Mobility Analytics: Planning urban and regional infrastructure
Beyond the horizon: mobility is more than just moving from A to B. It is the product of the infrastructure surrounding it, which limits or enables it.

To ensure that new mobility offers find fertile ground and have a lasting and holistically positive impact on our townscape and countryside, it makes sense not only to look at public transport, but also to look beyond it and to look around the area in question. 

For example by means of the following questions: 

  • Where are the charging stations for e-cars located? 
  • How well developed is the local station? 
  • What are the ideal locations for parcel centres, co-working spaces, car-sharing offers etc.? 

Together with Smart City, we get to the bottom of these questions and, based on a data-based analysis of selected areas, enable the tailor-made planning of new infrastructure measures that go beyond pure mobility solutions, but are linked in their effect and benefits to our claim of more mobility and less traffic for a sustainable future.   

For DB Station, for example, we analysed the status quo of charging points and corresponding infrastructure throughout Germany. The result? Already 1,000 stations have at least one loading point within 300 metres, five percent of which are fast loading points. In total, this means that a total of 3,500 electric cars can be loaded simultaneously in the immediate vicinity of the stations. 

And what problem can we analyse for you?

The Vienna Model

Vienna’s public transport system is among the best in the world. The network is dense and the frequency is tight. It is so well developed that you don’t even need to know the timetable. A total of 2.61 million people are transported from A to B by public transport here every day. The popularity can also be seen in the modal split, because: The public transport users have overtaken the car drivers. Around 38 percent of the distances are covered by public transport, while “only” 27 percent are covered by car. But what makes vienna different from other cities?
