Global Transportation Trends 2022

Future-ready transportation

Transportation plays a fundamental role in supporting economic growth, creating jobs and connecting people to essential services. As governments grapple with a mixture of old and new challenges to modernizing transportation systems, explore the five emerging trends shaping the mobility industry as it enters the next era of exponential growth.

Technology will be pivotal in modernizing our transportation systems, improving their efficacy and effectiveness. However, the use of data requires new governance structures relating to data-sharing and privacy. Transportation ecosystems will also have to build their resilience to cyber and climate related risks whilst providing equitable and inclusive services for all. 

Global Transportation Trends 2022 explores five trends addressing the myriad of challenges facing the transportation industry today:

  1. Creating sustainable funding mechanisms for transportation: Develop, test and scale sustainable alternatives to fuel taxes, encouraging government agency transparency to build public trust.
  2. Electric Vehicles (EV) in a generational shift in mobility: Build solutions to the charging infrastructure problem and address the potential talent shortage in the EV industry.
  3. Modernizing transportation systems in an inclusive, equitable way: Adopt an equity-centred approach to invest and design transportation systems,including underserved and marginalized communities in project planning processes.
  4. Making transportation networks more resilient: Bolster transportation system’s resilience to cyber and climate-related threats.  
  5. Turbocharging digital and technological innovation: Forge better systems to scale digital innovations with the transportation industry.
