Today, mobility is more important than ever, but whether by train, car or plane: our mobility systems are on the brink of collapse. What options do commuters, business travelers and employers have to relieve this situation?

Tips for commuters

The number of commuters is increasing

For many it is part of everyday madness: commuting to work. Crowded lanes and delays or congestion on the highways do not provide many professionals with an optimal start to the day.

But many hardships in commuting take many workers for their dream job. Of course, the job is more likely to be changed than the place of residence and the private environment. Leaving home territory is often not a realistic option. It is better to take a longer journey to work. No matter what price.

That the Stress is so big, however, is also because our transport systems are on the verge of collapse. Mobility is not just simple locomotion, but an expression of a meta-mobile way of life that includes our consumption habits as well as our social relationships.

Of course, as a person without a driver's license, one thing makes me especially happy: Obviously, we are facing the end of the cultural model of mass motorization. The car - once epitome of freedom and individual mobility - has long since reached its limits in the face of increasing traffic problems, especially in the emerging megacities of the emerging markets.

Face-time incentives in business mobility

In addition to the change in private mobility consumption, the Future professional mobility is crucial Significance. The lives of a growing number of People is characterized by maximum flexibility, networking, internationality and individuality.

This multi-mobile Business-Class acts in a world-encompassing sphere of action, the globe becomes Workplace, the World to the home, the mobility lounge to the living room. Corporate therefore need for their Employees and customers provide mobile services to keep up with increasing networking and mobility. Because business mobility of the future means: work is becoming more mobile, the kilometers are fewer.

Networked mobility in demand

What is needed is new, sustainable and at the same time networked mobility concepts that allow individuals more flexibility and individuality in mass traffic. Thus, there is a growing desire for mobility solutions that focus not on ownership but on the use of transport.

People's awareness of mobility is changing overall. Many would like to see existing means of transport networked. The Switching from buses and trains to bicycles or car-sharing vehicles must function more smoothly, and the infrastructure network must be expanded accordingly.

Changing the system: sustainable sharing beats the ego

The future of mobility is based on system innovations that have evolved from central traffic planning into a self-controlling one System make. Only then will the system-changing synergies between the modes of transport arise, linking public and private transport without loss and thus creating real-time mobility that is neutral in terms of transport.

However, we are a long way from a smoothly functioning premium public transport. Instead of offers that leave today's driver no more arguments to continue owning a car and driving it to work every morning, Umsteiger expects every day havoc with Deutsche Bahn.

Stand-by-mobility and Social Logistic Networks

To close this gap, there was always ideas: "BeMobility", for example, an interdisciplinary research project for the integration of electric and hybrid vehicles in public transport in the Berlin/Potsdam model region. With a "card for everything", users could rent a bike via "Call a Bike", book an electric or hybrid car via "Flinkster mein Carsharing" and also use public transport more cheaply and flexibly.

Or Bring Buddy - a kind of car sharing agency for parcels from DHL. If you want to know about Facebook registered, could pick up parcels at predetermined locations and bring friends with them on the way in or out of town. Both good ideas, just thinking about those Problem, which I always have when delivering a package. However, neither of the two systems has prevailed.

Car sharing & Co

Despite all the problems, various studies show that the desire to own a car is slowly but for sure goes back According to various studies, car sharing, leasing and subscription models are constantly growing phenomena, especially in urban areas that have a high mobility density due to public transport. In addition, there is the increasingly controversial climate debate.

All clear is: In the cities you need your own car less and the sense of personal car ownership is almost zero. The more the forms of 'shared mobility' become more professional, the less it will be necessary to always have the same car in front of the door. In the country with poor public transport connections and low car sharing density, however, it looks very different.

Flexible solutions also needed in elongated areas

ViveLaCar, a mobility fintech, could now fill this gap Startups from Stuttgart. The principle: Existing vehicles from dealers are brokered to customers as a car subscription. In the subscription prices are all Costs except petrol already included, instead of entering into numerous contracts required of Customer just a few clicks. Another highlight is that because the dealerships are nationwide, the car subscription is also possible in more rural regions.

ViveLaCar closes the gap between short-term rental, car sharing, purchase and leasing with its variable terms and notice periods of three months. The cars are so far in Germany and Austria available, according to own data the enterprise has a monthly subscriber increase of 50 per cent. The flexibility also makes the subscription model interesting for companies that want to offer employees a company car, for example during the trial period. You will see how the business model develops.
