Smart Cities and Public TransportOver 50 percent of the world’s population currently lives in cities, with the latest projections indicating that an additional 2.5 billion people will move to urban areas by 2050.
In the cities of the future, public transport will play a vital role in transporting people and goods in a sustainable and environmentally responsible way. The requirement to stimulate economic vitality while tackling the issues of climate change caused by emissions typical of city centres, will require high-level efficiency in managing the continuous flow of people around these public transport networks.
In many modern European cities like Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Stockholm public transport is already widely adopted and bicycles are incredibly popular for shorter journeys. This example will need to be embraced globally if the cities of the future and their residents are to thrive in this challenging urban environment.
