What a waste
of space

In a not so distance future cities might not have to deal with parking issues anymore. Self-driving cars are about to drive through our cities. Imagine all cars are shared and autonomous. You can call for any car and it will bring you wherever you want.

Since these cars don't need to park anymore, lots of space could be freed up in cities around the world. The more efficient use of cars will allow less cars on the road and even less parking, just like illustrated here.

Demand
better mobility

You can change how your city looks by your everyday transportation decisions. Citizen demand, urban policy and planning combined with innovative design and services can transform how you get from A to B. It is our goal to make urban mobility smarter. With this project the moovel lab contributes in understanding and analyzing mobility infrastructure around the globe.

Don't be stuck in traffic. Be part of the change!

About

What the Street!? was derived out of the question “How do new and old mobility concepts change our cities?”. It was raised by Michael Szell and Stephan Bogner during their residency at moovel lab. With support of the lab team they set out to wrangle data of cities around the world to develop and design this unique Mobility Space Report.

What the Street!? was made out of open-source software and resources. Thanks to the OpenStreetMap contributors and many other pieces we put together the puzzle of urban mobility space seen above.
