What challenges do metropolitan areas face in terms of spatial and transport planning integration?
How can traditional and new transport modes be integrated in harmony?
Access to key activity hubs has deteriorated and private vehicle reliance has grown, largely due to expanding urban sprawl where distances between functional destinations (workplaces/shops etc.) have increased. Widespread congestion has become the norm in many cities, reducing people’s quality of life through negative externalities, such as pollution or increased travel times. Today, new mobility services and technologies present a possible solution. However, authorities face several challenges when it comes to harmoniously integrating these developments into spatial and transport plans.
This event brings together transport and spatial planning professionals, public authorities and policy makers, mobility technogy developers, autonomous vehicles and drone manufacturers, and researchers to discuss the spatial and transport planning challenges metropolitan areas face in terms of integrating traditional and new transport modes.
