We live in a changing world, and testing new and emerging technology is vital to forecast how people will travel around the city for years to come.

Our submission to the Department for Transport’s Future Mobility Zones fund will enable us to trial new and exciting developments in transport including; new vehicles, smart ticketing, data driven insights and the sharing economy to help future-proof travel in the city.

Our Future Mobility City programme continues our Transforming Cities Fund schemes, knitting them together to pilot the delivery of innovative approaches to enhancing mobility. This builds on our strong reputation as a national leader for integrated transport planning and delivery, and our position at the forefront of electric mobility. The FMZ covers the Derby and Nottingham conurbations and growth areas including the proposed HS2 East Midlands Hub Station, and East Midlands Airport and East Midlands Gateway employment zones.

The bid seeks to integrate information and payment options to support uptake of new and existing mobility services.

The bid was submitted to the Department for Transport on Monday 30 September 2019, we expect to hear the result of this bid later this autumn.
