The Mobilitätsportal Mitteldeutschland collates (real-time) transport information across the state - from road traffic to pedestrian and bicycle traffic, combined with information on rail and bus services. The transport region comprises the whole of Saxony-Anhalt as well as the parts of Saxony and Thuringia that belong to the Mitteldeutscher Verkehrsverbund (MDV). Rail services include nationwide services.
The portal delivers and links routes to cater for different demands and modes of transport. For instance, road traffic information takes into account current traffic conditions including roadworks and closures, and it shows both parking spaces and P+R parking spaces. Pedestrians and cyclists receive routes with information on bicycle stands (B+R) and transfer options to rail and bus services. This results in "inter-modal route management": combined connections for regional public transport, car and bicycle, while taking into account car and bike-sharing schemes.
In addition, there is information on weather conditions, the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles and, depending on the wishes of the user, restaurant and cafés, parks, shopping options or other "places of interest" (POI).
In the future, the portal will be expanded to include additional functions that will offer users a larger selection of mobility services, enable high quality information and allow offers to be booked. The operation of the application is constantly being improved so that users can quickly, comprehensively and intuitively get information about what is happening on the road.
