This workshop aims to contribute to a wider understanding of mobility for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals 2030 and implementing the New Urban Agenda. It also aims to help developing countries like India address the challenge of rising congestion and pollution, particularly in urban areas, and to better tap into the significant opportunities that sustainable transport can make possible.


More specifically, the objective of this workshop is to present and debate the preliminary findings of new major studies, focusing on the main trends affecting mobility in general and buses and taxis in particular. It will also examine the future scenarios for the expected development of the global bus and taxi markets.
