The combination of economic and demographic growth is likely to encourage more and more people to live in cities.

The world’s population is expected to reach more than 9 billion inhabitants by 2050, of which nearly 70% will live in urban zones.

This trend towards urbanisation can be observed particularly in China, India and the developing countries of Africa and Latin America.

In mature countries, populations will be encouraged to leave behind individual forms of transport, such as the car, in favour of the metro, the tram and the suburban trains – a development supported by the active promotion of  forms of public transport which will be cheaper, sustainable and environmentally friendly.
