Connected Urban Growth: Public-Private Collaborations for Transforming Urban Mobility

"This paper identifies three promising applications of new mobility services by public transit agencies, and presents economic, social, and environmental modeling that illustrate the value of such partnerships to mass transit systems."

Key findings

"There are opportunities for the providers of new mobility services to collaborate with public transit agencies and city governments in ways that contribute to more integrated and efficient urban transport systems."

"Dynamic trip-planning and ticketing apps could cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 500,000 tonnes per year in 2020 across the three cities, as more people use public transportation, with Mexico City benefiting most. Total emissions from transportation across the three cities could be reduced by up to 6%."

"Deploying ride-sharing services for first- and last-mile trips to and from public transportation stops, which enables more people to use mass transit instead of their cars, could reduce per- journey emissions of GHGs and local air pollutants by 55–80%."
