#02 How much do we need to regulate new mobility?

2021-06-01 33 min

In our first episode, we discussed the difficulties that decision makers encounter when trying to regulate new mobility. In this episode, we’re talking about how much regulation is actually needed. Who’s responsible for setting the rules? What kind of rules should they be? To what extent can we let the market set its own rules? And what about enforcing the rules? Do we need the “new mobility police”? 

You’re listening to the second in a series of four podcasts looking at various aspects of regulating new mobility. The four episodes have been produced within the context of a European project called GECKO, which looks at effectively regulating new mobility without stifling the creative ideas behind it.

For this discussion, we’ve brought together a tri-continental group to discuss how and how much to regulate new mobility. All our discussion partners are members of the project’s international stakeholder group.

We have Lewis Chen, who works on Business Development and Innovating Shared and Autonomous Mobility for Car Club in Singapore. He was one of the key early developers of car sharing in Asia.

We have Gavin Miller from the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency in the UK, where he’s an Enforcement Policy Specialist.

And we have Carol Schweiger in the US. She’s the president of Schweiger Consulting and has expertise in (among other things) technology strategies for public agencies, public transport technology, and traveller systems information.
