Dresden, the state capital of Saxony, Germany wants to set up 76 mobility hubs in the city area. At these stations, users can quickly switch between environmental friendly and city-friendly means of transport such as bicycles, car sharing, electric cars and local public transport. Six of these will be implemented as pilot sites: Pirnaischer Platz, Bahnhof Mitte, Altpieschen, P+R Prohlis, Fetscherplatz and Wasaplatz. Dresdner Verkehrsbetriebe AG (DVB) receives financial support for these pilot sites from the national climate protection initiative.

The first mobility hub at Pirnaischer Platz will go into operation on 21 September 2018. Within the framework of the EU Smart City project MAtchUP (www.matchup-project.eu), the acceptance and reactions of users are collected and evaluated in the first months. In connection with the project, also three mobility hubs will be planned and one implemented in the selected district Johannstadt. These practical experiences flow into the implementation of the other mobility hubs. The “Mobility Points” working group founded by Lord Mayor Dirk Hilbert has presented a technically and technically coordinated basis for a further 24 locations.

In a growing and increasingly dense city, ensuring mobility for all and bringing it into harmony with the quality of life is a challenge for urban development. Dresden is focusing on a comprehensive and sustainable mobility strategy. Intermodal mobility hubs are an important component.
