Japan City Adds Tech Edge to Local Mobility

Taking their smart transport innovation a notch up, Japan is embarking on a noble concept of integrating the existing demand-responsive transport (DRT) system and mobility-as-a-service (MaaS). The testbed for the project will be the city of Nogata in the Fukuoka prefecture. MaaS is gaining prominence as a practical and workable solution for supporting initiative such as the United Nations 17 SDGs goals, specifically SDG 11, which focuses on sustainable cities and communities where transport systems play an important, if not an indispensable role.

Smart Mobility Helping Urban Cities Reduce CO2 Emissions

Smart Mobility Helping Urban Cities Reduce CO2 Emissions

Cities can be a key to a net-zero emissions future as digitalisation opens up a range of new opportunities. As per IEA’s Empowering Cities for a Net-Zero future report, urban transport accounts for 4 billion tonnes of CO2-eq, more than 40% of the transport sector’s total emissions. Urban mobility operators and authorities are constantly trying to find ways to make the transition of the transport sector from fossil-fuel to low-carbon modes. They are incorporating technology to integrate transport services that encourage commuters to use their cars less.
