Participants wanted for mobility study

The Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Fraunhofer UMSICHT and STOAG are providing free DeutschlandTickets for 3 months in order to analyze how work commuting can become more sustainable and stress-free. The study runs from November to January 2024 and is limited to 100 places.
Many different criteria lead to the decision for or against a means of transport. In order to better understand these influencing factors and to get to the bottom of questions about the increased use of low-emission forms of mobility, various studies on the mobility transition are underway with partners within the region.

Try the DeutschlandTicket for free

As part of the third-party funded project INVITING - funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research - the research team from Fraunhofer UMSICHT and the Bergische Universität Wuppertal, together with STOAG, is investigating how the mobility transition can best be designed for people and the environment. The aim is to scientifically analyze the mobility situation so that more environmentally friendly and stress-free mobility is possible, from which both sides benefit. The study runs from November 1st to January 31st, 2024.

We are looking for participants who drive often, live or work in Oberhausen and have been thinking about trying out the bus and train on the way to work and in their free time for a long time. Study participants receive the DeutschlandTicket from STOAG free of charge for three months. In return, they support the scientific work on the mobility transition by taking part in a monthly survey about their own mobility behavior.

Application is ongoing

Anyone interested can apply to take part in the study until October 22nd to receive one of the 100 free DeutschlandTickets. The 100 free tickets will be awarded through a simple application process. The Bergische Universität Wuppertal collects all applications and selects them based on scientific criteria. The DeutschlandTickets are issued and sent by STOAG. They have a term of three months and then end automatically. Termination is not necessary. All information is available at
