Mark Stout has more than 10 years’ experience in urban mobility and urban development research, planning, and design. He has operated in government and consulting environments, and understands the planning and design process of multimodal streets/mobility infrastructure for cities plus the relationship with land use planning.

Mark has performed many different types of projects in infrastructure planning, including but not limited to statutory land use policy planning, multimodal corridor planning studies, transportation impact assessments, and cycling facility design for all ages and abilities, etc.

In his work at CESAR, Mark is investigating the future of urban mobility, including how the convergence of shared, electric, autonomous, and connected vehicles (i.e. Mobility as a Service or MaaS) could be directed to put Canada on a pathway to a low-carbon economy and address other problems and opportunities in the personal mobility sector. He is currently focused on how a large-scale implementation of MaaS (at the expense of the high-percentage ownership of personally owned vehicles) would change/reduce demand for parking in Alberta and Canada and the resulting implications on the real estate sector.

Mark has a Master in Environmental Studies in Urban Planning from York University and a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Queen’s University. He is a Registered Professional Planner (RPP) and Professional Engineer in Alberta.
