Access this report to gain a better understanding of how mobility and accessibility might change in the U.S. by 2030.


The Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management, with support from the Rockefeller Foundation, has developed a set of four alternative future scenarios (to 2030) using a selection of representative U.S. metropolitan areas to predict the future of U.S. transportation.  Based on a synthesis of current and anticipated technological innovations and expert speculation on their impacts, these scenarios highlight:

  1. likely and possible shifts in the market for mobility, public financing schemes, and the overall structure and function of the U.S. transportation system at a metropolitan level,
  2. the kinds of organizational changes that transportation regulators, funding agencies, and public planning institutions need to begin preparing for now, and
  3. the kinds of skills and practices that might be required of transportation planners in the future.

The overall goal of the project is to provoke transportation policymakers, managers, and planners to begin a national debate about the potential impacts of new and emerging technologies and services; it also seeks to ask how government can capitalize on their vast potential to improve transportation in order to anticipate and mitigate their unintended consequences.
