Transportation of tomorrow: Enabling smarter intermodality
The Convention gave an overview of recent and future trends, and also strengthened links between the different stakeholders.
The social perspective of mobility was also addressed at the Convention. Furthermore, to reflect the global nature of mobility, experiences and perspectives from other regions have been shared to complement the European view.
The Mobility Convention 2014 brought together top-level experts representing industry, research, and the users to discuss smarter intermodality, to share the latest developments, insights, and challenges.
Intermodality is the key to sustainable passenger mobility, and improving the interfaces is a major challenge in taking mobility to the next level. As new technologies develop and customer behavior changes, fundamental questions have to be asked again: Which are the mobility needs of people in the future? How will they travel? What kind of concepts and new challenges lie ahead? Which role will intermodality play?
