London's transport regulator looks to startups to help fix urban mobility

London's transport regulator, TfL has announced a partnership with Bosch for its forthcoming co-working space in Shoreditch. The aim of the collaborative project is to share data and expertise, including by tapping into London's startup ecosystem, to land on new ideas for tackling urban mobility issues -- from traffic jams to awful air quality. Transport issues are especially pressing for the city as London's population is forecast to reach a staggering 10.8 million by 2041 -- which would mean around six million additional trips being generated per day.
