Cars and second order consequences

Electric and autonomy are rolling through the car industry, changing
everything about it. But though they transform gasoline and car accidents,
they could change a lot more besides - everything from cigarettes to
parking. It's the second-order consequences that are hardest to see, but
most interesting.

Shared Mobility: Innovation for Liveable Cities

Shared Mobility: Innovation for Liveable Cities | seamless multimodal transport | Scoop.it

"It (the report) examines the effect of replacing all car and bus trips in a mid-sized European city with automatically dispatched door-to-door services. The report finds that such systems can massively reduce the number of cars on city streets while maintaining similar service levels as today. They also result in significant reductions of distances travelled, congestion and negative environmental impacts. Not least, automatically dispatched, door-to-door services also improve access and reduce costs to consumers.

Rock Project's insight:
"Congestion disappeared, traffic emissions were reduced by one third, and 95% less space was required for public parking in our model city served by Shared Taxis and Taxi-Buses. The car fleet needed would be only 3% in size of the today's fleet. Although each car would be running almost ten times more kilometres than currently, total vehicle-kilometres would be 37% less even during peak hours. The much longer distances travelled imply shorter life cycles for the shared vehicles. This enables faster uptake of newer, cleaner technologies and contributes to more rapid reduction of CO2 emissions from urban mobility. 

Citizens gain in many different ways. They no longer need to factor in congestion. Almost all of their trips are direct, without need for transfers. Mobility is much cheaper thanks to the highly efficient use of capacity; prices for journeys in the city could be 50% or less of today even without subsidy. Huge amounts of space previously dedicated to parking can be converted to uses that increase livability, from public parks to broader sidewalks, and more and better bicycle lanes. Particularly striking is how a shared mobility system improves access and social inclusion. In the simulation, inequalities in access to jobs, schools or health services across the city virtually disappeared."

Karolina Maria Chachulska's curator insight, October 24, 2017 11:39 AM

There are a number of players in the world of car sales and car rentals, both online and offline. But what Fair is bringing to the table appears to be something more akin to a lease program with unfixed terms, and a range of very modern details: you use a mobile app to do everything, from searching for cars to authenticating yourself to paying; you need to give only five days’ notice before you decide to return the car; you get all-in monthly payments (insurance is extra); and AI-based pricing that Fair claims means users will only get “great deals.”

'Digital Technology Is Ready to Transform Cities 
Smartphones already shape how people interact with cities. A new set of digital technologies—ubiquitous connectivity, real-time sensors, precise location services, distributed trust, autonomous systems, and digital actuation and fabrication—can collectively transform city life. But towards what end? Will they make the city more responsive, equitable, innovative, and human or will they challenge civil liberties and security? We believe digital technologies have the potential to solve today’s pressing urban problems in ways that respect privacy—serving as a bridge to cities of the future.'
