 Summary

Change is coming to transportation, whether we’re ready for it or not. The proportion of the global population living in urban areas continues to rise faster than capacity on roads, rail and other types of transport. This pressure on transport infrastructure to play a crucial role in changing the way we travel. Technology has a major role to play as the transport sector now stands on the brink of change where digital innovation will go further to bring about improvements for a seamless end to end journey experience.

 

Take a look at the 5 key trends identified to the future of transportation:

 

  • User-centered

Mobility services put travelers in control; public transport will become personal. This changes the approach to operations and planning based on users’ choices and priorities. Staff will adopt ‘digital uniforms’, so that they have the information to support customers.

 

  • Integrated and intelligent transport networks

Integrated and intelligent systems will respond in real-time to manage capacity and predict and avoid disruption.

 

  • Pricing and payments

Digitalization of tickets and payments will transform metro services and allow all rail operators to follow airlines by adopting e-tickets. Beyond contactless payments, pay as you travel will be based simply on location.

 

  • Automation and safety

This aspect of transportation will benefit from the exponential potential of cognitive technology, with the potential to save millions of lives worldwide, particularly on the roads.

 

  • Public and private innovation

These sectors will work together to meet the mobility challenges of the 21st century – public sector has a critical role to stimulate advances and protect citizens whilst private sector entrants will take advantage of peer-to-peer models, digital and mobile technology, and low costs to scale globally.
