Neighbourhood-based mobility services (such as car sharing for residents, bicycle rental systems, mobility stations) are currently being discussed in science and practice as new and alternative forms of urban mobility. Alternative mobility services are often considered to have the potential to promote modes other than motorised private transport, relieve infrastructures, and achieve cost advantages in housing construction which can directly affect rents. When combined into an integrated mobility concept, such services can support space-efficient land use and sustainable transport and, ultimately, the well-being of the inhabitants of new residential development. In our contribution, we want to present and discuss neighbourhood-based mobility services considering the following questions: - Which different mobility services and measures exist to foster sustainable mobility in residential areas? - What challenges and opportunities are related with implementing mobility services in residential areas? - What are the potential impacts of mobility services on transport and space-efficient land-use? We present experience and assessments of three stakeholder groups involved in the implementation of mobility services in new residential neighbourhoods: public administration, housing companies and private planning offices. The results are based on a case study in a new residential area at the outskirts of Berlin, Germany, and a Germany-wide expert survey with around 200 participants. The findings show that a wide range of measures in different action fields, including public transport, sharing mobility, logistics, and information is necessary to enable residents to be mobile without their own car. In the view of the experts, the development of cycle paths and cargo bike sharing contributes most to traffic reductions. Furthermore, reducing car parking space is assessed to have the highest positive impact on space efficiency. With our contribution we want to discuss how neighbourhood-based mobility services can contribute to sustainable urban mobility, space-efficiency and thus the well-being of the inhabitants.
