Harnessing the future of mobility

Helping governments enable a better transportation experience for all

As social and technological trends converge and shape the way people and goods move from A to B, change is happening quickly. The public sector has a major role to play in making the emerging mobility ecosystem work for everyone.

The emerging public mobility ecosystem

Change is happening quickly. With new business models, new providers and cities embracing trials of the latest technology and targets, a different ecosystem of personal mobility is emerging, with implications affecting more than just the automotive industry.

Governments must understand how to navigate the future; managing and regulating disruption in a timely manner. But before they can move forward, they must understand where they are starting from and where they want to end up.

Australian governments are embracing many of the capabilities that will help them prepare for the future of mobility by taking an increasingly data-centric, agile, and customer focused view of the transport ecosystem.

However, public sector agencies still primarily function as regulators and operators of mobility services in urban markets.

They need to start applying these capabilities to how transport is planned and delivered by providing platforms that facilitate collaboration between public and private mobility operators.

Embracing the future of mobility: The Maturity Curve

They evolve maturity through undertaking mobility trials, but often without the overarching vision to guide broader internal transformation or certainty around dealing with impending disruptions.
