- private cars are parked preferably on private property
Accessible mobility networks:
- a suitable network for intersection level and network level
- residential and commercial development should include easily accessible parking

Vision of Smart Mobility: three pillars of mobility 1. physical and digital infrastructure Goals until 2030:
- flexible setup (incl. data management) for expected and unknown mobility solutions
- smart systems to share data to control and steer the infrastructure
2. mobility solutions

- municipality responsibility for affordable mobility
- wherever possible, strengthen the public network as basis
- stimulates a community-oriented bottom-up approach for initiatives
- on-site update of travel information
