On 22 February 2024, @Philipp Schlemmer and @Mayur Kumargowda of @RMO organized the second Living Lab event, focusing on Scenario Development


Two scenarios were presented: One focused on the limited accessibility of public transport, particularly for individuals residing outside main transport routes. Participants identified the scarcity of local taxis and the underrepresentation of female entrepreneurs in the transportation sector as contributing factors. To mitigate these issues, they proposed region-specific demand-oriented taxi services and the expansion of Demand-Responsive Transport (DRT) throughout the region.

Another scenario centred on the fragmentation of mobility services caused by the existence of various separate apps. Participants recognized the need for a unified app that integrates all mobility services to provide users with optimal and efficient transportation recommendations. Overall, the discussions underscored the importance of addressing accessibility issues and streamlining mobility services through innovative solutions like DRT and unified apps.



The workshop highlighted two crucial areas for improving mobility in the region.

Firstly, it emphasized the need to address the limited accessibility of public transport, especially for those living outside main routes: proposed solutions were tailored taxi services and Demand-Responsive Transport.

Secondly, the workshop discussed the fragmentation of mobility services caused by multiple separate apps, making it challenging for users to find efficient transportation options. The proposal for a unified app encompassing all mobility services could significantly streamline mobility solutions and provide users with better recommendations.

Pilot projects should be initiated to test proposed interventions in real-world settings, allowing for evaluation and refinement. Simultaneously, efforts should proceed with developing an AI-based chatbot for mobility coordination and travel planning.
