MORE DATA FOR MOBILITY PLANNING

Technological innovations are optimizing the relationship between passengers and drivers, and individual digital transport platforms generate millions of urban mobility data that can help better cities.

Technology affects urban transport since cities exist. A few decades ago, animal-drawn trams were replaced by VLT; Traditional cars are being transformed into freeways and bicycles are increasingly assisted by electricity. Some advances are driven by the need for more efficient transportation - such as bicycles and shared vehicles - while others are imported from other sectors - such as batteries and electricity used to replace fossil fuels. Although the change is uninterrupted, there are things that continue as they were a century ago: people walking and cycling are mostly on the streets. In Latin America, for example, non-motorized means of transport represent around 30%.
