What is … the difference between AST and ALT?

The abbreviation AST in German means “Anruf-Sammel-Taxi”, in English “call-collective-taxi” and ALT means “Anruf-Linien-Taxi” – call-line-taxi.

Do we still need private cars?

Every car driver knows: Driving a car in a busy city is definitely not the best idea. Traffic is increasing more and more – traffic jams, environmental pollution and parking problems are the result.
