Sharing: one objective to drive transforming transportation

January 11th, 2018 · No Comments

Ongoing at the World Bank is the joint World Resources Institute and World Bank annual Transforming Transportation conference.  When it comes to Transportation, Sustainable Mobility for All has four core objectives:

  • Universal Access
  • Efficiency
  • Green Mobility
  • Safety

Robin Chase, founder of Zip Car and author of Peers Inc, expressed an ‘epiphany’ during the first panel.

Rather than four objectives, which can be hard to absorb and retain, I just had an epiphany that one word can capture this.

Sharing.

Sharing enables access.

Sharing drives efficiency, with fewer vehicles on the road, greater usage of each built item, and less pollution per mile traveled.

Sharing drives and enables safety, as the most dangerous element of the transportation system is the personal vehicle.

Sharing reduces pollution impacts and help drives greater electrification of transportation.

Sharing … the one word to capture the needs for driving a better 21st century transportation system.

NOTE: See Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities.
