Vienna has taken a lead in modern mobility solutions and public transports for decades. As pollution, congestion and the climate crisis become an ever-bigger problem, other cities start to take note.
Berlin is one of the first big cities to declare that they want to introduce the Vienna model. “Step by step I want to follow the goal of introducing an annual public transport ticket for €365,” Berlins’s mayor Michael Müller announced at an open discussion round with the Swiss daily Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Other German cities like Bonn and Reutlingen already run tests since the beginning of 2019.
In our mobility issue in April 2018, we showed what the switch to the €1-per-day Jahreskarte achieved in Vienna – and what else moves our city every day.
