Today, one only has to step out onto a New York street or fly over LA’s tangled highways to see the problems: auto-clogged roads, low-lying vehicle-fume smog, and barely-moving lines of single drivers sitting in multi-passenger cars. Some (mistakenly) cast luxurious self-driving cars as a means to turn the frustrations of a daily commute into a valuable period of relaxation or productivity. In this piece, I explain why that strategy won’t just be ineffective and worsen our commutes, but will also ultimately compel consumers to embrace the very transport philosophy that made us traffic-beleaguered in the first place. I also make a case for why using self-driving cars as public transport can be used as a means to eradicate driving dependence in the long term.

New mobility concepts are rapidly implemented at a large scale in urban envrionments without any governmental intervention. This reflects the situation that technology is ready for commercial use, however policies and infrastructure are not yet in place to accomdate the new technologies. This has already caused huge drawbacks for both citizens and companies. Therefore, cities need to develop instruments to steer the implementaton from the private sector in such a way that public needs are better served. This article outlines the transnational collaborative approach that Smart Cities adopt to test state-of-the-art instruments to foster a valuable public-private collaboration.
