable change. As new mobility options are introduced, cities and communities are trying to lower emissions, improve safety and increase affordability and accessibility of transport networks. Cities, mobility partners and communities are taking a systems perspective to rethink the movement of people and goods.
Developed by the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on Mobility, the Guidelines for City Mobility: Steering Towards Collaboration preliminarily define the points that anchor the relationship between both parties to ensure that the Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities and Principles of Mobility Justice are upheld, the goals of cities and mobility partners are accomplished in a mutually supportive way and the basic mobility needs of users are prioritized above all. Contributors to the guidelines include NUMO, the New Urban Mobility alliance.
