Article
Being mobile is essential to participate in social life. However, as transport involves costs, this is a particular challenge for people on low incomes. Households with children are, especially, at an increased risk of poverty. To provide a deeper understanding of how financial poverty affects the daily travel practices of low-income families and h...
Article
Cycle streets have been implemented in many urban areas around the world in recent years to make cycling safer and more attractive. In these streets, cyclists have priority over motorised traffic. They are allowed to use the entire roadway and determine traffic speed. However, there have been no standardised design guidelines for cycle streets to d...
Article
To increase its attractiveness for employees, to save costs regarding parking supply and to foster modal shift away from the car, employers can offer sharply cost-reduced public transport tickets. In the state of Hesse/Germany, public authorities have gone one step further by introducing a cost-free public transport ticket for all state employees....

Article
Full-text available
To promote non-motorised travel, many travel behaviour studies acknowledge the importance of the built environment to modal choice, for example with its density or mix of uses. From a mobility design theory perspective, however, objects and environments affect human perceptions, assessments and behaviour in at least three different ways: by their p...
Article
Municipalities and planners often hesitate to implement restrictive parking policies because residents regularly oppose any changes to on-street parking space. Residential parking is one key factor of parking management because its location and availability influence a household's car ownership and use. Moreover, as more residents regularly use oth...
Article
Full-text available
In order to encourage a shift from the car to the more sustainable transport mode of cycling, cycle streets have been implemented in cities all over the world in the last few years. In these shared streets, the entire carriageway is designated for cyclists, while motorized traffic is subordinated. However, evidence on the impact of cycle street int...
Article
The organisation of parking is a key challenge to more sustainable mobility in urban areas, as its pricing and availability affect the rates of private car ownership and use. However, changing parking policies is a challenging issue for local politicians and planners because residents frequently oppose changes or restrictions to conditions they hav...

Article
Full-text available
Worldwide, academics and practitioners are developing ‘planning-oriented’ approaches to reduce the negative impacts of car traffic for more sustainable urban and transport development. One such example is the design of car-reduced neighborhoods, although these are controversial issues in the hegemonic ‘system’ of automobility. Despite the reduction...

Article
In Städten sind die lokalen Umweltfolgen des motorisierten Verkehrs, wie z. B. Feinstaub, Stickoxide oder Lärm, besonders ausgeprägt. Zugleich konzentrieren sich dort auch die wesentlichen Verursacher globaler Umweltfolgen des Verkehrs (z. B. Klimawandel, vgl. WBGU 2016). Inwiefern - trotz der vorhandenen Pfadabhängigkeiten - Gestaltungsspielräume...
Technical Report
Das Fahren ohne (gültigen) Fahrschein im ÖPNV ist bereits seit den 1960er Jahren ein Problem zahlreicher Verkehrsunternehmen. Auch für die ÖPNV-Nutzenden stellt es ein Problem dar, da Personen, die den ÖPNV ohne (gültiges) Ticket nutzen in Deutschland eine Straftat begehen. In der Wissenschaft wurde das Thema aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven hera...
