The integration of new services for ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) into existing transportation systems, and the reliable change of users mobility routines as a conse-quence of new service interventions, is a very critical challenge for city administrations, mobility planners, and service providers. It means not less than breaking and adjusting existing users’ mobility habits; such as individual routines and applied services. In the project STREETLIFE a gamification approach was used to introduce new mobility ser-vices in three individual pilot sites and to convince users to leave their “mobility comfort zone”. The article will pay special attention to the pilot performed in Berlin. Here, an in-ter-modal route planning App for daily mobility combined a first “safe” cycling router for Berlin with a gamification approach and crowd sourcing routines for assessing, evaluat-ing, and finally improving cycling safety. From March to May 2016, with the Berlin STREETLIFE game “Berlin BikeRider” user collected virtual points for participating in a game and competed for both virtual and real incentives. For all cycling trips, crowd sourced information on perceived cycling safety was collected by an on-trip survey. Users were able to assess safety matters of this individual trip and to add dangerous spots in a Berlin city map. In consequence, not only the applied gamification approach and its impacts on main impact categories, i.e. the traffic system performance and carbon emissions, were evaluated. Special attention was laid on an analysis of crowd sourced data on cycling safety and on its comparison against existing public data sets on cyclists’ accidents, provided by the Berlin Senate Department of Urban Development in cooperation with the Policy of Berlin. The joint analysis of both datasets allowed an evaluation and a completion of public statistics on cycling safety for Berlin – and in final consequence an improvement of data on cycling safety. It also assessed the concept of “Fahrradstras-sen”, dedicated cycling streets. This paper describes the project, the Berlin pilot and the main results of data analysis while putting main emphasize on gamification’s impact on mobility behavior and on cy-cling safety assessment. In addition, it also provides brief results on impacts on mile-ages and emissions (here CO2).
