Government Office for Science
The Government Office for Science developed the Future of Mobility project in consultation with colleagues from across government. Its purposes are to inform a national long-term approach to mobility, to provide evidence of current trends, and to guide strategic thinking for the future.
This report looks in detail at the movement of people and goods by all means, across the whole domestic UK transport system. It covers the history of the system and key external trends, and looks in depth at users, freight, logistics and governance. It concludes by summarising insights from the analyses and highlighting priority issues looking towards 2040. Overall, it synthesises the evidence we gathered, which includes our commissioned evidence reviews (listed after references), roundtables with experts, and insights obtained from industry and academia.
