In our Mobility Allstars e.V. position paper, we set out the target images we assume for each mode of transport – supported by the striving for an overall better quality of life for people and increased competitiveness of the locations. The current state of research and science is taken into account as well as discussions with representatives from business and politics. Nevertheless, it is clear that this target image calls for ongoing discussions and will therefore develop over time.
Below you can read our six key demands. You can find the entire position paper here. Please note that the document is written in German.
Our six demands
Clear guiding principles
It is seldom possible for people to understand in which direction the mobility of cities or rural districts should develop. We demand a short-term and decisive development of target images. These target images must be implemented intelligently.
Politicians must initiate changes in order to ultimately create the framework for a successful mobility transition. We ask managers to have the courage to try new things and to show patience in the process. The mobility turnaround will not succeed with only short-term prospects of success.
Means of transport compete with each other. You can’t please everyone. It is important to find a good balance between the modes of transport. We also ask to discuss a re-prioritization of the means of transport.
We demand more sensitivity for social inclusion and a critical questioning of new mobility offers and their social scope. It is imperative that no one is excluded from the mobility transition.
New technologies and combined offers
New technologies play a key role in the mobility transition. These must be tried out with the customer in a practical manner. In addition, a sustainable, attractive mobility offer will also benefit significantly from the combination of different offers.
A change in mobility will only be successful if it is accompanied by a change in behavior. This also includes a critical assessment of the traffic events. It must be described how the use of means of transport that is “sub-optimal” from a societal perspective can be successively reduced.
