The next generation of urban mobility and transportation is likely to take the form of progressively more evolved intelligent transportation systems. Increasing digitalisation of mobility presents us with an opportunity to accelerate the transition towards sustainable urban mobility. Governments and businesses alike are using mobility data for innovative uses. Similarly, governments are using data to better understand and monitor transportation systems, complementing – and in some cases replacing – traditional methods to regulate transportation systems and plan infrastructure to meet future needs.
While raw data alone is not sufficient, sharing of data can help generate actionable insights, which are necessary to achieve these goals.
Well-orchestrated policies will be critical to shape future data sharing ecosystems, realize shared value for the public and private sectors, and achieve the desired sustainability outcomes.
Led by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the International Road Federation (IRF), under the umbrella of the the Sustainable Mobility For All initiative (SuM4All) consortium, a group of experts has developed a global, use-case agnostic policy framework and actionable guidance to support policymaking on data-sharing for sustainable urban mobility.
In the spirit of the need for public and private sector collaboration on data sharing in mobility, POLIS is working with WBCSD and IRF to host a webinar to discuss European perspectives on data sharing for MaaS.
