Everyone is talking about mobility transition and the Verkehrsverbund Berlin-Brandenburg public transport authority (VBB) is charged with carrying out this process on behalf of the States of Berlin and Brandenburg. If CO2 emissions are to be reduced in the transport sector, many more people will need to switch from their own cars to climate-friendly public transport. By providing higher frequency, better performance, more comfort and climate friendly technologies for the trains, this trend can gain more strength. As can be seen most particularly in the i2030 rail expansion project, Berlin and Brandenburg along with Deutsche Bahn and VBB are firmly committed to accelerating the mobility transition in the capital region. The VBB’s special exhibition in the Deutsches Technikmuseum (Ladestraße section) provides visitors with a vivid look into the ongoing process.
Four theme-based displays provide a clear picture of the current developments:
More and more people are living and working in Berlin and neighboring Brandenburg - and when it comes to mobility, they are opting for environmentally friendly rail travel. To ensure that rail services can keep pace with the steadily growing mobility needs of an increasing population, the rail infrastructure in Berlin and Brandenburg must also continue to develop. This is precisely what the States of Berlin and Brandenburg, the Deutsche Bahn and the Verkehrsbund Berlin-Brandenburg transport authority (VBB) have joined forces to accomplish with their i2030 project.
