Urban mobility

Our cities: Laboratories of the future

Anyone traveling around Mexico City by car needs nerves of steel. The average speed here is 6 km/h, and the inhabitants of the city need an average of three hours per day to commute to and from work. Traffic in Germany has not reached such a degree yet. But in this country, drivers still sit in traffic jams for 38 hours per year on average. In cities such as Stuttgart, Karlsruhe or Cologne, it is much longer.

According to a UN report, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050. In 1950 it was only one-third, which means that this will have doubled within one hundred years. The number of megacities with more than ten million inhabitants is also growing. To avert a traffic collapse in these urban centers and prevent pollution and noise from getting out of hand, we need innovative solutions for the mobility of tomorrow.

Intermodal mobility, as it is called, is of particular importance in making transportation in cities more efficient. It links several different types of transportation intelligently. Whether bus, train, bicycle, car sharing vehicle, or your own car – what is important is no longer how you travel, but what the fastest way to your destination is.
