2nd TTPU Seminar ~ Approaches to Develop New Sustainable Mobility Solutions ~ February 15, 2021

TTPU

Introduction:

New Mobility Service with cutting-edge technology helps to solve transportation challenges in regions. It even has the potential to change people’s lifestyle and city-making. In Japan, test cases have progressed and ideas on new mobility services has appeared. The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 has also shifted people’s values and lifestyle. Expectation towards new mobility services has risen with the change of daily movement and activities.

Recognizing the importance of new mobility services as a research topic,  Transportation and Tourism Policy Research Unit (TTPU) at the Graduate School of Public Policy (GraSPP), University of Tokyo hosted the 1st TTPU seminar titled ‘Realizing New Mobility Services -Examining Japanese MaaS from user’s perspective’ in February 2020, and discussed the role and expectations of the new mobility services.

 Japan Transport and Tourism Research Institute (JTTRI), which is in partnership with TTPU, has also been addressing this research topic on new mobility service, with Prof. ISHIDA Haruo of Tsukuba University (also a board member of JTTRI) as the head of a research committee.

Considering the current socio-economic situation and the progress in mobility services, the 2nd TTPU seminar will address how to sustainably adopt the new mobility services in real-life. The seminar will welcome leading advocates in this field, policy makers and business leaders. The seminar program is established based on the research at JTTRI.
