“Mobility for all”
Germany should follow the Swiss example and take a huge step towards future mobility with a policy offensive. This would include an all-encompassing mobility ticket covering all forms of public transport, as well as car- und bike-sharing, write Green politicians Anton Hofreiter and Oliver Krischer in a guest commentary in the Frankfurter Rundschau. “Sadly, Germany is still a very long way away from this integrated mobility,” write the authors. The current government is heading in the wrong direction by focussing on “yesterday’s automobility” and planning to build innumerable roads, say Hofreiter and Krischer.
