Abstract: To understand mobility in the future, we must not look just at changes in transportation, which simply serve as variables in the general equation. Over the past decades, the factor of speed has made mobility democratic owing to relatively lower prices. This trend has met its limits. The "commercial" speeds of various forms of transport are stable or even declining. To imagine mobility in the future, focus must be shifted from speed to the new ways (individual and collective) of managing time, which has become the scarcest resource for people. For this reason, public policy has set as priority "daily forms of mobility", which are subjected to financial, energy and environmental conditions. The aim is no longer to increase speed but to optimize the management of space, the scarcest collective resource.
