Bremen Launches the Construction of Ten New Mobility Stations and Udo
May 7th, 2015
The construction of ten new on-street mobility stations, car sharing stations located in neighbourhoods with high parking pressure, is scheduled to begin next week. The implementation of these on-street parking stations is part of Bremen’s strategy for reducing parking pressure in the city as well as expanding versatile mobility offers in the city that lead to more environmentally-friendly mobility behaviour. The implementation of these stations, which are to be equipped with a total of 24 car sharing vehicles, will bring Bremen closer to achieving the goals defined in its Car Sharing Action Plan – 20,000 car sharing users by 2020. The construction of five additional stations is planned for the second half of 2015, for a total of 15 stations to be built in 2015 alone.
