What could London look like in 2050? How will the way people live, work and move around the city have changed?
Falling car ownership, new mobility and delivery services, and electric vehicles are already having an impact on our transport system. As we build the city of tomorrow, new developments and master plans will need to consider how people will move around the city in the future, including the potential for car-free lifestyles.
Centre for London held a quick-fire presentations evening event where entrepreneurs and policymakers will showcase their ideas to tackle some of London’s current transport concerns and prepare for the challenges of the future.
