From soft mobility to the sustainable use of the car and from electric vehicles to autonomous transportation, the mobility of the future must not only fit in with new urban rhythms, but it must also be energy and resource efficient in order to play its full role in a carbon-free society.

Urban concentration and the ever-increasing development of communities entail growing needs for mobility, at a time when climate change is a challenge that we all face. Nowadays, modern mobility has a duty not only to reﬂect the diversity of expectations of city dwellers but also to take into consideration the issues of public health and greenhouse gas emission control. This is why mobility must necessarily be conceived within the scope of the ecology and technology transitions currently underway so that we can guarantee future generations the quality of life that we owe them.
In recent years we have expanded our range of skills in response to the challenges and needs of our public and private sector clients. We are now active across the full value chain, from upstream consulting to the proposal of veritable bundles of mobility services, all for the direct beneﬁt of populations.
Day after day, our teams demonstrate their ability to develop the right technological solutions, for example to offer optimal access to different modes of transport or adapt infrastructure to the latest safety requirements. Our teams offer ever more effective services that help people get around better every day. In the area of smart parking, for example, we operate in around 40 towns and cities in France and abroad, with key references such as Paris and Amsterdam.
Our solutions involve not only the decongestion of urban space through better vehicle rotation and organisation of street parking, but also making users more responsible for their own behaviour and practices. When we draw up mobility blueprints and master plans for our clients, we additionally promote the implementation of low emission zones and thus lower pollution levels in our communities, with a genuine desire to “decarbonise” our city centres.
Over and beyond its primary function, today’s mobility has become a cornerstone of urban planning policy, placing transport at the heart of a city life refocussed on the place of the user. Smart cities require genuine intermodality that organises and enables smooth connections between one transport mode and another according to needs and temporalities. This rationalises all our efforts over the years in developing multimodal interchange hubs in the largest cities and reinforcing the space dedicated to green and alternative modes of transport. Reinventing mobility is undoubtedly a technical and institutional challenge of monumental scale, but it is truly imperative if we wish to promote new, more responsible travelling practices.
