Authorities face several challenges when it comes to effectively integrating emerging mobility services and technologies into spatial and transport plans to improve citizen’s wellbeing and achieve environmental green goals. Development of new generation of harmonised spatial and multimodal transport planning tools, which capture the dynamics of the changing transport sector and land use, is required. To lead a sustainable transition, the importance of vertical integration of this new generation of tools is foreseen, going from strategic, through tactical and operational level.
