Is urban transportation a hot topic for millennials? Do an internet search on “Millennials driving urban transportation” and you will get over 175K hits! So I would say “yes”! But urban transportation is becoming popular with more just millennials, it’s popular with anyone who has decided to take public transportation to avoid traffic congestion, especially in the world’s largest cities.
In addition, in a study by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) and referenced in this “Millennial Generation Desires Multi-Modal Transportation System” article, 70% of millennials are taking mulitple modes of transportation several times or more a week. Having a transit infrastructure with multiple modes of transportation enables inner-city businesses to employ a workforce and drive city revenues to keep pace with the population growth.
Transit organizations are tasked with delivering transportation to their passengers who are focused on reducing carbon footprints as well as traffic congestion. Major cities across the world are planning for and implementing enterprise asset management solutions to deliver safe, affordable and reliable multi-modal transportation systems to stay competitive.
