The mobility transition is a political goal shared by more and more people in Germany. Public transport is important for regional value creation and employment. During the Corona pandemic, passenger numbers declined sharply. For the project “Employment effects of sustainable mobility in Germany until 2035”, M-Five analyzed how the future of public transport and its employees looked before the pandemic (Deine Bahn 07/2021, pages 56-59).

Driven by new participants and innovations, new mobility services are emerging. This is increasingly true for public transport. In this dynamic, public transport may come more and more under pressure to seize new opportunities for development. The project “Public Transport between Public Welfare and Commerce” examines these dynamics and presents initial theses.

Analysis and evaluation of employment impacts of connected and automated driving (CAD) in Europe until 2050. After 2030 the level of employment in freight transport will be substantially reduced caused by the deployment of CAD. However, automotive and IT-supply industries will benefit from the added value generated by CAD technologies.

The presentation contains key results from the project “Employment impacts of sustainable mobility in Germany until 2035”. The focus is on the effects of automated driving, which has a significant impact on the future prospects of regional employment in the German transport industry (In conference transcript from page 57).

Employment impacts of sustainable mobility in Germany until 2035: M-Five analysed how the mobility transition can affect employment in the vehicle industry. In relation to current employment in passenger car production, growth can be seen especially in regions where components for the electromobility are beeing produced.

Publicly used two-wheelers are one of the new forms of mobility. Compared to public transport and car sharing, they have lower access barriers as well as energy and space consumption. In this respect, scooter, kick scooter, and bike sharing are also relevant to the mobility transition. But does this also apply to other types of space? This article is based on a study of mobility concepts in Germany up to 2050.

This edition shows the number of cycling trips and sharing providers shortly after the start of the Corona crisis. Despite the differences between the cities, cycling shows a crisis-proof development overall. Up to the time of the survey, the market for shared mobility offers made it through the crisis on a positive note.

We examine the consequences of two scenarios: only one lockdown in the second quarter of 2020 or a longer duration of the Corona pandemic with two lockdowns in 2020. The gross domestic product (GDP) falls in the scenarios by -5% to -9% in 2020.

Artikel
Dr. Christian Scherf

This article is part of a publication series on the passenger transport market in Germany. The issue presents, among other things, energy sources by passenger transport performance, intermodal routes by weather impact, shares of e-cars in car sharing fleets and electronic payment options of selected mobility apps.

Sustainable mobility can be achieved through the electrification of road transport and the massive expansion of new multi-modal mobility concepts. Economic development remains secure, but there will be a massive structural change in employment that can affect up to 4 million workers.

2014
Dr. Christian Scherf

This article is part of a publication series on the passenger transport market in Germany. Among other things, the issue presents results on bike sharing in selected cities. The state of Hessen was identified as the front-runner in terms of density and expansion of bikesharing stations.

Artikel
Dr. Christian Scherf, Dr. Wolfgang Schade, Udo Wagner

This issue describes the development of the sharing market, which was characterised by new providers and growing fleets. Further topics are the employment level of urban mobility offers and the shares of round-trip commuters. The review shows an increasing importance of alternatives to cars.

Artikel
Dr. Christian Scherf

This article is part of a publication series on the passenger transport market in Germany. Findings in this issue included the decline in momentum in the car sharing market, the growth in transport performance in bikesharing and the coverage by mobile ticketing systems of about one third of Germany’s inhabitants.

The main topics of this issue were time and area comparisons between motorised individual transport (MIV) and public transport (ÖPNV). The results show that tram and subway speeds vary significantly between cities of similar size. It was confirmed that private and company cars occupy significant shares of space per city.

This article is part of a publication series on the passenger transport market in Germany. The central statements of the first edition were that intermodality has so far mainly played a role in long-distance transport routes and that muscle power was the second most important “energy source” in terms of transport performance in 2014.

The Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T ) is core element of EU transport policy. M-Five has applied its ASTRA-EU model to assess the GDP and job impacts of implementing the TEN-T by 2030. Considering different funding mechanims, productivity and trade impacts our results reveal that GDP will be 1,6% higher than without TEN-T.

The focus is on the development of light rail and tram systems in major German cities and the market dynamics of shared vehicles. Although the rail networks have been expanded in absolute terms in many cities, the route length per inhabitant has not increased since 2004. In shared mobility, e-scooters provided an increased overall supply.

The focus of the issue is on public transport and non-motorised transport. The example of Hamburg shows a growth of regular users of public transport that goes beyond the mere effect of population development. The analysis of pedestrian traffic supports the assumption that the MIV has an advantage over the ÖPNV with regard to the length of access and exit routes.
