Mobility concept for the Vier- und Marschlande in Hamburg-Bergedorf


Vier- und Marschlande

The current mobility system is strongly geared to motorized individual transport and offers few opportunities for environmentally and socially compatible mobility alternatives. This is also reflected in usage. The proportion of private households with one or more cars in the Vier- und Marschlanden is particularly high, while regular use of environmental transport is particularly low. Equitable mobility opportunities, however, require good mobility offers also for people who do not own or use a car. In addition, environmentally friendly alternatives are indispensable in order to comply with climate protection goals. Therefore, we develop a mobility concept in order to implement the traffic turnaround targeted by the City of Hamburg in the rural area of the Vier- und Marschlande.

Project steps

  1. Preparation of socio-demographic profiles and development forecasts
  2. Detailed analysis of mobility needs and current mobility behavior of relevant groups
  3. Accessibility analysis and traffic survey
  4. Low-threshold participation through online and offline surveys
  5. Measure development including costs, time horizons and CO2 savings
  6. Development of indicators to evaluate the achievement of objectives


The concept ensures the accessibility of destinations in Vier- und Marschlande through a variety of mobility options. The subjective and objective sense of safety is increased and the mobility offers are used by diverse target groups. Due to improved accessibility, the mobility offers and the infrastructure lead to increased social participation, also for disadvantaged groups. In addition, the concept takes into account the increase in attractiveness of the Vier- und Marschlande from a tourist point of view through compatible transport offers.

The mobility system creates the basis for establishing a sustainable and socially compatible mobility system in the Vier- und Marschlande. It is an important building block for a sustainable development of the region.


A catalog of measures for various fields of action will be developed and measure profiles including evaluation will be drawn up. Costs, time horizons and CO2 savings are determined and presented.
