Mobility study shows extent of technology's impact on transportation
July 10, 2019 / PHILLIP GRANT
The study covers 37 cities across 15 countries and looks at social-demographic changes including work patterns, use of digital technologies and regional development. The vast majority of people (83 per cent) believe technology plays an essential role in simplifying their travel in a city while more than two thirds (70 per cent) of those who own a smartphone use a transport app or maps and plans at least once a month, according to a new global study. Even the most “digimobile” though are worried about being left behind by the speed of technology and almost three-quarters (71 per cent) have concerns about how companies use their personal data.
