New report by the JRC looks into the future of road transport

JRC (Joint Research Centre of European Commission) launches a new report “The future of road transport – Implications of automated, connected, low-carbon and shared mobility”.

The report shows how massive changes on the horizon such as automation, connectivity, decarbonisation and sharing, represent an opportunity to move towards a transport system that is more efficient, safer, less polluting and more accessible than the current one centred on private car ownership.

According to Biagio Ciuffo, the lead author of the report, “New transport technologies on their own won’t spontaneously make our lives better. Improvements in governance and the development of innovative mobility solutions will be crucial to ensure that the future of transport is cleaner, safer and more equitable than its car-centred present”.
