What could urban public transport look like in the year 2045?  Our future urban transport systems are likely to be influenced by different societal changes (including responding to climate change and an ageing population), and technological changes (including the growth of the sharing economy and the use of big data).  This article explores four possible scenarios along two axes; automation and density.  In the high automation, high density quadrant is a scenario called ‘shared shuttles’.  This scenario is based on interconnected and shared mobility system.  At the same time, owning and running a private car is much less popular than it is today.
