. . . The principles, launched in 2017, are designed to guide urban decision-makers and stakeholders toward the best mobility outcomes for all, and are supported by a founding coalition of eight global sustainability groups including C40 cities, Transportation for America, and the Shared-Use Mobility Center, and other signatories such as Uber, Lyft, Via, and ZipCar. The Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities include ten commitments to ensure sustainable, efficient, and collaborative mobility development on a global scale:
  • We plan our cities and their mobility together.

    We prioritize people over vehicles.

    We support the shared and efficient use of vehicles, lanes, curbs, and land.

    We engage with stakeholders.

    We promote equity.

    We lead the transition towards a zero-emission future and renewable energy.

    We support fair user fees across all modes.

    We aim for public benefits via open data.

    We work towards integration and seamless connectivity.

    We support that autonomous vehicle in dense urban areas should be operated only in shared fleets.
A “livable” city is one that attracts citizens to live and work there, which includes efficient and connected multi-modal solutions (“Smart Mobility”) to facilitate population growth and movement. . . .

The 'best' is the enemy of 'good enough'. Copper shot, not Silver bullets.
