Transforming the transport sector for EVERYONE

How to achieve more socially just and environmentally friendly mobility


This position paper shows why the German transport system is in urgent need of reform, not only from an environmental but also from a societal point of view. Households with low incomes, women, children or elderly people are disproportionately affected by transport-related emissions, although they contribute comparatively little to the stress caused by transport. In addition, households with high incomes receive proportionally greater benefit from environmentally harmful transport subsidies such as a company car privilege. These subsidies should therefore be abolished and scarce public space should be redistributed in favour of walking, cycling and public transport.
