Policy, strategy & regulation

Disruptive technology is causing major shifts in the way that mobility is planned and delivered in our cities and towns. The speed of change for new technologies, business models and the need for carbon reduction means that public policy, strategy and regulation is increasingly in need of review, modernization and reform.

Through engagement, research and analysis, we are experienced in developing comprehensive evidence bases to understand the impacts, both positive and negative of these changes, be it from decarbonization to safety to economic growth, to help develop and inform new or existing policies, strategies and regulations.

Our team has experience working on a wide range of disruptive transportation technologies. Our experience with both public and private sector clients provides a deep level of insight into the opportunities and pressures faced, and helps to provide a balanced view to inform and develop policies, strategies and regulations. Our recent work includes reviews of the taxi and ridehailing industries, regulatory recommendations for adopting e-scooters, on-demand transit and microtransit, and autonomous vehicle services.

How we can help you

We work with cities, transportation and transit agencies, universities and private industry to help shape policies, strategies and regulation to respond to fast-changing business models and carbon reduction targets. We can also help businesses and business groups to shape policy and strategy to consider new opportunities and changes to existing services.
