VII. Digital technologies increase access and transport efficiency.
Digital technologies outside transport should be used to provide access to jobs and services without the necessity to travel, such as teleworking, digital public services, medical consultations and education. Inside transport, they are to be deployed for greater efficiency through smarter planning and integration, and sharing of capacities and vehicles for people and goods, and for more inclusive services, better information user experiences.
Yet, some applications bear the risk of adverse effects, such as adding vehicle kilometres, increasing energy demand and excluding certain socio-economic groups. The transport and the digital community must ensure that technologies are put to work in support of sustainable and low-carbon mobility systems.
