Senate revises Berlin mobility law

Manja Schreiner

Manja Schreiner (CDU), Berlin Senator for Mobility, Transport, Climate Protection and the Environment, speaks at a press conference after a meeting of the Berlin Senate.

The Berlin Senate wants to revise the mobility law in force since 2018 in a number of places. Transport Senator Manja Schreiner (CDU) presented the new draft to the Senate on Tuesday.

Among other things, the law is to be supplemented by a section on commercial transport, as already planned by the preceding senate, Schreiner said after the senate meeting. Berlin's Governing Mayor Kai Wegner (CDU) added that the Senate wants to have the amendment to the mobility law discussed at the next plenary session on Thursday in the House of Representatives.

New exchange platform for commercial transport

Schreiner announced that the Senate Department for Urban Mobility would develop a guideline for determining the need for delivery and loading traffic areas. In addition, "an exchange platform for commercial transport" is to be used for exchanges between the business community and the responsible bodies in politics and administration. Overall, the chapter on commercial transport has hardly been changed. The current senate has dispensed with the chapter on New Mobility, which had been planned by the previous senate. The transport administration will deal with this in the fall.
