Ride solutions in public transport – practical examples


Frank Gerhardt, Wolfram Uerlich, Barbara Koch, Sven Domroes

Joining others on their ride is not only good for the environment but could also help fulfill the needs for mobility in rural areas. This form of transport is still not living up to its full potential. "Mitfahren i.G." are showing us solutions on how to establish and promote hitching a ride.

Leaser-tickets as a contribution to a traffic turnover? Evaluation results of the SennestadtTicket in Bielefeld


Janina Welsch, Michael Herwegen

In a part of the city Bielefeld, Sennestadt, a so called leaser-ticket has been introduced. This ticket allowed the free use of busses in Sennestadt and fewer costs of public transport in the rest of the city. The result: more people used busses and being on climate friendly vehicle made social participation easier.

Parking management (EN)


Dr. Paul Barter

Traffic planning is using parking management to manage the amount of space cars are taking up in cities. This way, cities can earn money to reinvest in other forms of transport as well. In this event we will look at the implementation of parking management and its effects for public transport.

Introducing Einfach Einsteigen


Wolfgang Geißler

Einfach Einsteigen has been working towards a traffic turnaround for three years in Bremen and Germany. The initiative is using an approach that develops concepts from professional findings, which meet approval from society and are being accelerated through campaign work. How Einfach Einsteigen works will be shown by Wolfgang Geißler by taking a look at the concept for Bremen.

Need-oriented transport


Christian Hinkelmann

The public transport in Germany is not managed from a users perspective and often fails their needs. How can transportation companies and associations be better problem solvers for their customers? How can we win back a user-focussed way of managing public transport? A search for answers.

Day 3: Saturday, 20. March 2021

Beneficial financing for the public transport infrastructure in cities


Oliver Mietzsch

Here, we illustrate a beneficial financing concept for cities’ railbound public transport systems. The implicated participation of this concept aims to cover the expenses for developing and extending the street infrastructure or rather municipal supply and disposal infrastructure (BauGB, laws of municipal taxes of the federal states). A significant difference to usual means of collecting taxes for this purpose is, regarding the current financing situation, that in terms of public transportation, there is no common use of it like in street infrastucture and that people are not forced to use (i.e. through follow-up fees).

Inclusive traffic turnaround


Janna Aljets

Mobility for everyone, what does that even mean? How do mobility-needs differ, and what makes the current traffic system unfair? What would our traffic system look like, if everyone was included? Why do we need feminism for more mobility, and how does the public transport take part in this? I will look at these questions by starting with a short presentation and discussing with you afterwards. We will develop ideas and strategies for a more inclusive traffic turnaround.

Homebound telephone


Cornelia Vogt

Concepts like the Homebound-telephone (also known as a "night-line") are common in Germany. It is about company over the phone for people, who are on their way to a destination and are feeling insecure. Cornelia Vogt, chairman of the Homebound-telephone, will be showing us the effects of sexism in public spaces and how we can make a change.

Joining a ride: matrix and the passenger-ticket


Yan Minagawa, Robin Weidner

At this event you will learn about the "Mitfahrscheibe", a ticket or disc similar to a parking disc that informs other people whether you offer lifts or carpools. We will talk about the carpool infrastructure over the last years and discuss its future potential as well as "Packages of Action".

Voluntary traffic turnaround-networking: example of the German Railway Customer Association


Frank Böhnke

Formation and foundation of the DBV and examples of successful and failed projects of the voluntary work in the area of mobility.

Passenger appreciation: the inner and outer design of public transport vehicles


Stephan Kyrieleis

To attract more people to use public transport, it is not just about the price or offer of rides. Public transport needs a new, confident appearance. When looking at the outer designs of trains, we can conclude whether the customers are being valued or only seen as transport goods. The interior design and its color can make a difference considering the level of comfort of the customers. The costs are also low in comparison to the whole vehicle. We will look at practical examples and the various options, including art.

How public transport providers can increase vaccine access (EN)


Stewart Mader

Accelerating COVID-19 vaccination will advance a post-pandemic future in which transit can fully realize its promise. This session will highlight three ways that transit agencies can support vaccination for communities they serve, and explain how accelerating vaccination will help agencies better prepare for post-pandemic service.
