Today, 53% of the world’s population lives in urban areas. By 2050, this proportion will reach 65%, making urban hubs major hotspots for people and vehicles unlike ever before.  As one of the Co-CEOs of Flit Technologies, I believe that we need to change our urban environments and make them sustainable through more efficient mobility services. We are at a turning point in transport. We must change the way people move for the better, allowing efficient, accessible solutions to determine the future of mobility.

 

To do so, we need to re-think the way we transport people and goods. We need to tune in to what people want from transport and develop strategies that meet these needs in dynamic, evolutionary ways. This is a herculean task that no single company can take-on on its own, and it is too important to be handled by a single player. We should keep in mind that the streets belong to everyone and that the transport industry should not be the concern of a few large corporations, but to every single citizen.

Therefore, the Flit Technologies’ approach is fundamentally oriented towards partnerships. This is why we choose to collaborate with all actors of the mobility sector: fleets; cities; operators; and regulators.

Collaboration is essential. At Flit Technologies, we support collaboration through adaptation. We’re using technology and artificial intelligence to usher in a new era for accessible mobility by letting everyone into the driver’s seat, no matter what mode of transport they choose to use.  Perhaps this is the newest development we’re making: allowing the user to be in control of their journeys, while continuing the profitable services of the providers.

Whether through ride-hailing technology, demand responsive buses or new dispatch services, Flit Technologies is at the forefront of burgeoning technological innovation paired with positive social partnerships. As a result, our strategies at Flit Technologies are challenging and changing the face of mobility technology, causing exciting waves in the industry, and ultimately, making our cities smarter.
