Avons-nous vraiment encore besoin d’une voiture particulière ? À quoi ressemblera notre paysage urbain dans 20 ans ? Quels sont les besoins des régions rurales ? Qui sont les têtes pensantes qui réfléchissent à la mobilité et comment ? Et qu’est-ce que les services à la demande et les analyses de mobilité ont à voir avec tout ça ? Des questions que nous nous posons tous au quotidien dans notre travail et pour lesquelles nous devrions – au moins de temps en temps – noter nos réponses et nos réflexions. Pour vous, pour nous, pour des élans passionnants, pour plus de mobilité et moins de trafic.
Analyses de mobilité | Blog FR | Mobilité à la demande | Nicht kategorisiert/ 5. Août./ What’s green? The Deutsche BahnSustainability journey in full swing Why we need to improve, especially in mobility matters, is obvious. The use of motorised private transport is causing noise and air pollution. The advantages of public transport are also clear. More people in a vehicle and fewer sealed surfaces mean lower emissions of pollutants. As Dr. Richard Lutz, Chairman of the DB Management Board, has already correctly stated, Germany and Europe can only achieve their climate targets with a green, strong rail system. But what exactly is DB doing to leave our planet worth living on for the next generation? The DB sustainability journey is already in full swing. By the end of 2020, for example, more than 95 percent of the raw materials used will be recycled. However, this is not the only goal that is within reach....
Almost 16 million people live in rural regions throughout Germany. For them it is often a difficult task to get from A to B by public transport. After all, rural regions are at the back of the queue when it comes to expanding public transport. But why is the accessibility of these regions so poor and public transport hardly an alternative? How can it be guaranteed that people living in rural areas can also be mobile in a climate-friendly and cost-effective way?

Don’t worry, in this article we will not refresh the basics of business studies again. Rather, we would like to examine the extent to which the theory, which may already be somewhat dusty but is still valid and authoritative, can be combined with our daily practice, the transformation of public transport.
Silke Höhl is a PhD student at the Research Lab for Urban Transport (ReLUT) at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences. The construction and industrial engineer won the « Best Idea 2019 » competition at the Allianz Pro Schiene Innovation Award 2019. Her concept: an innovative parcel delivery service. Hereby, the idea is not to create a new transport infrastructure, but to use public transport that is already well developed in the cities. The idea: underground and tramways take care of transporting the parcels to the city centres and a load wheel takes care of the last few kilometres to the front door.
Mobility is often still a resource-intensive undertaking – in every respect: Too many cars on the road cause a high level of environmental pollution, loosely set timetables mean an immense loss of time and excessively large containers and empty runs – especially in rural areas and at off-peak times – take their financial toll.
Better air, blue skies and significantly fewer vehicles on the roads: The Corona crisis has given our planet a little well-earned rest. This is because of the positive effects in terms of lower CO2 emissions during the pandemic. A recent study shows that the restrictions on public life have also reduced global emission numbers drastically.
