The traffic situation in the FrankfurtRheinMain region is highly complex and involves much more than just commuter traffic, which in the past represented the main basis for assessment for the development of the transport infrastructure and operational deals offered by companies. It has always been a matter of course to consider the interdependencies of transport in relation to residential areas and open spaces, as well passing on important knowledge to the community. The Regional Authority supports its member communities in a variety of ways in matters relating to mobility and transport and promotes their interlinking.
Sustainability and innovative mobility development are fundamental objectives of the Authority. Of particular importance to us is promoting and strengthening cycling in everyday life and during free time, both at a regional and a local level. In addition, the first adjunct of the Regional Authority represents the Authority in the Working Group for Local Mobility (AGNH) for the state of Hesse, which has targeted the strengthening of pedestrian and cycle traffic for everyday journeys. The integrated design of main roads plays a central role in this.
One of their tasks includes the collection of information and data. It prepares it for the communities, initiates projects or organises meetings of local stakeholders.
Additionally, the Authority also tackles issues in the areas of rail transport − here especially in freight transport − and motorised private transport for a good accessibility of the region as well as for development compatible with the local communities. An example of which is illustrated by the cooperation on the Rhine-Alpine Corridor - particularly within the framework of European funding projects - which has an influence on very regional solutions at the local level.
Finally, the Regional Authority is currently participating for the third time in the ‘Mobility in Germany’ (MiD) survey, which is conducted nationwide every six to eight years. Together with other partners, reliable mobility figures can be ascertained for the region from this and part of them then used to be compared in a time series. The first results of the survey, which runs until mid 2017, are anticipated in the first half of 2018; when important regional results will also be communicated.
