The Near Future of Urban Transport
By Itzhak Benenson | Tel Aviv Univesity
New and emerging transportation modes and solutions — ride-hailing, scooters, AV (Automated Vehicles), and MaaS (Mobility as a Service) — will repair our always congested urban reality. This is the basis of the forecasts of urban mobility that were proposed during the last two decades. In retrospect, they all look over-optimistic.
I review these forecasts versus the observed and simulated urban transportation reality, and conclude that they rely on the non-robust projections that overestimate the rationality of human reaction to the changes in transportation infrastructure and conditions. Based on this analysis, I suggest possible evolutionary pathways of the urban transportation systems.
The event will take place on Thursday, June 2nd at 12:00
