Focusing from the perspective of the user, Urban Mobility Design investigates how designed mobility and design processes can respond to and drive the emerging social and technological disruptions in the passenger transport sector.

Profound technological advances are changing the mobility expectations of city populations around the world. Transportation design is an under represented research area of urban transportation planning. Urban Mobility Design addresses this gap, providing research-based analysis on current and future needs of urban transportation passengers. The book examines mobility from a uniquely multidisciplinary perspective, involving a variety of innovative design and transportation planning approaches.

Key Features

  • Examines urban mobility from a new perspective
  • Coherently combines current research and practice in transport design, technology, mobility, user behaviour experience, and cultural analysis
  • Utilizes hands-on experiences with transportation manufacturers, transit operators and engineers to bring a practical view on today’s mobility challenges
  • Shows how design approaches to problem solving can influence travel behaviour and improve passenger experience


Urban transportation and planning researchers and graduate students, Urban transportation designers, engineers, and planners, Urban transportation policy- makers in city agencies
