Urban mobility and access is a concern for transport planners, ecologists, economists, as well as individuals. New ideas are required to increase mobility and access for ever-growing cities in a sustainble way, this means in a way that decreases traffic, fuel consumption, or emissions.
Sharing transport resources suggests itself for reaching this goal. A team of researchers at the University of Melbourne and Monash University is investigating the viability of novel mobility on demand systems in various urban environments and scenarios. Supported by mobile communication and intelligent tools shared travelling appears the smart solution to ad-hoc urban travel demand.
