The everyday mobility in cities and urban regions is strongly increasing. Statistics show that road infrastructures are often congested by private car traffic. Current planning measures concerning individual and public transport are not sufficient for stopping this development. Mostly, specific political and planning actions are taken reactively in order to reduce private car usage, although it would be necessary to create new and integrative multimodal offers and concepts, especially for local and everyday mobility (commuting to work / education). In and around cities new global solutions are necessary to increase the attractiveness of the entire mobility chain with its integrated mobility hubs and thus to promote environmental-friendly means of transport. Therefore, within the respective project an initial step is to develop overall planning concepts and standards for determining multimodal mobility chains and assessing mobility hubs.
In coordination with an ÖROK working group and based on the concept of ÖV-Güteklassen (public transport assessment), options for expanding the assessment relating/considering multimodality nationwide will be pointed out. On this basis, a scalable model of accessibilities for mapping seamless mobility chains containing public transport (Park&Ride, Bike&Ride, Kiss&Ride) will be developed. This model allows an extensive/area-wide analysis of travel times of different mobility chains and the comparison with individual transport options. Finally, an exploration and development of spatial methods and instruments for a demand-oriented and overall planning of multimodal mobility offers as well as integrated mobility hubs will be conducted in order to support future-oriented personal mobility options. Therefore, a spatially transferable potential model based on different data (spatial structure, infrastructure, demography, accessibilities, mobility offer) will be carried out. Combining the results with high-resolution commuter data enables a mapping of commuting activities on the transport network in addition, which is an important basis for an integrated mobility and spatial planning.
The outlook will show how the concepts and tools can contribute to the management and controlling of multimodal mobility hubs (IOT applications, map dashboard / common operational picture of a hub, event-based planning of measures etc.). All the concepts will be tested prototypically within the province of Salzburg (application partner Salzburger Verkehrsverbund). The use of nationwide comparable data services (e.g. VAO, GIP) and the involvement of relevant multipliers (10 LOIs: UML Salzburg, AustriaTech, Land Salzburg - Verkehrsplanung, Land Salzburg - Raumplanung, Land Oberösterreich, Stadt Salzburg - Stadtplanung, Smart City Salzburg, DataMarketAustria, ivm - Integriertes Verkehrsund Mobilitätsmanagement Region Frankfurt RheinMain GmbH, Münchner Verkehrsverbund - MVV) will guarantee the transferability within Austria.
These contributions to intelligent transportations systems (ITS) will foster new possibilities of transportation and mobility management as well as the development of components of bigger, efficient solutions. Thus, an easy use of different mobility offers (Mobility-as-a-service) allows to make the access to mobility more attractive for as many users as possible according to their demand. This project is embedded in the strategy of the "Mobilitätslabor (UML) Salzburg". Services provided by the UML will be used, but also the coordination of project results together with the UML is planned. In addition, it will be examined whether data of the leading project "DataMarketAustria" can be used or the project results can be integrated in it.
