The transport sector is a major source of greenhouse gases and other pollutants. This study estimates the potential of digitalized mobility solutions, such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS), to reduce emissions and vehicle kilometers travelled in the Nordic countries. Also, to assess the potential future impact of MaaS, modelling is done to project road transport’s energy consumption, CO2 emissions and total costs in the Nordic countries up to 2050. There are still several barriers to the wider adoption of shared mobility services. We present ways to overcome these barriers with incentives and policy instruments to substitute car ownership, and specify what different actors can do to accelerate this change. Finally we present policy recommendations on how to reduce the dependence on car ownership, reduce the vehicle kilometers driven, and stimulate the demand for greener mobility services.

Mobility is fundamental to economic and social activities such as commuting, manufacturing, or supplying energy. Each movement has an origin, a potential set of intermediate locations, a destination, and a nature which is linked with geographical attributes. Transport systems composed of infrastructures, modes and terminals are so embedded in the socio-economic life of individuals, institutions and corporations that they are often invisible to the consumer. This is paradoxical as the perceived invisibility of transportation is derived from its efficiency. Understanding how mobility is linked with geography is main the purpose of this book. The third edition of The Geography of Transport Systems has been revised and updated to provide an overview of the spatial aspects of transportation. This text provides greater discussion of security, energy, green logistics, as well as new and updated case studies, a revised content structure, and new figures. Each chapter covers a specific conceptual dimension including networks, modes, terminals, freight transportation, urban transportation and environmental impacts. A final chapter contains core methodologies linked with transport geography such as accessibility, spatial interactions, graph theory and Geographic Information Systems for transportation (GIS-T). This book provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the field, with a broad overview of its concepts, methods, and areas of application. The accompanying website for this text contains a useful additional material, including digital maps, PowerPoint slides, databases, and links to further reading and websites. The website can be accessed at: http://people.hofstra.edu/geotrans This text is an essential resource for undergraduates studying transport geography, as well as those interest in economic and urban geography, transport planning and engineering.

Split into three distinct parts, the book initially lays the foundational substructure in which an interdisciplinary approach is based. It then addresses questions of practical application by considering the experiences of 50 sojourners in Portugal and the UK through an interdisciplinary lens, and summarises the implications of interdisciplinarity with regards to student mobility in European tertiary-level education. This book is essential reading for academics and postgraduate students interested in student mobility, education abroad practitioners, and policy-makers at institutional, national and international levels.
The transition towards ‘smarter’ autonomous transport systems calls for a rethink in how transport is governed/who governs it, to ensure a step-change to a more sustainable future. This book critically reflects on these governance challenges analysing the role of the state; the new actors and discourses; and the implications for state capacity.
This book presents essential new governance structures to embrace and regulate smart mobility modes. Drawing on a range of case studies, it paves the way for new approaches to governing future transportation systems. Over the past decades, Information and Communication Technologies have enabled the development of new mobility solutions that have completely redefined traditional and well-established urban transportation systems. Urban transportation systems are evolving dramatically, from the development of shared mobility modes, to the advent of electric mobility, and from the automated mobility trend to the rapid spread of integrated transportation schemes. Given the disruptive nature of those new mobility solutions, new governance structures are needed. Through a series of case studies from around the world, this book highlights governance and regulatory processes having supported, or sometimes prevented, the development and implementation of smart mobility solutions (shared, automated, electric, integrated). The combination of chapters offers a comprehensive overview of the different research endeavours focusing on the governance of smart transportation systems and will help pave the way for this important subject, which is crucial for the future of cities.

Transportation Transformation is an indispensable GPS for every automaker, transportation startup, investor, policymaker, or regulator who is planning the future of urban and suburban transit, and anyone else with a need to understand the changing ways in which consumers and goods will get around. When an industry this large changes this rapidly, strategy becomes complex and challenging. Transportation Transformation provides the crucial vision necessary to navigate those changes with confidence. Comprehensive, global, and meticulously researched, Transportation Transformation presents a vision of next-generation urban mobility arising from the interplay among three major groups: the automakers, the mobility services companies, and the cities. Transportation's future is subject to consumer shifts, driven by disruptive technology and business model innovations including autonomous or automated, connected, and electrified vehicles; on-demand mobility services, such as ride-hailing and micromobility; and rapidly multiplying new ways to deliver consumer transportation and goods. The book describes the transformations that automakers, mobility services companies, and cities must undertake, the new value chains that will form as a result of these transformations, and the business models that will enable the transformed organizations to monetize or otherwise benefit from next-generation mobility. Transportation Transformation details the central role of data, AI and other data-driven technologies in next-generation mobility and explains the key risks we must address in the process of transforming transportation. Even as traditional models of vehicle acquisition and ownership weaken, new business models are emerging, including subscription-, merchandising-, and advertising-based revenue streams. Such innovations will remake the staid and traditional value chains that dominate today's transportation markets and create new ones. Transportation Transformation discusses these new models under a variety of implementation scenarios involving automakers, Tier 1 suppliers, mobility services companies, and Internet technology providers. It analyzes the resulting new revenue streams and the value chains that will remake the economics of the automobile industry as well as the broader transportation and goods delivery industries. And it discusses in revealing detail the opportunities and risks ushered in by these shifts and disruptions.
Mobility services are quickly and continually evolving, propelled by advancements in technology, leading towards improved convenience and seamless transition between mobility providers. Mobility providers and 3rd party organizations are evolving towards cross-compatibility of services, including planning and payment over a single platform, this is called mobility as a service (MaaS). Austin, Texas has been facing the challenges of an urban fabric dependent on personal vehicles for mobility, including traffic congestion, reductions in air quality, and a disproportionate burden on marginalized communities. Adoption and enhancement of MaaS platforms within the city of Austin can relieve reliance on personal vehicles and ultimately improve residential quality of life. Still an evolving technology, existing studies have proposed structures and infrastructure that need to be in place for successful MaaS deployment, though none have looked at opportunities within Austin, which this project seeks to find. Through evaluation of existing City of Austin planning documents, proposed frameworks for deployment by researchers, and understanding of existing and proposed plans for MaaS platforms, this work seeks to understand the viability and roadmap for deployment within Austin. Results place Austin very well equipped to produce and handle and functioning MaaS platform by utilizing existing infrastructural pieces and planned mobility development, these include the number of mobility alternatives, a robust public transit service and planned increases in density. This report provides context for both policies and infrastructure that is necessary for cities to implement a successful MaaS platform
