This vision focuses on the long-term strengthening of bicycle mobility services for local residents: An integral part of this is the introduction of a public mobility (bike) rental system.
The starting point for a sharing system in NHSH differs from conventional market/turnover-oriented offers due to the small scale, the relatively isolated peripheral location of the neighbourhood and its specific socio-demographics and spatial typology. It therefore needs an approach that is holistic, not turnover-oriented and colourful. Accordingly, a sharing system for this place that offers incentives to drive must be thought of in a fundamentally different way than existing offers: usual cost points, spatial and network constellations must be redesigned in the course of this.
In concrete terms, this means
- a redesign of the street space in favour of cycling,
- cooperation between urban development actors, and
- a qualitative further development of public space.
The district should operate the services, generate knowledge and, with a constant evaluation of user data, adapt and improve the services according to need. It is important to develop a flexible concept that is also resilient to unexpected changes.
