The way towards sustainable urban mobility requires a multimodal and interlinked transport system such as cars, public transport, and bikes. Future urban transport systems will connect transportation modes, services, and technologies in massively networked ways between vehicles, infrastructure, and users.

A well-connected system of systems can enable users to easily move from point A to point B with lower CO2 emissions regardless of mode. Furthermore, these innovations help to use the existing transportation system more efficiently.

Transformation is fuelled by technologies in the field of electrification of vehicles (EVs), connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs), Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and renewable energy infrastructure.

Singapore policymakers have been laying the groundwork for digital-age mobility to serve as a model and create new local and export business opportunities.
