Mobility's Next Generation Depends On Collaboration

Data-sharing and collaboration are critical to succeed in the New Mobility

February 27, 2020

When it comes to New Mobility, collaboration is key. The models for both municipalities and businesses to develop the next generation of mobility will depend on data-sharing and joint solutions.

Whether this includes a firm's app having open-access to a city's transit data or cities granting electric scooter companies the right to operate within city limits, New Mobility models depend on elements that no single entity, whether a governmental, public, or private institution, owns completely.

London, for example, has an open-data policy to foster third-party application development, simplifying data access for developers. As of the end of 2019, more than 13,000 developers have registered for access to such data. Elsewhere, Singapore's Smart Nation initiative fosters close collaboration between the government, industry, and academia to develop innovative mobility concepts.

In the video below, filmed during the inaugural Global Mobility Executive Forum in Paris in November 2019, Caroline Parot, CEO of Europcar, Bernard Tabary, CEO of Keolis, and Anne Pruvot, a partner at Oliver Wyman, elaborate on the importance of collaboration in mobility's future.

The economic centers of tomorrow will be shaped by their ability to adapt to New Mobility business models and ecosystems. Check out The Oliver Wyman Forum's Urban Mobility Readiness Index to see how 30 cities rank in their preparedness to lead the mobility revolution.
