Smart mobility: We explore the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in managing transport services. The promise and prospect of new technologies to increase transport network efficiency that may reduce congestion/overcrowding, such as real-time parking, flexible public transport scheduling and shared services, are discussed. Traditional approaches of transportation planning use the ‘predict-and- provide’ principles associated with social problems. Increasing urbanisation may exacerbate these problems, for example due to limitation of space. To deal with these issues, we will explore three, interrelated, perspectives in dealing with urban transportation: integration of land use and mobility, smart mobility and sustainable mobility.
