MAAS, LEVERAGING COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE TO CODESIGN AN AGILE AND SUSTAINABLE CITY
FROM THE MINUTES 2018
By 2050, according to the UN, 66% of the world’s population will live in cities. As such, the car- and driver-centric mobility landscape will not hold. Urban planners will have to embrace the principles of MaaS to better serve citizens, with public and private sectors working together to create connected experiences.
OBJECTIVES LEAD THE WAY TO CHANGE
Cities need to formulate their ambitions in concrete, actionable objectives in order to better serve their citizens. For example:
Amaravati A new capital city in India’s Andhra Pradesh state, nicknamed “the people’s capital,” Amaravati is currently being planned around the following principles: citizens must be able to get from anywhere to an emergency service within five minutes, to a community service within 10 minutes, and from home to work in 15 minutes.
Buenos Aires Over the past five years, this city has invested heavily in a large transit system, complete with trains, bike lanes and buses. But micro-issues in the transportation sector still pose a major problem: high-income, low-density neighbourhoods with no connection to public transit, and low-income, highdensity neighbourhoods with streets too narrow for buses to pass through.
URBAN DWELLERS: A NUMBERS GAME
In 1950, only 746 million people lived in cities.
Today, roughly 3.9 billion people live in cities.
By 2045, the world's urban population is projected to clock in at over 6 billion.

"It's clear that urban mobility is not only the most important problem of our generation, but also a very difficult one to crack." - Bart Pannecoek
