Project Four - Smart, Shared and Sustainable Mobility

The Commission was clear that for the city to be successful in the future, everyone who lives, works, studies or does business here must be able to move freely and on demand, and not be reliant on access to a private car. The Smart, Shared, Sustainable Mobility project reflects the growing move towards ‘mobility as a service’ and the use of autonomous and electric vehicles, and the opportunities that these trends could create for Milton Keynes. This project is aligned with the preparation of a new Mobility Strategy to support Plan:MK, which will replace the existing Local Transport Plan 3. It also links with the Strategy for 2050, to reflect how different forms of transport will change the way the city works and how land will be used. For example, if vehicles dropping workers off at offices or the station in CMK in the morning can drive themselves off be used for other journeys throughout the day, what opportunities could that create for the land currently used for car parking in the city centre? Through this project, we are exploring issues such as this, and how we can put in place mechanisms and policies that mean we can take advantage of the opportunities that new technologies can bring.


On 10 October 2017, the MK Futures 2050 Connectors group held a meeting dedicated to this project. You can find some resources from this meeting below.

The meeting focussed on how transport could be used to reduce inequality in Milton Keynes and what it would look like to best serve our communities in the future.
