Day 2: The Future of Mobility

Between 2013 and 2030, it is estimated that traffic congestion may have cost the British economy as much as £307 billion. The world is becoming ever-busier with increasing pressure on public transportation to keep people and places connected. Currently systems are often inaccessible, congested, expensive, polluting and unreliable – bad for citizens and competitiveness. Business solutions working to connect infrastructure and services are leading the way for places across the country, and worldwide, to become healthier, more mobile and better connected.
