Berlin is the capital city of Germany, and is one of the sixteen states of Germany. It has a population of 3.4 million people, and is Germany's largest city. Berlin's urban transport development plan ("Stadtentwicklungsplan Verkehr") sets the course for a modern mobility policy in Berlin for the coming years. This integrated transport strategy considers the mobility needs of all traffic participants and it provides a policy framework for concrete measures to achieve sustainable mobility.
All indications suggest that the individual transport in Berlin is likely to continue within the next 10 to 15 years despite the stagnant growth of population. Urban transport development has to meet these changed mobility needs of the population. Furthermore, the urban transport development has to fulfil different criteria: economic efficiency, social justice and environmental safety.
Berlin is/was involved in EU projects: Conduits, Citymove, CityLog, MOLECULES and SMARTFUSION.
