Cities mean lots of people and lots of traffic – and, in addition, the desire for more sustainable, convenient and flexible mobility, not to mention a high quality of urban life. Modern mobility concepts must take into account and reconcile a number of factors. One promising solution is known as the MOBIpoint (or MOBIpunkt in German), which is a hub that provides a clever answer to the question of how people in the future will get from A to B.
What’s the idea behind the MOBIpoint? “MOBI” stands for “Mobility,” and the idea of these points is to bundle city-friendly and environmentally friendly mobility offers, making the user more flexible and urban mobility easier. People can travel in a “multi-mobile” way – which enhances their general quality of life and is good for the environment. In practice, this means that users can switch between rail, bus, car-sharing and rental bikes; there are also charging columns for e-cars and e-bikes at the MOBIpunkt in front of the Gläserne Manufaktur. All modes of transport are bundled and available in one place – and there are several of these places within the city.
