The concept of the smart city, that will define societies of the near future, is
founded among others on creating a seamless symbiotic relationship between
transport provision and land use planning. However, a forthcoming mobility
paradigm that will be established on automated, connected, shared and digitised
transport set to revolutionise travel experiences and travel behaviour patterns
may be a game-changer that will redefine this relationship and change the way
mobility links to land use planning for decades to come. This will also add new
dimensions to Transit Oriented Development (TOD).

This is a conceptual paper looking at how to embrace new technologies such as
Connected and Autonomous Vehicles and Mobility-as-a-Service (and also
Internet of Things and Travel Guidance Apps) that could dramatically alter the
landscape and sustainability of cities and create positive change.
