January 2014 saw Arthur D. Little release the second version of the “Future of Urban Mobility” study, including an updated version of the Urban Mobility Index. In this study, Arthur D. Little highlighted what was holding cities back, and, together with its partner, the UITP – the International Association of Public Transport – identified strategic directions and imperatives for cities to consider when defining sustainable urban mobility policies and strategies.
This new report, “Strategic Directions and Ecosystems to Address China’s Urban Mobility Challenges”, was released for the 2014 edition of the Michelin Challenge Bibendum (November 10th–14th 2014, Chengdu) of which Arthur D. Little is knowledge partner. It summarizes some of the key insights from the “Future of Urban Mobility 2.0” study, and puts them in perspective by looking into specific challenges and opportunities within Greater China.
