Berlin Launch of Towards New Urban Mobility Report

22 September 2015

On the 21 September the results of this comparative study on mobility attitudes in London and Berlin were presented by Christian Hoffmann from InnoZ and Philipp Rode from LSE Cities at the Social Science Research Center Berlin for Social Research (WZB) in Berlin.

‘Towards New Urban Mobility: The case of London and Berlin’ provides insight into how urban transport policy can better leverage new and emerging mobility choices in cities. This new report was prepared by LSE Cities at the London School of Economics and Political Science and the Innovation Centre for Mobility and Societal Change (InnoZ), and supported by the German Federal Ministry for Transport, Building and Urban Development and Deutsche Bank’s Alfred Herrhausen Society.
