Future of Transport - On The Move Report

Auto News - Published on Tue, 19 Nov 2019

Will driverless taxis or flying cars feature in the next 10, 20 or 30 years? A new report looks ahead. The On The Move research also shows that, while many opportunities exist, there’s no single agreed solution to decarbonizing road travel. The BP-commissioned survey by transport consultancy Systra explores what the future of transport might look like, talking to 22 experts and 12,000 consumers across the UK, Germany, Spain and the Netherlands to reveal different attitudes to low carbon transport.

Key findings

Gaps exist between experts’ view of the pace of change and consumer readiness. But, according to the Systra research, both groups recognize the need to develop a range of greener transport choices, rather than focus on any one solution.

The transport industry experts from the private sector, goverment and academia paint a similar vision of the future of transport that blends autonomous vehicles, connected transport, electric cars and shared mobility (ACES).

23% do not think any of the ACES technology experts predict will happen by 2030.

56% predict autonomous taxis will be commonplace by 2050; but only 10% think they would use them.

60% believe drone home delivery will be commonplace by 2050; but only 17% would use them.

Just 11% see themselves driving more efficient petrol/diesel cars.

This report shines a light on consumers’ desire for change but also highlights issues that need to be overcome. The way we should all go about tackling this broad and complicated set of issues is by working together.

Ultimately, On The Move shows that greater collaboration across industry, government, companies and consumers is key to driving change at speed and scale.
