Innovative urban mobility concepts

The transport sector is responsible for a large share of air pollution and CO2 emissions. Above all, individual motorization requires enormous space which could be used more efficiently by other modes of transport. This harms not only the environment but also the citizens’ well-being. Conventional public transport cannot substitute our entire mobility demand and will therefore not be able to reduce motorization to the amount needed to achieve climate aims. New concepts, which integrate bike and (free-floating) car sharing into public transport, make conventional public transport more attractive and flexible. So it is assumed that motorized individual transport shifts to ecomobility. Integrated public transport allows modern mobility requirements to be satisfied, while at the same time reducing traffic-related emissions and environmental damage in urban areas. The study identifies new mobility concepts and reviews the approaches to integrate car and bike sharing into public transport, considering for example operational, technical or infrastructural linkage.
