Motorized traffic significantly exacerbates the climate crisis, environmental degradation, and the occurrence of health impairments . Consequently, our primary emphasis within mobility research lies in addressing how mobility cultures can be transitioned towards greater sustainability.

The mobility culture approach serves as the cornerstone of our investigation, interconnecting rational, symbolic, and material dimensions of mobility and transportation. Based on the needs of users, both structural and technical parameters and the symbolic meanings of mobility are taken into account. This approach enables us to investigate both the impediments and the potential for transformative change.. On this basis, we develop strategies and offers for mobility practices that are less dependent on the use of individual cars.
