Future of Mobility Grand Challenge consultation package launched

Department for Transport and Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles has announced its Future of Mobility Grand Challenge consultation package, that “seeks views and evidence from all those with an interest in how we get around.”

The current package includes calls for evidence on:

  • Future of Mobility: understanding how technology has the potential to transform the future of travel, whilst also addressing issues such as congestion, pollution, safety and increased mobility for people who need it most. The consultation has two parts:
    • Part 1: evidence to inform Future of Urban Mobility Strategy
    • Part 2: wider context on the Future of Mobility Grand
  • Last Mile Delivery: seeking views on potential opportunities to protect the environment, support business and improve road safety through the use of new technology and varied modes of transport. 

This package focuses largely on urban mobility considerations. Rural and regional mobility will be the topic of another Call for Evidence at a later date.

techUK will be submitting a response to the Future of Mobility call for evidence. If you would like to contribute to this, please contact Jessica Russell.

We also encourage our members to submit their evidence for the Last Mile Delivery CfE, to help to shape the future of this important aspect of mobility in the UK.

If you have any questions about this, or SmarterUK’s transport work, please do get in touch with Jessica Russell or Matthew Evans.
