Cities Designed to Shape and Enable New Mobility: Experimentation at the Interface of Urban Design and Mobility

With this paper, RMI hopes to (1) offer cities and other mobility and built environment stakeholders an experimentation toolkit that puts them in a position to more quickly unlock the full potential of new mobility in cities designed to shape and enable it, and (2) engage stakeholders in further codeveloping and exploring a concept for living, flexible, and collaborative experimentation sites we’re calling MOD Cities.

Key findings

"The five elements of MOD Cities reflect the three experimentation enablers—metrics, flexibility, and collaboration—plus two elements related to people-orientation and ensuring integration with the communities and urban fabric at their edges."

"Urban areas that are designed to shape and enable new mobility—by rethinking streets, parking, and more—can lower emissions, enhance health, and improve equity. "

"Next steps that cities and other built environment and new mobility stakeholders can take reflect the experimentation enablers: metrics, flexibility, and collaboration, and are drawn from illustrative case studies such as those previously explored in this report."
