MOBILITY FOR THE 21ST CENTURY. A BLUEPRINT FOR THE FUTURE
The American Public Transit Association (APTA) created the Task Force on Mobility in the 21st Century (M21) to explore both positive opportunities and dangers ahead when expanding mobility options in the 21st century and creating more livable communities and sustainable patterns of development. The M21 Task Force developed two tools for thinking systematically about how transportation and urban development could evolve. The first tool is a set of four scenarios of how the future might turn out by 2050; the second tool is a process of vision development that led to a vision statement which describes the "preferred future" of Task Force members. This report sets out the M21 Task Force's analysis of problems of urban development, its four scenarios of how today's problems and possibilities could unfold in the future, and its vision of mobility and urban development in the 21st century.
