Mobility node in Bleiburg

A multimodal mobility behaviour of society can be observed more and more in Europe. People are no longer interested to reach their destination; they are increasingly interested in using the means of transport best suited to their destination or the best combination of these. The development of mobility nodes give cities and municipalities the chance, to can support climate protection goals and to make a decisive contribution to the success of the traffic turnaround. Accordingly, the linking of public transport with other mobility services must be promoted and the traffic systems have to see and optimised as an overall system.

Public transport services can cover longer distances environmentally friendly, comfortable and fast. In most cases, however, public transport does not offer direct door-to-door travel. At close range, the bicycle is unbeatable in flexibility and travel time.

Modern information and communication technologies foster the necessary networking. Mobile Internet enables access to information and modern mobility services and enhances the time spent in public transport. Stations and bus stops should no longer be seen as mere access points to public transport services; they should offer passengers additional services and increase the quality of stay. Regarding environmental issues, they should be developed into transport hubs that are easily accessible on foot and by bicycle. Sufficiently weather-protected bicycle parking facilities, but also offers for car sharing and rental bikes create a strong network of the different transport modes.

Accompanying to one of our other deliverable, the plannings for the railway service from Klagenfurt via Bleiburg and Prevalje to Maribor, it is planned to establish a new mobility node in Bleiburg. This line has been unserved for a long time and the revival will be supported by this measure to increase its attractivity. The mobility node itself is planned in the area of the railway station.
