Bloomberg quotes Strategic Foresight Initiative Nonresident Senior Fellow Greg Lindsay on the New Cities Foundation launch of the ambitious Connected Mobility Initiative to explore the future of urban transport:

Over the next 12 months, Lindsay will share his insights into the future of urban mobility at New Cities Foundation global events including the New Cities Summit in Jakarta (June 9-11, 2015) and Cities on the Move, a one-day cross-sector gathering in London (October 14, 2015), as well as events by other leading organizations.

Greg Lindsay, Senior Fellow of the New Cities Foundation, said: "I'm delighted to work with the New Cities Foundation in exploring the future of urban mobility. The smart phone is becoming as significant a technology in transportation as the car. Now that Uber, Lyft, Ola, GrabTaxi, Didi Dache and others have demonstrated the potential of mobility-on-demand, the next step will be to integrate multiple modes of urban transport through information. How that happens and who owns it-will it be a public good, or privately provisioned?-will have a tremendous impact on cities in the years to come."
