Integrated, Social transport solutions

The car has turned a good part of people's lives - commuting - into solitary events. Integrated public transport solutions that are efficient, ecological, but above all social could contribute to rebuilding communities.

Rebuilding communities can be facilitated around common activities and designing for opportunities for people to meet and interact. This is an example of a mobility concept developed in Germany that primarily aims to revolutionise urban travelling, but in doing so also is a very social affair that brings people together. 

In their own words
"mo is a new mobility system - it helps make the city a better place to live. mo subscribers can rent bikes, cargobikes, ebikes and cars or use public transportation with just one card. With mo it pays to be eco-friendly: choose an eco-friendly transport or use your own bike to collect momiles. The more momiles the lower your bill. For instance if you mostly ride bikes, renting a car gets cheaper. Cycle and save money."
