Guidehouse Insights Explores Opportunities for Municipal Transportation Operating Systems

MTOS can provide cities with tools to monitor mobility services and help model future system upgrades and new transportation policies

BOULDER, Col., September 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — A new report from Guidehouse Insights explores how municipal transportation operating systems (MTOS) can manage and optimize urban mobility.

Cities are continually responding to urban transport challenges such as increasing levels of travel demand and the complex management of many public and private transport modes. The growing demand for passenger transport and urban deliveries increases congestion and has a significant impact on air quality, safety and quality of life. According to a new report from Guidehouse Insights, the growing number of urban mobility modes, such as shared micromobility, and the anticipated arrival of highly automated vehicles are increasing complexity and driving the need for real-time data to effectively manage transport systems. transportation.

“As cities take steps to improve urban mobility, travelers demand a reliable and efficient transportation system that provides accurate travel information,” says Sagie Evbenata, senior research analyst at Guidehouse Insights. “An MTOS could be a valuable instrument for smart cities, providing them with the tools to monitor and optimize mobility services and help model future system upgrades and new transportation policies.”

Stakeholders in the mobility ecosystem, including automakers, map data companies and technology companies, are developing solutions to address urban mobility challenges and testing them in cities around the world. These systems could be key components of an MTOS to manage and optimize future urban mobility. In addition to providing better transportation service to customers, an MTOS could provide cities with the tools to monitor mobility services and help model future system upgrades and new transportation policies, according to the report.

The report, Cities should now assess the benefits of municipal transport operating systems, examines the increasing pressures on cities to provide efficient, safe and sustainable mobility systems and examines how an MTOS could provide an effective solution. It showcases some of the notable pilot projects in various cities that are developing and demonstrating the benefits of these technologies. Recommendations are provided on how key stakeholders can benefit from the development of MTOS and bring maximum value to cities.
