10 Challenges and Solutions for
the Future of Mobility Management

Cities around the globe are struggling to cope with disruptive changes to mobility management.
Based on in-depth surveys of more than 400 cities worldwide, we have identified ten critical challenges that stand in the way of achieving optimised mobility management.

These include: 

  • Rapid urbanisation 
  • Limited space on city streets 
  • Shared mobility opportunities growing faster than expected
  • Other urgent issues requiring immediate attention are inadequate cross-domain integration, poor transport connectivity and overstretched personnel and transport resources. 

It is estimated that traffic congestion in cities worldwide increases travel times by 25% to 60%. Overall, a driver spends an equivalent of 148 hours per year stuck in day-to-day traffic jams.

SWARCO offers a holistic solution approach to reduce city congestion and improve traffic fluidity.

Air pollution causes about 3.4 million premature deaths per year. Apart from the devastating human cost, the financial cost is roughly €1 trillion annually, yet 49% of cities in high-income countries fail to meet WHO air- quality guidelines.

Steadily increasing traffic and the number of people vying to use the same, limited amount of space increases the number of accidents. Protecting vulnerable road users (VRUs) should be a priority, however, 22,700 people died and 1.2 million people were injured on EU roads in 2019. Pedestrians accounted for around 20% of these fatalities.

Many traffic fatalities and injuries occur at intersections, often as a result of traffic-signal malfunctions. However, many cities today only know about traffic-signal failures by reacting to public complaints instead of getting instant alerts in a modern traffic-management system.
