Smart mobility includes automation, shared mobility services and other new forms of mobility made possible by digital technologies. This book argues that smart mobility will only be developed in a desired direction and fulfil global sustainability goals if it is steered in that direction. There is a vast body of literature on public policy and policy instruments, and there are many different conceptualisations and categorisations. Applying an open and broad approach, whereby a variety of policy instruments that are used to govern smart mobility are introduced and discussed, this book is ideal for both professionals and researchers. The book is organised into three parts: the first part explores why there is a need for policy instruments in relation to smart mobility, the second part examines how policy instruments are chosen and developed, and the third part explores what policy instruments are doing and what smart mobility is doing to them. Of the policy instruments used today, many focus on producing knowledge for governments and thereby making smart mobility governable. Because of the difficulties with implementing policy instruments that make the transport sector more sustainable, the book concludes by discussing in which ways citizen deliberation can breathe new life into the debate.

Alexander Paulsson is a lecturer at Lund University School of Economics and Management and a researcher at the Swedish Knowledge Centre for Public Transport (K2). He is currently doing research on the governance of new forms of mobility and the marketization of public transport. Alexander’s research interests are broadly within the areas of organization studies, science and technology studies as well as ecological economics. 

Claus Hedegaard Sørensen is research leader at the Swedish Knowledge Centre for Public Transport (K2) and senior researcher at the Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI). Claus is doing research on transport governance, and his research mostly has focused on environmental policy integration in transport; national transport planning; organisation and collaboration within public transport; as well as the use and role of knowledge in transport policy making. The last couple of years he mostly has researched and published on governance of smart mobility. Thus, he has led and been involved in more research projects within that field.
