With a population of over 1.5 million, Munich is a major transportation hub in Europe. The city has a robust public transport system, with public transport accounting for 24% of mode share and cycling and pedestrians making up a significant portion as well. Various shared mobility modes are available throughout the city, including car-sharing, bike-sharing, electric moped-sharing, and scooter-sharing.
The Living Lab extends the aims of the SUM project beyond its initial scope, focusing on promoting innovative shared mobility through policies and establishing long-lasting innovation partnerships. The project aligns with the European Green Deal’s goals, including Munich’s aim for 100% climate neutrality by 2035. The Living Lab covers the entire city of Munich as its observation area.
