Global Transportation Trends 2022

Future-ready transport

Transport 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 modernising transport systems, explore the five emerging trends shaping the mobility industry as it enters the next era of exponential growth.

Technology will be pivotal in modernising our transport systems, improving their efficacy and effectiveness. However, the use of data requires new governance structures relating to data-sharing and privacy. Transport 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 transport industry today:

  1. Creating sustainable funding mechanisms for transport: 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. Modernising transport systems in an inclusive, equitable way: Adopt an equity-centred approach to invest and design transport systems, including underserved and marginalised communities in project planning processes.
  4. Making transport networks more resilient: Bolster transport system’s resilience to cyber and climate-related threats.
  5. Turbocharging digital and technological innovation: Forge better systems to scale digital innovations with the transport industry.
