Ensuring mobility in times of demographic change

  • In recent years, numerous projects have been initiated and implemented aiming to ensure publicly accessible mobility services in rural areas, even in times of demographic change.

  • With the publication of the BMVBS brochure "Mobility Assurance in Times of Demographic Change" published in autumn 2012, PTV prepared, systematized and documented the results of these projects to a wide public. The documentation primarily addresses rural stakeholders in the areas of "services of general interest" and "mobility".


  • Within the framework of the study, four modules for integrated mobility concepts were identified:

    • Stationary services (module 1)
    • Mobile services (module 2)
    • Sustainable mobility offers (module 3)
    • Organization and marketing (module 4)
    Each component is specified by concrete measures and illustrated by practical examples in the form of interviews with the relevant actors.
