Top 10 cities that lead the mobility revolution

Singapore, Amsterdam and London are well prepared for the mobility revolution, as these cities take on congestion and air pollution and embrace on-demand mobility. Helsinki and Berlin are also in the top 10.

In its Urban Mobility Readiness Index, the Oliver Wyman Forum in partnership with the University of California, Berkeley, evaluates factors like a city’s regulation, infrastructure, livability and commitment to innovation. It also identifies strategies cities can employ to transform mobility into a competitive edge.

No two cities are alike but many of the problems they face are similar, ranging from congestion to air pollution and failing infrastructure. According to the Oliver Wyman Forum, the economic fates of cities moving forward will depend on their ability to turn the potential disruption from the New Mobility into opportunities and solutions.
