Challenge / Goal
The newly developed Domagkpark district will soon be home to more than 4,000 residents, schools, educational and other kinds of facilities. With the steep growth in population and traffic, the objective within this district is to move away from the ‘one parking spot per household regulation’ to providing attractive and sustainable mobility alternatives at so-called mobility stations.
Mobility stations combine and provide a number of mobility services to ensure that suitable means of transport are available for any purpose at any time. This provides real alternatives to private car ownership. Combining various services in one location, the city can tackle the challenges of limited space and different mobility needs. The goal is to ensure a better quality of life and mobility without the need for car ownership.
Mobility stations, as part of traffic and mobility planning, are a new concept. They enable cost-effective and flexible access to different modes of transport. In the new housing area of Domagkpark and Parkstadt Schwabing, several mobility stations are established. Carsharing, e-scooters, and various types of rental bikes from Munich-based providers, like Car2go, DriveNow, Emmy, MVG Rad, OPLY and STATTAUTO, are available at these mobility stations. The services are supplemented by charging stations for electromobility. This measure combines these shared mobility services with access to public transport services, like trams and buses. New road traffic signs and markings have been introduced in the district, which will apply to all mobility stations in Munich in future.
All relevant shared mobility providers in Munich are integrated as operational partners. In the residential areas, the local district committee and the planning authorities are involved in the planning and implementation process.
