Beyond technology: Vital prerequisites for an effective shared mobility are through governance and policymaking
Arnd Bätzner, Member of the board of directors, Mobility Cooperative
The discourse about more powerful contributions from shared mobility to the decarbonisation of mobility chains, is largely technology-focused. However, a key success factor for forms of mobility with certain requirements and shared vehicles that are integrated into transport chains are aspects that are often overlooked, such as access to public space: Today, digital technologies can essentially do what is required of them, but a “proof of concept” of what is feasible often dominates the specification, instead of focusing on social requirements. However, the latter would be a basic prerequisite, in particular managing to separate everyday mobility from private automobiles. What does this mean for regulations in both urban and rural areas? How can players in administration and politics acquire this knowledge, and how can it be implemented and further developed? What are suitable monitoring metrics?
14.45 - 15.00 h
Car sharing as part of the Luxembourg parking strategy
Jeff Biever, Mobility Planner, Ministry of Mobility and Public Works, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg
One car sharing vehicle can replace up to 12 private cars and parking spaces. Car sharing therefore plays a special role in Luxembourg's parking strategy. Car sharing is particularly effective if the stations are located in the public space close to the demand. As a result, the legal framework is currently being created in Luxembourg that allows the reservation of parking spaces in public spaces for a carsharing vehicle.
15.00 - 15.15 h
Shared Mobility – the role of the federal government
Thomas Marty, Mobility specialist, Swiss federal office of energy SFOE, Bundesamt für Energie BFE
What role does Shared Mobility play in Switzerland's transport system? How is the market developing and what role could Shared Mobility play in the future? What challenges do we face and how does the SFOE support sharing projects in Switzerland?

Smart Mobility in der Schweiz: Quo Vadis?
Gabriele D'Achille, Director and Head of Transport & Logistics, PwC Schweiz
Due to increasing climate change, urbanisation, population growth and growing prosperity, many cities are facing major mobility challenges. In Switzerland, the central challenges are traffic congestion and particulate matter pollution. In the latter, the most harmful levels in the largest Swiss cities are between 2 and almost 2.5 times the limit value recommended by the World Health Organisation. In its new Smart Mobilty study "Together for sustainable mobility in Swiss cities", PwC has investigated the activities with which the cities of Zurich, Basel, Bern, Lausanne and Geneva are meeting these challenges.
