Different studies assume that mobility behavior of individuals will change within the next years. Both public transport services and flexible vehicle sharing services gain importance, the possession of an own car becomes however less important: The project I-eMM investigates how electromobility services can be designed and operated efficiently in particular together with public transport and car sharing.
The project I-eMM investigates thereby concepts for supply and operation of mobility service that combine (electric) vehicle offers of car sharing operators and of local public transport operators. The analysis is applied on the example of the Rhine/Neckar region. Here, the focus is on the potentials of new electromobility offers out of the cooperation of Stadtmobil Rhein-Neckar AG and Rhein-Neckar-Verkehr GmbH. Mobility patterns are analyzed and a stated preference survey is conducted in order to quantify future mobility demand in the Rhine/Neckar region. On the basis of defined mobility offers business models and involved processes are designed and analyzed in order to enable an integrated approach. The integration of real time data from electric vehicles and local public transport operations are also in the focus of the project. Therefore, suitable interfaces for the exchange of real time data between electric vehicle, fleet operator and regional public transport control center are designed. So, information services to travelers and commuters that provide information from all involved operators and support the trip itinerary in the Rhine/Neckar region can be improved – and future attractiveness of electromobility-solutions can be enhanced.
