This paper discusses work undertaken in the FUTURES programme; a multi-partner, multi-disciplinary UK-based research activity exploring the role of technology in enhancing the sustainability of urban mobility. A key future challenge will be to use technology to support mobility and access whilst managing traffic levels in a sustainable way. The FUTURES consortium brings together leading UK academics in the field of transport and transport-related technologies and applies an innovative methodological approach to develop new understandings regarding the role of technologies in supporting urban sustainability. This paper explains the FUTURES methodology and discusses some of the early findings from the research. For the covering abstract see E134653.
