Mobility Planet

Rupprecht Consult
In the final episode of the GECKO project, we're talking about the possible conflicts between sectors in the context of regulating new mobility, especially the private and the public sector.
You’re listening to the third in a series of four podcasts looking at various aspects of data coming with 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. All of our discussion partners are members of the project’s international stakeholder group.  

They’ve been sharing with us their hands-on experience with self-driving vehicles, hyperloop, e-scooters, ride hailing and the “Netflix of mobility” – but we’ll let our guests tell you more about that in this episode. At the end, it comes down to this: if we need collaboration between the private and the public sector to deliver new mobility services, how do we reconcile the city wanting to improve the urban atmosphere and the private sector wanting to sell its cool new technology? Can the two work together? 

For this discussion, we’ve brought together a group of three expert practitioners. Thomas Geier is a researcher and project manager with the association of European Metropolitan Transport Authorities, and also currently with the transport authority of Vienna, where he’s a project manager for new mobility services.

Michael Glotz-Richter is a senior project manager for the City of Bremen. He’s worked on topics ranging from walking and cycling to car sharing to the integration of automated vehicles.

Renata Lajas is an Urban Planner & Transport Engineer with experience in research as well as the public and private sectors. She currently works as a Senior Consultant at Arup
