Mobility between effectiveness and efficiency

Perspectives from Silke Höhl
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.

Not only in Germany is the mobility of the future a central topic which is constantly gaining knowledge and alternative solutions. Looking over to our neighbours such as Sweden or the Netherlands shows that new mobility concepts are developing and establishing themselves in different ways in Europe.
Mobility Analytics: Planning new mobility offers
Time for New Mobility: What would the best measures be worth without concrete implementation? Not much, exactly! And that’s why a mobility analysis is not only about evaluating the current situation and developing a catalogue of measures, but also and above all, in a very practical way, about planning the new mobility offers in line with the existing system.
