Emerging mobility technologies present tremendous potential for safety and accessibility improvements in urban mobility—but only if the public and private sectors work together to adopt them in a thoughtful and balanced way.

BCG’s extensive resources—delivered by experts in our Center for Mobility Innovation—help our clients in the public and private sectors shape the future of mobility.

We partner with cities around the world to solve urban mobility problems. BCG works with automotive industry clients and providers of emerging mobility technologies to help shape mobility solutions for people and goods, bring them to market, and embed them in cities’ mobility strategies.

Our Approach to Mobility Strategy

Around the world, urban mobility problems contribute to pollution, safety concerns, and disparities in job, health care, and education access. To solve these problems, mobility strategies must integrate with a host of emerging mobility technologies, be customized to a locale, and account for such key factors as population density, public transport options, and street network type.

Urban Mobility Faces Many Challenges

Our approach to the future of mobility follows what’s known as CASE logic:

Connected vehicles will account for 100% of the market by 2035

Autonomous cars will emerge in the next 15 years, with high-driving (level 4) automation featured on 10% of new cars sold in 2035

Shared mobility offerings will account for 15% of urban trips by 2035

Electric vehicles will account for 35% of new car sales in 2035
