Bus and train or car sharing and rental bicycles: There are many options for meeting individual mobility needs, even without a private car. The RegioMOVE project aims to pool the mobility offers in a system-overlapping, interconnected, and environmentally compatible and user-friendly portfolio. Within the framework of the project funded with about EUR 5 million by the Karlsruhe transport association KVV, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), together with partners, will develop a new mobility concept.
