The local road and public transportation network is very well developed. Bonn is in fact a city of short distances. Residential areas are well connected to the city centre.
The city of Bonn has an excellent local public transportation system with trams, subways, city trains, busses, and several Rhine river ferries. Local public transportation services operate very frequently.
In Bonn, the transport sector is the largest source of carbon dioxide emissions and also consumes a particularly large amount of energy. Bonn is to become climate-neutral by 2035. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to reduce motorized individual traffic – above all car traffic. Bonn residents can look forward to better air and less traffic noise.
To achieve this, local public transportation (ÖPNV) must become even more attractive, among other things by using modern vehicles, improving the quality of service and information, and providing barrier-free access.
In addition, Bonn is to become the first city in Germany in which a cable car connects several parts of the city as an integrated part of the public transport system.
