    Integrating micro mobility with public transport – a design approach

    This presentation discusses the work of Monash University’s Mobility Design Lab located in Melbourne Australia and in particular focuses upon examples of integrating micro-mobility into mainstream public transport. Cities around the world are experiencing a resurgent growth in micro-mobility spurred on by both the need to meet decarbonising goals and ubiquitous connected technology as an enabler to multimodal shared transport. The Mobility Design Lab shares examples of research projects that address both the challenges and opportunities of this changing mobility landscape.
