Mobility is still characterized by individual transport. Despite changes in recent years, it still influences infrastructure development and results in car-friendly cities. As a result, traffic congestion reveals weaknesses in efficiency and sustainability of this model. This is exacerbated in metropolitan areas with high growth rates and in areas with below-average public transport services. Besides congestion, emission such as pollution and noise are a major problem. In this article, we give explain how this affects communities in general and transport from and to our university campus particularly. We will examine how digital mobility services can extend public and individual transport. We will explore how digital services can promote intermodal transport and lead to more sustainability in mobility. Within that discussion, we present a ridesharing platform and study its influence on directions to and from our campus.
