Living Lab Berlin


The population is around 3.5 million; on average, each Berliner makes three journeys per day and spends about 70 minutes in traffic. The proportion of journeys on foot is almost as high as that of journeys covered by car and inhabitants demonstrate different traffic behaviors depending on where they live. More people are leaving Berlin to live in its surroundings than are moving in from them, this is in correlation with the increase in the number of commuters. Berlin possesses an outstanding local public transportation network. The network of regional trains and bus has a total length of around 1,900 km.

Activities in IMOVE :

Berlin is probably the city in Europe that offers the best mix and highest number of mobility providers: a very efficient public transport network, several carsharing services both stationary (3) and freefloating (3), peer to peer carsharing (2), bike (3) and scooter sharing (2) and a large taxi’s fleet. Urbi already grants the integration of many of them, indeed for the majority of them through Urbi it is possible to search, book and pay and for some of them it is possible only to search for them and finally the rest of the providers are still not visible in Urbi app. The technology integration is almost full in place, however urbi still does not provide a complete Maas scheme with a single subscription that includes different providers. Actually,Urbi users still have to pay each single provider. In the Berlin Living Lab Urbi aims at offering a complete MaaS solution, with different subscription packages including all the urban mobility services.
