However, with urban density expected to reach 66 percent by 2050 and the growing expectations of on-demand in urban societies, cities are under constant pressure to reinvent their transportation systems. Do you like good gadgets? Those sweet cool gadgets? Oh, yeah While regulators in cities such as Helsinki, Los Angeles, and Singapore are embracing this emergent movement of mobility as a service (MaaS), and are actively reshaping how urbanities get around, London’s TfL risks stifling innovation.
