'Future of mobility: urban strategy' looks at transport regulation

The Government has announced a review into transport that it hopes will pave the way for transforming the way people and goods move around our cities.

The ‘Future of mobility: urban strategy’ review will explore regulations around new types of vehicles including e-scooters and e-cargo bike trailers; how sharing data can improve services by reducing congestion; and how journey planning and payment can be made more simple. The wide-ranging review will also explore modernising laws from the 1800s that are providing a barrier to innovation.

Alongside this, the Government is launching a competition for up to 4 new ‘future mobility zones’, backed by £90 million, to test ideas to improve journeys for people across the country. With 80% of people in the UK now using smartphones, ideas will include smoother payment systems, better, more up-to-date travel information and the use of innovative forms of transport, making travel in towns and cities more convenient, more reliable and cheaper.

The strategy, a key part of the Government’s modern Industrial Strategy, also sets out 9 key principles that will guide Government decision-making going forward, ensuring that emerging transport technologies are safe, accessible and green.

These include being: safe, secure and guarded against cyber threats; accessible to older people and those with visible and non-visible disabilities; and in line with the government’s ambition for a zero-emission future.

The strategy document can be found here.
