Berlin will soon have one app to integrate mobility services


Berlin will soon have a single app to bring together various transport services within the city, thus taking an important step towards the provision of mobility as a service (MaaS). 

Berlin is already home to a number of sustainable transport projects, many of which aim to deliver its ambitious cycling development goals. Berlin will soon add another aspect to its innovative sustainable transport portfolio: the German capital will see the full integration of public and private mobility services united in a single MaaS application.

Micro depots in Meisengasse, Frankfurt am Main


With urban freight deliveries becoming more common due to a rapid increase in e-commerce, cities are looking for new ways to tackle increased congestion and pollution from increased numbers of light commercial vehicles (LCVs). One unusual approach that has been 'delivering' significant results is the micro-logistics approach to urban freight. The City of Frankfurt am Main, UPS, partners IHK Frankfurt am Main and House of Logistics and Mobility (HOLM) GmbH have been experimenting with bicycles in micro-logistics.

Growing popularity for bus, bike and Bahn


How has mobility changed in Germany? The German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure studied almost a million journeys made in 2017 by over 156,000 households.

The study found that Germans travel slightly less on an average day compared to 2008, with a drop from 90% to 85%. however, the number of kilometres travelled per journey increased slightly.

The car remains the dominant and popular mode of transport, while bike, bus and train are becoming more popular. The steady growth of individual motorised traffic in the last decades is stagnating.
