  3. 3. The disruptors are useful and may have a big impact, but are not everything Climate ChangeFuture Governance Co-opetition Social Innovation Sharing revolution New Leaders Energy market A.I. & RoboticsInvestmentNew business model
  4. 4. Some things (are likely to) remain the same Enabling everyone to get around Safety and Security Who pays the bill? There will always be a demand for travel
  5. 5. What is the future mobility challenge? How to improve our quality of life? How do we tackle climate change? How do we respond to urbanisation?
  6. 6. Improving quality of life Commuting time Stresslevels Women commute less than men, but are more affected by stress on the commute. People who commute by bus are more likely to be stressed than people using other modes. People who commute between 1 hour and 1 hour 30 minutes are the most stressed.
  7. 7. Tackling climate change Now 50 years25 years Phased out CO2 emissions from vehicles Cut all transport carbon emissions by 40% Design and manufacture / build Operation
  8. 8. Responding to urbanisation 68% of people will live in urban areas in 2050 (56% today) Cities are striving for greater autonomy. Unplanned growth exacerbating accessibility issues. Planning for infrastructure that meets city objectives.
  9. 9. The new case for BRT Achieving a city vision Improving user experience Happier travelers More people use it Reduce carbon emissions and better planned cities Business case for more investment • Solving challenges is a great start, but not enough; • Cultural challenges are difficult, but not impossible; • Infrastructure is the ultimate platform; • Put user needs first.
