Asia’s rapidly growing cities are gearing up to meet increasing mobility needs while simultaneously striving to achieve sustainability goals. A number of new innovations are being introduced in the form of experiments aiming to change the systems and rule-sets that currently dominate the provision of mobility services in Asian cities. This chapter analyses selected cases of mobility experiments in India and Thailand and explores the strategies that the niche actors deploy to navigate the challenges posed by incumbent socio-technical regimes. The chapter concludes that whilst niche actors tried to stretch-and-transform technological, infrastructural and cultural dimensions of regimes, they opted to fit-and-conform with public policy and political power dimensions.
