GPSM will be present at this year’s opening ceremony of the AGNH with a stall and will be representing its friends and the Network. In its new mobility policy, Hesse promotes specifically local mobility, especially walking and cycling as non-motorized modes. The new working Group on Local Mobility (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Nahmobilität, AGNH) aims to improve linkages of transport modes, as for example bus- and (local) train stations with cycling and walking. Next to other measures, easier interchange and accessibility could be convincing for many to use public transportation instead of their own car for daily commuting. Tarek Al-Wazir, minister for economic affairs, transport and energy of Hesse and Maria Vassilakou, Vienna’s vice mayor, will share interesting insights and host fruitful discussions about mobile urban society at the opening event.
There, we look forward to the active exchange of experiences and cooperation with you.
