Challenge / Goal
The development of urban mobility solutions is a must for the city of the future. One possible way to meet the challenges is to promote public transport by innovative mobility offers, including e-mobility solutions. An attractive offer can lead to citizens not using their private cars in the city. For this to happen, one main objective is the close cooperation of public transport providers and the suppliers of mobility stations in order to make the experience of changing from one means of transport to another seamless for the user. One advantage of Munich in this context is that the public transport provider MVG is also one of the main suppliers of mobility offers for the stations. However, even if this is not the case, the goal must always be to provide integrated solutions with a systematic approach within one city.
Within the Smarter Together project scope, eight multimodal e-mobility stations were built within the project area of Neuaubing-Westkreuz and Freiham. In order to meet different needs, the mobility stations connect different offers for individual mobility: rental bikes, e-bikes, e-tricycles (all MVG), e-car sharing (STATTAUTO) as well as charging stations for electric vehicles, supplying 100% green electricity (SWM). A digital information pillar displays all available mobility options in the area – including easy access to information about the offered local services and public transport as well as map services. Additionally the mobility stations offer free wifi.
Two mobility stations have also been equipped with so called “Shared District Boxes”. These boxes make delivery, shopping and sharing possible on a 24/7 basis. Each set of boxes include compartments of different temperatures (cooling, refrigerated or at a constant ambient temperature) for different needs. The boxes can be used by local or online businesses as well as privately by the citizens to deposit or exchange objects such as tools.
