The future(s) of mobility: How cities can benefit McKinsey & Company


The way that people get around cities is changing dramatically. Technological advances and new transportation services are making it possible for city dwellers to cross town ever more efficiently and safely. These shifts could have profound economic and social effects. McKinsey analysis indicates that in 50 metropolitan areas around the world, home to 500 million people, integrated mobility systems could produce benefits, such as improved safety and reduced pollution, worth up to $600 billion. Because each city is unique, the transition to integrated mobility will also play out differently, and produce different results, from one city to the next.
