Mobility is a human ride

While many people take their ability to move around freely for granted, there are millions around the globe who are not able to exercise this basic right. Access to mobility is a prerequisite for social participation, it affects education, employment, healthcare, and social inclusion.

For over four decades, we as PTV - part of Umovity -  break down barriers, unleash mobility, and pave the way for equal opportunities.

Therefore, human-centricity is a fundamental aspect for us when creating new mobility software solutions or realizing projects with our partners and customers.

To emphasize the crucial role of human-centricity and public transport in guaranteeing mobility and accessibility, we have launched the campaign “#mobilityisahumanride”. Through this campaign, we aim to raise awareness of the importance of creating a more equitable and accessible world for all.

Join the human-ride

We want to understand and show the diversity of people in mobility, with all their individual needs and motivation. Therefore, we ask you to take part in our campaign and show us, what is important for you with respect to your mobility planning and why mobility should be a human ride for all. 


Step1: Take a picture of yourself, e.g. in front of a sustainable mode of transport with a cardboard or a piece of paper that shows the slogan: Mobility is a Human Ride.

Step 2: Share it on LinkedIn

Step 3: Add the campaign hashtag #mobilityisahumanride to it and tag @PTVGroup.

PTV will donate to WRI

And here is the best part: By supporting this campaign, you’re doing a good deed! To underline our commitment will donate 1 Euro for every corresponding LinkedIn post to the World Resources Institute. WRI is actively involved in various mobility projects in developing countries. To ensure the contribution counts, the hashtag #MobilityisaHumanRide and tag @PTV Group should be included in the post.
