The Free Hanseatic City of Bremen is a city-state in the north of Germany near the North Sea and is Germany’s 10th largest city with a population of over 565,000 inhabitants. The Ministry for the Environment, Construction and Transportation (Senator für Umwelt, Bau und Verkehr) is the supreme building authority for the City of Bremen and is responsible for a wide range of administrative activities. The mobility concept for the city includes coordinated, non-discriminate planning for all modes of transport – pedestrian, bicycles, public transport, passenger rail transport, automobiles and commercial transport – geared toward efficiency, accessibility and social, economic and environmental sustainability.
In the SHARE-North project, the City of Bremen acts as project manager and lead beneficiary for the project consortium. The City’s goals within the project are, among other things, to promote a comprehensive, strategic and practical approach to urban and regional transport/accessibility through shared mobility solutions in the North Sea Region in the context of climate change and social inclusion and liveable cities and regions.
