What insights can we gain from women in shared mobility when it comes to the future, and especially, the autonomous future? We had the opportunity to interview some incredibly intelligent women working in the shared mobility space, from autonomous vehicles to federal railways, and we’ve compiled the best take-aways into the following video.

These are the questions we asked during our interviews:

HOW WILL SHARED MOBILITY CHANGE IN THE NEXT 5 YEARS?

The feedback we received on this question proves that shared mobility is certainly the way of the future – as are autonomous vehicles!

WHY IS SHARED MOBILITY IMPORTANT FOR OUR CITIES AND COMMUNITIES?

These four women fully realize the impact of shared mobility on cities and communities, as well as the world as a whole. From reducing carbon gas emissions that are crippling environments to taking the stress and havoc of traffic congestion out of commuter’s daily lives, shared mobility can rapidly change communities for the better.

WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO TO CONVINCE MORE PEOPLE TO MAKE SHARED MOBILITY PART OF THEIR LIFESTYLE?

It’s not just the responsibility of the consumers, but also the leaders, corporations, and government bodies to ensure the consumers are well educated on shared mobility.
