White Paper – Urban Mobility in a Post-Covid-19 World
Impact and recovery of urban mobility using Berlin as an example.
As public life starts to move into the post-Covid-19 phase, the question remains how urban mobility will adapt to this “new normal.” From today’s perspective on the weeks and months behind us, the trajectory for the future becomes clearer. The urban mobility ecosystem adapted quickly and flexibly to changing customer demands. In fact, this ability to match overall supply of mobility modes with individual preferences on the demand side will be a key success factor for cities from now on. In this white paper, Porsche Consulting and Trafi used the example of Berlin to compare direct implications of the pandemic on urban mobility behavior, especially the relative use of different modes of transportation before and during the lockdown phase.
Commercial transport today accounts for 25 to 30% of urban traffic. An alternative to current urban logistics systems can be a combination of light to medium-duty commercial vehicles, streetcars and electric cargo bikes.
