Conversation with Bill Ford on Smart Mobility

Henry Ford sparked a revolution in transportation when he invented the Model T, making car ownership accessible to the masses and transforming society in ways that led to everything from suburbs to Interstate highways. A century later, his great-grandson Bill Ford is leading another seismic shift in personal transportation by advocating for mobility as a human right and calling on industry and governments to rethink how people and goods move on roads that are growing increasingly crowded as the population becomes more urbanized. Smart Mobility solutions are essential for the world's long-term economic and environmental health and will bring new opportunities and challenges.
