“Our environment influences how we move around. The way we organise our mobility system affects our environment. Shifting towards a more sustainable mobility system is not just about electrification and efficiency. We will need to pay more attention to accessibility and inclusiveness, and how to adapt our collective travel behaviour and habits.”
