Seoul envisioning future of flying taxis, ride-sharing as public transport


south korea is widely known for its
convenient and well-connected public transportation but now seoul is going to
work to to go to that extra mile by adding the latest digital technologies
and mobility gadgets into that very mix our ocean has more sold is aiming to
make public transportation smarter more fluid and much more personal the city
government held an exhibition over the weekend illustrating a future where
there is freedom of mobility it’s the future where we’re no longer bound by
the current methods of transportation but are instead moving freely and
conveniently throughout the city using the latest mobility gadgets and devices
all under one integrated system host transport authorities are developing a
system based on the concepts of mobility as a service which would allow people to
transit between public bikes and car sharing services for instance on top of
the usual buses and subway rides instead of using various apps and paying for
different services multiple times your entire trip would be covered with the
swipe of a card or even facial recognition which could become available
in the near future in the past expanding public transport meant increasing
physical infrastructure but in the age of the fourth Industrial Revolution our
policies are aimed to incorporate software and the Internet of Things to
add rental scooters bicycles and car sharing into a city transport solution
companies like uber are looking above ground level
uber elevates plans to launch its flying taxi service in 2023 across three US
cities so wouldn’t be just a flight from point A to point B but this would rather
be a flight or a transportation journey where you take either a scooter or a
bike or a car you get to that sky port you take your flight and then there’s
that final destination so we’re really looking at this from a holistic point of
view for such revolutionary mobility services to also take off in Korea so
city is working with IT firms and researchers to test new mobility devices
such as driverless buses for true freedom of mobile
we need to have a diverse range of platforms that offer all sorts of
software and services developed by private firms not just as a part of
public transportation with the so many changes taking place in the mobility
sector we hope to share these trends with our citizens and pursue policies to
help them enjoy these developments mayor Park won-soon on Friday said Seoul aims
to build a mobility ecosystem to connect taxis bikes and car sharing and even
aerial services through the latest digital technologies and big data was
