End of public transport as we know it? On-demand transportation | autonomous driving | MaaS

The aftermath of the Covid pandemic has left public transit systems grappling with lower revenues from ticketing, prompting cities to seek innovative solutions. But it’s the pace of technology itself which is pushing for innovation on the side of the offer of mobility.

On-demand transportation is gaining prominence, attracting new players to the market and offering a potential remedy to the challenges faced by traditional transit.

Simultaneously, autonomous driving technology is evolving, with significant investments from industry players and the launch of groundbreaking products – although still at a pilot phase.

The framework

Amidst technological evolution, questions loom about the legislative framework governing these advancements.

As we explore the economic landscape, McKinsey suggests that the cost per mile of a robo-taxi trip could be only 20 percent higher than that of a private non-autonomous car in certain contexts. The implications for public transport operators will hinge on the strategies adopted by municipalities and transit agencies.

Our videoreporting “End of public transport as we know it? On-demand transportation | autonomous driving | MaaS” will feature insights from key industry players, providing some glimpse of the future trends in mobility.
