The Ninth International Cities for Mobility Congress will take place under the title "New mobility and the transformation of cities" on 17-19 June 2018 at Stuttgart City Hall. The event is addressed to municipal practitioners, decision makers, researchers, entrepreneurs and initiatives from civil society and combines presentations with practical activities, such as trainings, interactive workshops, excursions and contact forums.

Over 250 decision makers, professionals and scientists from over 30 countries world-wide will meet in June at the 9th International Cities for Mobility Congress. The event will focus on mobility trends and their influence on creating livable public spaces in cities, tackling especially the importance of mobility experiments and innovations with measures for the benefit of citizens as well as a careful design and use of public space that prioritizes sustainable modes of transport. Further topics that will be discussed at the congress are new concepts for the development of public transport services (such as on-demand mobility), innovations in city logistics and the expansion of shared transport models (car/bike sharing, ride sharing).

The Cities for Mobility Congress has a very practical focus and puts emphasis rather on the direct exchange between participants and further cooperation than on a huge number of presentations.


Three parallel sessions will take place on Monday, 18 June in the afternoon.

Session 1: The city as laboratory for mobility innovations and experiments

Session 2: New mobility – a challenge for urban planning

Session 3: Smart traffic and less pollution with innovative city logistics

Participants will enjoy a special framework program which will be offered by City of Stuttgart in cooperation with the Public Transport Company (SSB) which is celebrating this year its 150th anniversary. A poster exhibition and a carefully seleceted mix of interesting mobility site visits in Stuttgart complete the program. A multimodal public transport trip, a tour with electric bicycles and a tour along the typical "Stäffele" stairs of Stuttgart are just some of the exciting activities outside the congress area that will take place.
