Berlin TXL offers solutions for the mobility of tomorrow – environmentally friendly, conserving resources, and with a high quality of life for all. Mobility hubs and convenient bicycle lanes make the Schumacher Quartier residential district largely car-free. In the Urban Tech Republic’s innovation park, researchers and corporations collectively develop and test new mobility concepts – from vehicle-sharing services, through multi-modal transport of passengers and goods to autonomous driving.
The most important transfer points between the various transport modes in Berlin TXL are called mobility hubs. They make the switch from motorized individual travel to bicycles and public transportation more attractive. Mobility hubs link innovative technologies such as autonomous systems with components like bike-sharing, car-sharing, and e-mobility.
Berlin TXL will be embedded into the transportation network of the capital. Already Berlin TXL can be reached by various forms of transport from the rest of the Berlin metropolitan area. The Senate of Berlin is currently examining the possible extension of subway U6 to the Berlin TXL project area. Cyclists can also easily reach Berlin TXL from other parts of the city. From the city center the southern feeder road leads along the A111 to the former site of the airport. Just a few minutes’ ride away, on the southern edge of the Jungfernheide heathland, it crosses the Berlin-Copenhagen Cycle Route. And a new bicycle stretching from Berlin-Mitte to Berlin-Tegel via Schumacher Quartier is planned. Furthermore, a four-lane road north of Schumacher Quartier is planned as a new road connection into Berlin’s city center.
