Transport concepts for the city of tomorrow

The city of today offers many advantages to its inhabitants: opportunities of employment are higher, the access to health and education as well as to entertainment, culture and art is mostly better than in rural areas. Also businesses move to the city to get access to the global network of production, knowledge and qualified workers. This success, however, puts pressure on urban infrastructure and transportation. In 2017 car drivers in Hamburg spent an average of 44 hours in traffic jams. Transportation is the second biggest emitter of greenhouse gases. In the city of tomorrow activities of production, leisure and living will further overlap in limited urban space. Mobility and transportation are the condition to meet the new versatile needs in the future.
