Public Transport in Digital Urban Transformation

Munich is growing. Rising population figures in Munich and the city-region, continuously growing ridership in public transport and changing mobility patterns make further forward-looking development of transport infrastructure necessary. Urban development and the projects of the city must however be oriented even stronger towards existing and new public infrastructure, especially in the area of ​​mobility, to remain sustainable and affordable in every respect. The tight integration of urban development, but also individual large projects with public transport is thus a matter for private developers, architects, traffic planners and policy-makers as well as the planning administration. At the same time, cities are amidst a digital transformation that increasingly covers all aspects of urban life.

The public lecture series "Public Transport in Digital Urban Transformation" covers these topics with three expert presentations each semester.



The lecture series will take place digitally with the videoconference software Zoom.
