Mobility Planet podcast: The new mobility culture clash


New month - new episode. Listen to our newest episode on new mobility culture clash. In this podcast, our colleague Bonnie Fenton had a wide-ranging discussion with three GECKO stakeholders about new mobility culture clash by addressing some of the tensions between the private and the public sector.

It’s the public sector’s responsibility to make our cities more attractive and liveable while the private sector has a product or service to sell and needs to make a profit on it. In the context of the GECKO project, our colleague Bonnie Fenton chatted with three GECKO stakeholders about – among other things – self-driving vehicles, hyperloop, e-scooters, ride hailing and the “Netflix of mobility”. Her conversation partners were:

- Thomas Geier is a researcher and project manager with the association of European Metropolitan Transport Authorities working at the transport authority of Vienna.

- Michael Glotz-Richter is a senior project manager for the City of Bremen who has worked on topics ranging from walking and cycling to car sharing to the integration of automated vehicles.

- Renata Lajas is a senior consultant at Arup in the Digital Transport Services team and focuses on intelligent mobility, Mobility as a Service and public policy.

This is number four is a series of four podcasts looking at various aspects of the regulation of new mobility. The first three GECKO podcasts can be found here and on any other common podcasting platform including Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher and Overcast.
