Berlin: Jointly with ADAC, Agora Verkehrswende, the Berlin senate and the Embassy of the Netherlands, the Swiss Mobilitätsakademie hosted the 5th World Collaborative Mobility Congress from October 18 to 20. During the three days the congress participants from all over the world discussed trends and potential scenarios in collaborative and shared mobility, such as:
- Decarbonizing effects of shared and collaborative mobility on cities.
- The winner takes it all – will network effects lead to a natural monopoly in the mobility sectors?
- Will autonomous vehicles sound the death knell for individual car ownership?
- Expected improvements for public transport in rural areas, for children and elderly or disabled people through smaller but more frequent autonomous bus services.
- Ways how new bike sharing providers can support public transport instead of clogging sidewalks.
- Bicylces as “feeder systems” for public mass transit on the first and last mile .
- “Air pollution is killing people” – how collaborative mobility reduces pollution.
- CoMobility meets Mobility as a Service – orchestrating all services from mass transit to bike sharing
