Corona changes (almost) everything

While Düsseldorf is removing its ecological lanes in connection with the pandemic, the huge no-driving zone in Stuttgart remains.

Düsseldorf is suspending its three environmental lanes with immediate effect. This was confirmed by the state capital in response to inquiries from, among others, the Rheinische Post.
The reason for this is quickly identified: in times of the coronavirus, which can cause the lung disease Convid 19, there is no direct incentive to use public transportation. After only a few days, it becomes clear that there is no need for it at all: thinned-out passenger numbers, whether in trams, underground and suburban trains or even buses. In addition, the frequency of public transport in the entire metropolis has been adjusted, with some buses running on a weekend rhythm.

In Stuttgart, the above-mentioned measures, as in Düsseldorf or elsewhere, are of course already being considered.
However, the ban on diesel vehicles is still in place, as a spokesman for the city hall confirmed earlier this week.
