Both freight and public transport have been pivoting towards the use of digital approaches for system planning and operation and have developed platforms that help streamline usage and access to the service, both by operators and users. Transport digitalization can open new opportunities for markets, services and it can potentially foster inclusion through information and service integration. For digitalization to be transformative, it will need to be well integrated in sustainable mobility approaches and address rising inequity, climate change, and road safety.

This networking panel brings together key leaders in this space that seek to harness the transformative potential of digitalization to create more sustainable and equitable outcomes. The city of Merida undertook a thorough process of digitalization, using it to help transform the public transport system. Now, the city will be addressing how this can achieve public policy goals and support the city’s sustainability, accessibility, and gender inclusion goals. Coopcycle is leading a transformation of on-demand delivery working conditions using a digital platform. Finally, UNEP has launched a new project, ACCESS, that looks to support digitalization as a catalyst for emissions reduction and sustainability in six countries.
