Public transport

The Ministry of Transport is an advocate for an improved bus, tram and train system. The goal is to double the number of passengers by 2030. Metropolitan and peripheral areas offer a huge amount of potential.

Baden-Württemberg is proud of its outstanding transport links with its well-developed road network. The days of increasing traffic figures are slowly coming to an end, which is partly due to demographic changes.

Cycling traffic

The bicycle is the modern and flexible answer to a variety of current social challenges such as air pollution control, noise, traffic jams and health issues due to lack of exercise. Therefore, the Ministry of Transport systematically supports cycling traffic as a key aspect of future mobility.

Traffic Safety

The Traffic Safety Screening (TSS) is part of the road safety concept.  A tool such as the TSS is necessary to meet the requirements of the EU safety policy for road traffic infrastructure as well as the "Vision Zero" goal in Baden-Württemberg.
