In research on the universally networked, new mobility, social consequences are usually neglected. The IZT therefore developed three scenarios from which social consequences can be derived. Digital platforms that integrate and seamlessly network old and new mobility providers are currently in vogue. The technical term is "Mobility as a Service" (MaaS). Especially with these concepts, the previous ignoring of justice aspects could prove risky, as enormous social consequences are to be feared. In addition, all policy approaches that promise more sustainability are increasingly being critically questioned with regard to their social justice aspects. Political strategies to promote the new mobility will also be confronted with this demand and should consequently include justice issues at an early stage.

While the transport and spatial system, ecological and economic aspects of the new mobility have already attracted some attention, there is a lack of in-depth analyses of the social consequences. This is due to a tendency of transport sciences to be blind to the aspects of social sustainability. In the case of new mobility and the concepts of "Mobility as a Service" (MaaS), however, this shortcoming is particularly risky, as their social knock-on effects are likely to be enormous. In addition, every form of transformative policy approach will have to be considered more strongly with regard to its social justice aspects in the future. Conceivable policies to promote New Mobility will also be confronted with this requirement and should therefore deal with these questions at an early stage.

The IZT analysed the current research situation on the topic and developed three scenarios to derive social consequences. Based on the results and the compilation of initial recommendations for action and design for companies, trade unions and politics, the discursive further development and anchoring in sub-publics is being worked on.
