“Self-driving vehicles are becoming a means of public transport”

Prof. Andreas Knie is one of Germany’s most prominent transport experts. We meet up with him in Berlin, where he has been working at the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB) since 1988. We head to Potsdamer Platz together. During our conversation, he calls for traffic to be reduced in our towns and cities – to give pedestrians and cyclists more space.

Parked cars are a massive waste of space! This will be even more of an issue in the future as our cities need to become more resilient to the consequences of climate change.

If I need a car, I book one through carsharing. What’s interesting is that often I only do that because I communicate best in the car.
