Sustainable urban mobility – this is something on everyone’s mind: local-authorities, taxi, ride-hail and PHV operators, and consumers. Electric vehicles (EVs) are getting a lot of attention, as they can be a swift solution to emissions issues. But they are not a magic bullet solution to all our issues. Beyond improving car emissions, we also need to radically change how we use cars, and taxi, ride-hail, and PHV operators have a big role in this shift.
Pushing the Future of Public Transit: 5 New Forms of Mobility Local Authorities Are Embracing
Since the first omnibuses took to the streets in the 1800s, public transit has evolved a fair bit. Today, local authorities are under mounting pressure to continue innovating how they deliver and support public transit to better serve citizens in a way that is also sustainable for the environment. And as they innovate, we see a new era of cross-sector collaboration.
10 European Cities Implementing Traffic Restrictions & Congestion Charges
Cities across the map are picking up momentum in regulating cars in their inner-city areas to kerb congestion and make cities more liveable for citizens. Is this new urban mobility era a threat or opportunity to ride-hail operators? We think it’s an opportunity.
Laying the Tracks for Shared & Electric Mobility Services in Suburbs
Urban centres are the usual hotbed for innovation, and this is no exception for new forms of shared and electric mobility. But how do we get this innovation to suburbs where it is needed most to kerb commuting and congestion issues?
Rethinking Fare-Free Public Transport: Is It Really the Best Key to Reduce Cars in Our Cities?
Cities across the world are implementing fare-free public transportation to address mounting congestion and CO2 emission challenges. But will it be the champion urban mobility solution? This I am not sure about.
Ride Sharing Won’t Solve Congestion Problems in Cities. We Need to Jump to a New Level of Urban Mobility.
How to leverage digital technology to interconnect public transport with taxi & ride-hail services to optimize the entire system and effectively reduce the number of cars in cities and congestion? That’s what Mileus was founded for.
An Effective Combination of Public Transport and Ride-Hailing Services for Better Transport in Cities
Juraj Atlas has raised a pre-seed round of 400,000€ for his new startup Mileus that aims to improve the overall traffic situation in large European cities. The platform will make travelling easier by interconnecting public transport with ride-hailing services.
First Mile, Backbone, and Last Mile Transport – Building a Sustainable Intermodal System
Intermodality seems to be at the core of all the solutions that might bring an alternative to a private car for our basic daily transportation needs. But how to build an intermodal system that really might stand for its viable alternative?
Why Ride-Hailing Doesn’t Really Help Decrease Congestion in Cities
Initially, we all believed that ride-hailing would help decrease car overload and congestion, but we’ve seen the exact opposite happened. However, there is a comfortable alternative to ride-hailing: intermodality.
