Mobility

Cycling in Germany is booming

Parliamentary State Secretary Norbert Barthle

"The invention of the bicycle by Karl Drais in 1817 was probably also the start of the first mobility revolution of the modern age. Today, the bicycle is on the fast track and its popularity is increasing like that of no other means of transport. It stands for successful innovation, modernity and future. Cycling is being particularly promoted by the spread of digital technology. A growing number of IT-based services are making cycling more accessible, simpler and increasing the comfort of cyclists."

Mobility

The future of mobility is electric

Bundesminister Alexander Dobrindt (Quelle: Bundesregierung / Kugler)

"There is great potential inherent in electric mobility – especially in local public transport and urban commercial transport. It is imperative that we exhaust this potential. For this reason, we are providing financial assistance to innovative ideas that identify ways of evolving electric mobility and reducing the costs of vehicles and systems. This is an important step towards making electric mobility fit for everyday use and putting electric vehicles on the roads throughout the country."
