Working with RATP, the Autonomous Transit Authority of Paris, the MIT Mobile Experience Lab organized an idea-generating workshop to explore how the way people move within the city changes with the development of transportation systems, information, and communication technologies.

The Smart Mobility workshop focused primarily on the urban bus line as part of a larger transportation ecosystem consisting of rail, metro, bus, car, bike and walking. Re-defining one element of the system requires consideration of the complex relationships between the components. With these considerations in mind, workshop participants envisioned a number of concepts for the role of a bus line in the future.
