MOBI point: the first Dresden Mobility Point is now available
As part of the European Mobility Week 2018, the Dresden Public Transport Authority (DVB) and the City of Dresden opened the first Dresden Mobility Point together with their partners. It bundles the city and environmentally friendly mobility offers tram, bus, rental bike and car as well as charging points for e-cars in one place and thus enables a quick change between different means of transport. The so-called MOBI point is located in the immediate vicinity of the stop on the north-south axis on part of the parking space between Ringstrasse and St. Petersburger Strasse. Pirnaischer Platz is the first of six pilot locations, in total a network of 76 mobility points is to be created in Dresden. “Our aim is to reduce private motorisation and use of motor vehicles in order to reduce noise, space requirements and air pollution. Mobility points are an important component of our strategy. For their construction and operation, we have formed a network of local partners,” explains Raoul Schmidt-Lamontain, Mayor of Construction. “We are very pleased that DVB has made such a strong commitment to this issue. Also actively involved are DREWAG – Stadtwerke Dresden GmbH with charging points for electric cars, the DDV media group with sz-bike, the company teilAuto as car sharing operator and the Verkehrsverbund Oberelbe. “The mobility points should make the alternatives to individual car traffic more visible and invite easy use,” says Schmidt-Lamontain. “Dresden has the goal of reducing greenhouse gases by 40 percent between 2005 and 2030. The mobility sector is responsible for around 30 percent of all CO2 emissions in Dresden. Unfortunately, so far there have been hardly any declines in this area. The mobility point at Pirnaischer Platz and the others that will follow soon will help the citizens of Dresden to switch more easily to climate-friendly means of transport,” says Ina Helzig, head of the climate protection staff.
