What is Smart Mobility?

  • Flexibility: Multiple modes of transportation allow travelers to choose which ones work best for a given situation.
  • Efficiency: The trip gets the traveller to their destination with minimal disruption and in as little time as possible.
  • Integration: The full route is planned door-to-door, regardless of which modes of transportation are used.
  • Clean Technology: Transportation moves away from pollution-causing vehicles to zero-emission ones.
  • Safety: Fatalities and injuries are drastically reduced.
