Catherine Kargas's curator insight, November 18, 2014 8:43 PM

Canadian mayors seem intent on banning Uber ride sharing.   If consumers are interested in such a mobility option, it's because they generally see it delivering a value that current offerings do not.  So, unless city councils are prepared to change the current taxi offerings, other mobility services will continue to pop up.  


And my question is always the same: if we're protecting the taxi industry against Uber, what will happen when driverless technology is commercially available and Car2Go decides to offer it through its fleet of car sharing vehicles?  Will governments in this country fight it?

Summary of the CityLab Future of Transportation series. Some good points and comments regarding multimodal mobility as a way to sustainable transportation. Driverless cars are, of couse, discussed but disappointing to see that electromobility was not mentioned as part of a sustainable transportation future.
