In times of Netflix, Spotify and Co. almost everything is shared instead of owned. It’s not surprising that this trend is not only changing our consumer behaviour but can also influence our mobility habits. Current developments show that, despite the possibility of accompanied driving from the age of 17, young people get their driving license later: In 2012, 4.6 million car driving licences were still being issued, compared with over ten percent fewer in 2017.
We are starting this year as we finished the last one: with a special focus on sustainability.
And this can best be achieved together. So at the beginning of the year and as a reminder for all of us, we have put together a few proven tips for more sustainability.
On the last metres 2019 spoils us once again with a very special sense of achievement! With ioki Hamburg, yesterday we officially won the German Mobility Award given by the Federal Initiative “Land der Ideen” and the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI).
Next stop: Future. Under this premise, the “Stadt in Bewegung” initiative, which is broadly based with Signify, Cisco Meraki, DB Regio Bus, ioki, Cleverciti and avodaq, is working on tailor-made solutions for tomorrow’s cities and municipalities.
What will mobility look like in the future? What can demand responsive transport do for cities and rural areas? What insights can be derived from a data-based mobility analysis?
“To receive more by sharing than to give” – Not only with this motto the current campaign “Das ist grün” of Deutsche Bahn hits the nerve of the time. But what does this slogan actually mean? How can a general added value be created through individual renunciation? And is all this really a real deprivation or is it not the exact opposite?
The last quarter of the year has begun and we are already approaching the end of 2019 in large steps. Time for us to take a look into the future. How will mobility change in the near future? What trends will we experience? And what measures can we derive from this today?
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. Even though the trend shifts away from the car as a status symbol and towards a green lifestyle and a footprint that is as ecological as possible, the car is still the most popular means of transport among Germans.
How to mobilise employees – this question was the core issue of our first ioki Mobility Network Business Club.
More powerful technology, more innovative solutions, more digital helpers: We are on the right track towards the working environment of the future. Despite all this progress, however, there are still issues and challenges that still bother us. Because once you put your smartphone aside and lift your eyes off your laptop for a second, you have to realize: Unfortunately, we still can’t beam ourselves.
In Germany, up to 125 kilometres of rail are to be modernized by 2025. During the modernization, passengers will have to switch from rail to rail replacement services. This is also the case for passengers on the Stuttgart S-Bahn, while the main line there is being modernized this summer. Nevertheless, this rail replacement service is different, because: On weekends and weekend nights, it is main line offline – S-Bahn On-Demand online.
