Umparken Schwabing-West

Munich, Germany ,2020

A different kind of #streetexperimentwas conducted this summer in Munich by @unternehmertum_munich in cooperation with various local partners and startups.

In a densely built-up district of Munich with high parking pressure, several households were asked to give up their private cars for 4 weeks. Instead they received a mobility voucher for various mobility services such as e-scooters, public transport or car sharing. At the same time, the newly gained space was used to create a quality #publicspace to linger and to provide #sustainablemobility options. After the experiment, 3 of the 8 participating households decided to sell their private car!
