Mobility

Mobility across the Bildungscampus

In the future, the Bildungscampus of the Dieter Schwarz Stiftung in Heilbronn shall not only be perceived as an innovative learning and research location - it should rather provide active support to the City of Heilbronn on its way to climate neutrality. To this end, a sustainability strategy is currently being developed on the campus, primarily to reduce emissions of climate-damaging CO2 and to become completely CO2-neutral by 2030. In addition to energy management, mobility – and in particular motorized individual transport – plays a major role on the path to a climate-neutral Bildungscampus.

To the press release of the Dieter Schwarz Foundation (in German)

Towards a climate-neutral Bildungscampus

For an inner city campus in particular, the connection to the public transport network and the choice of means of transport for each individual are a central issue. Here, the CO2-intensive individual traffic represents an important adjustment screw in the conception of the sustainability strategy. At this point, a rethinking must be achieved and new ways found. For the Bildungscampus, these are clearly in environmental and climate protection. One building block for actively shaping the transition to environmentally friendly mobility alternatives will be the introduction of parking fees.

About half of the employees and students live within a radius of about ten kilometers from the Bildungscampus. This makes them potentially the right target group for sustainable mobility solutions, such as local public transport, sharing services or bicycles. In addition to ZEAG's car-sharing service, students and employees can also rent a so-called CampusRad free of charge on the education campus, for example to commute between the Sontheim campus and the Bildungscampus. Other measures include the connection to the general cycle path network in Heilbronn and optimizing the cycle path that connects the Sontheim campus of Heilbronn University with the Bildungscampus.

Mobility management

Since April 2020, a mobility manager has been installed at the LOGWERT competence center at Heilbronn University, thus investigating mobility issues at the Bildungscampus. The position is funded by the Dieter Schwarz Foundation, with the aim of developing a cross-university concept for mobility management on campus. The mobility manager offers regular consultation hours in which questions, ideas and suggestions can be placed.

To the Bildungscampus by Bus & Train

There are a number of public transport stops around the Bildungscampus - and Heilbronn's main train station can also be reached by bike in 7 minutes or on foot in 15 minutes.  The city center, with its centrally located stops around the town hall, is even a little closer.

Good to know: The HNV timetable data is now also available on Google Maps.  Using the route planner function, it is possible to plan the route by bus and quite simply also by public transport. All you have to do is enter the starting point and destination of the route.
