In 2050, 75 % of the global population will live in cities and the planet will have 37 megacities, each with a population of more than 10 million inhabitants. Transportation needs, for business or pleasure, are intensifying due to the fast growth of urban areas. This context and the development of digital technology highlight the need to take a fresh look at traditional forms of transportation and the ways in which to respond to new requirements.
