Making passenger and freight transport by rail, road, water or air economically and ecologically viable for the future.
Developing a master plan for sustainable, low-emission mobility that achieves a significant reduction of NO2 pollution in cities through new transport services, intermodality and the increasing use of two-wheelers is a challenging task.
Many municipalities view holistic transport and mobility planning as a continuous improvement process, in which the strengthening of local public transport and its expansion as a comprehensive, low-threshold system plays a central role. A second focal area is the implementation of digital traffic guidance systems for the environmentally and climate-friendly control of all inner-city traffic, giving priority to local public transport and low-emission vehicles.
To improve the sustainable access of outlying districts to the city centre, mobility alternatives that lead to a shift away from individual passenger cars must be created. The use of non-motorised individual transportation will become increasingly significant. This should be encouraged. In addition to bicycles, pedelecs are particularly important from a strategic point of view. In many cities, the existing infrastructure is designed to meet the outdated needs of the past, when individual motorised transport was a matter of prestige. Today's requirements are fundamentally different, and are therefore not being met in most cases.
We possess extensive know-how in optimising the operational excellence of local public transport and regional transport organisations, whether rail or road-based.
Due to the great social significance of local public transport, defining a product and pricing strategy is a particularly delicate task. Here, our experts cooperate closely with all stakeholders to create innovative and affordable solutions.
We collaborate with you to develop multimodal operating models, and optimise business processes in sales, operations, fleet management and workshops for fixed routes and shared taxi concepts. Are you missing an area or a conceptual approach where you see potential for yourself? We are happy to take up these topics and develop individual models.
Having to change from one means of transport to another has so far been a deterrent to the use of local public transport. Travelling by car allows you to reach your destination without having to change. The attractiveness of local public transport can be improved by increasing the frequency of the service and through synchronised inter and multi-modality.
The basic principles of sustainable urban, regional and transport development are well known: ensuring availability, equitable access to transport, parity of living conditions, health and safety, emission reductions, cost shares. In our consulting projects, we develop guiding principles for transport development plans
