Mobility of the Future
Cities are crowded and this is reflected in the mobility characteristics of that city. Cities are reducing the parking allowance or even preventing cars from entering the city center, due to the unacceptable air pollution and lack of parking space. The city of Amsterdam has already decided to keep all cars out of the city center by 2030. Paris and other cities are also applying such policies. Therefore, it is important that innovative solutions are developed in order to make this mobility transition possible.
