German Mobility Panel

German Mobility Panel

Longitudinal study on the travel behavior of the population

Transport policy and transport planning require constantly updated information on traffic events and the travel behavior of the population. On the basis of such information, the transport infrastructure can be designed to meet people's needs - today and in the future.

The German Mobility Panel (MOP) has been collecting this necessary information every year since 1994 - for example, when, for what purpose and by which means of transport people travel in Germany. To this end, households are surveyed on their travel behavior in everyday life and on their use of cars. With this information, they make an important contribution to the sensible design of transport systems.

25 years German Mobility Panel

As part of the "Verkehr in Zahlen" series of events organised by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure to mark 25 years of the German Mobility Panel on 28th and 29th November 2019, in-depth insights were provided into the processes of collecting, processing and using the data as well as selected research results.
