After The Car
Brightly coloured, electrically-assisted bikes and scooters, rented via smartphone platforms, are crowding out street corners in cities across the globe – making cities greener and more liveable. But many questions remain around vehicle safety and governance, whether the business models really work, and whether they are really as environmentally friendly as they claim to be. In this episode we explore the forces shaping the future of urban mobility with analyst Horace Dediu, policy advisor Sharon Masterson, micromobility entrepreneur Amit Gupta and urban theorist Carlos Moreno. This episode is supported by Pictet Wealth Management and also includes commentary from market strategist Julien Holtz.
