Whitepaper: Solving Curbside Congestion with Technology Innovations
Created by: Passport
Cities are becoming denser and more populous, causing congestion that is threatening to citizens’ safety, their mental and physical health, and the environment. Dockless bikes, scooters, transportation network companies (TNCs) and the introduction of autonomous vehicles are just a few of the many contributors to this phenomenon, and cities are struggling to manage the chaos.
How can this problem of congestion be solved? This whitepaper, Solving Curbside Congestion with Technology Innovations, discusses how technological ingenuity is crucial to reduce curbside congestion and to make cities safer, healthier and more livable.
