ICT and the Internet have reached mobility arena. Vehicles have become computers on wheels and start sharing their information to further improve traffic. As a consequence, the changes within and around the vehicle will happen exponentially, as is common in every industry where ICT enters. And just as in other industries the service will become better at a much lower price. "Fuelled by CASE" (Connected, Automated, Shared and Electric). Inherently safe and clean mobility will lead to a situation where the usage of scarce urban space is the main leftover mobility problem to solve, but new services and other modalities such as bikes will deliver solutions for that as well. And they will put classical public transport under pressure to change and become more flexible much sooner than scenario’s are prepared for.
