Gregor Beiner, Chairperson of Taxis 4 Smart Mobility, will participate as a speaker in the session titled “How to Integrate Shared-Mobility Solutions in the Urban Mobility Ecosystem“, taking place on the third day of the Urban Mobility Days.
From 4th to 6th October, 2023, the Urban Mobility Days will bring together politicians, local authorities, industry, and urban transport practitioners with the European Commission. The aim of this three-day event is to foster collaboration, facilitate knowledge-sharing, and engage in constructive discussions to shape a sustainable, innovative, and equitable future for urban mobility across Europe. As 2023 is the European Year of Skills, this year’s Urban Mobility Days will have a specific focus on transport skills.
Among other issues, the session on Shared Mobility, taking place on October 6th, will delve into how to integrate shared mobility solutions and make them complementary to public transport within the urban mobility system. The panelists and moderator will include:
- Thomas Avanzata – UITP – Spokesperson of the European Union Committee
- Gregor Beiner – Taxis 4 Smart Mobility (T4SM) – Chairperson
- Eirini Zafeiratou – Bolt – Vice-President Global Public Policy & Regulation
- François Hoehlinger – Troopy – Deputy CEO
Shared mobility encompasses a wide range of transportation options, from shared rental vehicles like bicycles, scooters, and cars, to ride-sharing and car-pooling services, and on-demand transport solutions such as taxis and platform-based ride-hailing services. This shift towards shared-mobility schemes, particularly among younger generations, reflects a notable change in the culture of mobility and environmental consciousness.
However, as the popularity of shared mobility increases, there is a pressing need to integrate these services more effectively into the urban mobility ecosystem. This means improving connections with public transport and tackling the last-mile challenge, particularly in areas where access to public transport is limited and services are infrequent.
As the urban mobility landscape continues to evolve, the role of taxis becomes increasingly significant. At the Urban Mobility Days, we invite you to discover the innovative strides that taxis are making in shaping the future of urban transportation. From electric mobility solutions to seamless ride-hailing experiences, taxis are at the forefront of driving urban mobility transformation.
Join us and be a part of this journey towards a greener, more efficient, and sustainable urban mobility future. Together, we can create a positive impact on our cities, ensuring a cleaner and more accessible transportation network for all.
The event is being organised together with the current Spanish Presidency of the Council of the EU.
