In a multidisciplinary consortium a concept of integrated, sustainable mobility for the University Alliance Ruhr will be developed and tested it in a field study.
In a multidisciplinary consortium of social sciences, economics and engineering, researchers from the three Ruhr Universities are investigating the question of how mobility in the Ruhr Area can be made sustainable. The project will develop a concept of integrated, sustainable mobility for the University Alliance Ruhr and test it in a field study.
The aim is to improve the transport links between the four locations of the University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr), Duisburg, Essen, Bochum and Dortmund, to close gaps in the range of services on offer and thus bring about a lasting change in the mobility behaviour of students and employees.
The plan is to survey mobility requirements and develop scenarios which will be tested in a simulator and finally tested in real life. For this purpose, locally emission-free technologies, e.g. electric shuttles, but also on-demand services and other forms of new mobility will be used.
The project is funded by the Ministry of Transport of North Rhine-Westphalia.
