Urban Mobility !

Urban mobility is a fairly recent concept that reflects changing lifestyles. Today, there are more inhabitants in the cities than in the countryside. But this influx to the cities and the increase in population, which augurs for future megacities, is not without creating new problems. We must be able to ensure mobility needs. In this regard, we note that city dwellers tend to spread time commuting to work and also move for other reasons (leisure, cultural tourism, sports activities), day and night.

What's happen ?

The increase in the need for travel in cities and the awareness of nuisances related to the automobile (pollution, CO2, noise, congestion) have led the town halls and public authorities to set up transport policies. The aim of these policies is to provide alternative travel solutions to the car and to develop public transport, cycling and scooters. The various solutions of shared vehicles, such as self-service cycling, carsharing with electric cars or not will lead to a new approach to the car, including its depersonalization for use in use.

New mobile technologies are also helping to reshape the city: there are smartphone apps and websites to plan trips, find out about schedules and get around.

An example is the organization I Have My Pass for the promotion of the Structuring Network of public transit of the city of Quebec

Then, what is your choice in urban transport ?
