Networked mobility for the Upper Middle Rhine region

Start: 12/2017

End: 11/2020

In order to master the mobility transition, new concepts linking mobility offers in a synergetic manner and make them accessible at a low threshold are needed.

The regiomove intermodal mobility project aims at comprehensively linking existing Karlsruhe transport services with those of the surrounding region and thus the entire Upper Middle Rhine region, combining train, bus, rental bike and car sharing. To this end, the mobility providers will be brought together on a common platform for route planning and booking. A mobile application enables the use of the different means of transportation along the planned route without the need to manage different tickets. In the future, the various mobility offerings will also be bundled at dedicated hubs – so-called “ports.” These will then facilitate easy and convenient selection and switching between different modes of transportation.

Within the consortium, the FZI is focusing on research into a preference service for managing personal mobility-related preferences. This enables routing service to compute individual routes based on user preferences.
