In this concluding chapter, we summarize the three key insights drawn from the different contributions of this book. We then reflect on our notion of smart transport by highlighting that, although it might be a necessary condition, it might unfortunately not be sufficient to go toward the post-car system. Thus, we propose leads for more research to be conducted in order to ensure that smart mobility solutions are not only “smart,” but are also aligned with a sustainability paradigm. In particular, we highlight the need to conduct empirical research on the impacts of existing smart mobility solutions so as to eventually better understand if those are able to keep their promises in terms of sustainability, which should ultimately enable researchers to establish the missing link between the governance of smart transportation systems and the impacts of such governance approaches on the overall performance of transportation systems.
