Leipzig – Shared mobility makes access to jobs and other public services easier and more equitable, according to a new report released by the International Transport Forum (ITF) at its annual summit.

The report examines how cities can manage the challenges of geographic scale and of transition to shared mobility services. It looks at the impact of, for instance, replacing private cars in a city with shared services – like shared taxis or taxi-buses as feeders to existing high-capacity public transport networks such as metro or rail lines.

This facilitates the introduction of shared services and increases the use of those high-capacity services and the overall positive impact in terms of congestion reduction, more equitable access and gains in public space, according to the report.
