Good to know...
All current driving bans and further information are available in our Green-Zones App.
Berlin is currently receiving new electronically operated vehicles for its huge bus network. The buses were already ordered in the past calendar year and will be produced by the Polish manufacturer Solaris.
It seems to be part of the good tone these days to postpone negotiations and/or leave us in the dark about the outcome. Latest example of this "trend": Wuppertal
It is one of the most famous streets in Germany: Berlin's Friedrichstrasse. Through a pilot project, the shopping street in Mitte will now be car-free for half a year.
In the fight for clean air, new paths are being taken. For a long time now, people have no longer wanted to rely exclusively on environmental zones, driving bans or even the unwelcome eco lanes.
New zones and new rules for us, that means a new app update for you:
The outcome of the legal dispute between the Organisation Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH) and several cities in NRW, which is going into the home stretch in the middle of this week, is awaited with excitement.
At the Higher Administrative Court (OVG) in Münster, conciliation talks were held yesterday between the organisation Deutsche Umwelthilfe, the state of NRW and the two cities of Wuppertal and Hagen.
Apart from the traditional feud with Cologne, Düsseldorf's soul is currently not as excited as the environmental footprints that have been active in the state capital since Easter 2019.
Today in NRW and other parts of Germany the so-called fifth season begins: Carnival. If you look to Stuttgart at the moment, you might think that here too, the Jecken have taken over the town hall in carnival tradition.
The citizens of Frankfurt are eagerly awaiting the reopening of the Mainkai these days.
