The influx of people to cities is not only causing housing shortages but is also overloading the transport system. As a result, many cities and communities are introducing individual traffic control regulations and increasingly also bans.
The BMW Group aims to work together with cities and communities to develop and implement common solutions to address increasing traffic volumes and the related emissions. There is still enormous potential in collaboration between cities, mobility service providers and vehicle manufacturers.
In this context, we are focusing on measures to ramp up electromobility, such as the establishment and expansion of charging infrastructures in the right places or the implementation of “eZones”, in which plug-in hybrid vehicles switch automatically to electric mode.
In addition, we are also focusing on traffic management measures to maintain the flow of traffic. Among other aspects, this includes digital tools such as parking management systems that encourage people to switch to other forms of transport and prevent congestion caused by drivers seeking parking spaces.
The aim is to show cities a future in which the mobility needs of their citizens are fulfilled and sustainability goals can also be achieved.
