Race of Megacities. Who will be the first to create a new transport market?
The transport sector is in the midst of a digital revolution: micromobility, sharing services and drones promise to change the entire mobility infrastructure in major cities. Major megacities are in a race to create the most efficient and appealing transportation system: they are investing in infrastructure, support innovations and technological developments to maintain their leading positions on the international arena. Such a race directly impacts the development of a city's transportation business and the user experience of its residents: new maps and new kinds of transport appear; the need to have your own car decreases; and public transport becomes more mobile and accessible.
