New mobility services

New mobility services (NMS) such as dockless bikes, e-scooters, automated pods and any new types of services allowing for passenger and freight transportation can help solve some of the main issues that urban areas face today, such as congestion and poor air quality. Their integration within a Mobility as a Service system is a key component of their success in delivering a sustainable mobility ecosystem.
