Future of mobility

Foresight project exploring the opportunities and implications arising from the future transport system.

Technological developments and disruptive business models will have a significant impact on how people and goods move around the UK over the coming decades. This project investigates the impact and consequences of these issues on how people and goods will be transported.

The project aims to:

  • share the latest scientific evidence with policy makers
  • use futures techniques to inform policy decision making
  • help policy makers deal with uncertainty around the future of transport

Emerging areas of focus are:

  • the interaction between people, technology and data
  • new transport business models
  • alternate transport futures

These areas are likely to develop over the course of the project.
