Chicago Collaboration Looks to Redefine Modern Transportation

A new effort to use innovation to address transit and transportation in urban areas will focus on establishing more seamless transitions from one transportation source to another, better management of freight and resident deliveries, and even the use of drones.

The project, known as the Advanced Mobility Initiative Roadmap, is an extension of the Advanced Mobility Initiative launched by City Tech Collaborative in Chicago in April 2019. The roadmap will function as a guide for the Advanced Mobility Initiative, a three-year project…

The roadmap concept will focus on six “impact areas of urban mobility.” They include: multimodal connectivity; smart and improved infrastructure management; the adoption of drones and autonomous vehicle technologies; electric vehicles and other forms of electric mobility; better management of freight; and altogether improved public transit.
