This report uses the latest research on mobility trends to chart the changes in urban mobility needed for a rapid but realistic return and lock-in of the record low air pollution levels of March and April 2020.

Since the first EV City Casebook was released in 2012, cities around the world have overseen huge changes in mobility. Electric cars, buses, and taxis have rapidly increased in numbers, moving beyond early pilots and trials. New forms of micromobility and smartphone-based transport systems have grown in popularity.

The demand for mobility will grow significantly in the coming years, but our urban transportation systems are at their limits. Increasing digitalization and data sharing in urban mobility can help governments and businesses to respond to this challenge and accelerate the transition toward sustainability.

There is increasing recognition that women experience mobility differently from men. A growing body of literature documents the differences in men and women’s mobility patterns.

India’s transition to electric vehicles (EVs) has advanced rapidly in the past few years. A supportive policy environment, improving economics, and emerging business models have poised the EV market for significant growth in the coming decade.

The Transport and Communication Bulletin for Asia and the Pacific is a peer-reviewed journal that is published once a year by the Transport Division of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP).

As at Spring 2020, 35 global cities have set out to establish a significant area of their city as zero emission by 2030 as part of their commitment to the C40 Green and Healthy Streets Declaration. This document analyzes the approaches being taken by some leading cities to implement a zero emission area (ZEA).

Transport is traditionally a male-dominated sector. The realization that the sector and its subsystems have been conceived, designed, and matured from either a male-oriented or a gender-neutral perspective is thus unsurprising.

This briefing analyzes the contribution of major cities to the global electric vehicle market and the factors behind the success of these cities.

The Indian transport sector comprises distinct modes such as railways, road, inland waterways, air, and marine transport systems. Overall, 18% of India’s CO2 emissions come from road transport.
