New mobility service providers such as Uber, Free Now or MOIA are increasingly entering the German market. However, the current legal situation does not currently allow for the approval of forms of mobility that do not follow the example of cabs or public transport.
Therefore, a reform of the passenger transport law has been demanded for several years. On 5 March 2021, the Bundestag passed an amendment to the Passenger Transport Act. The aim is to provide a secure legal framework for new forms of mobility, in particular digital journey brokers and carpooling services, and to facilitate access to the market.
In our GSK Update, we briefly present the most important innovations of the draft law on the reform of the Passenger Transport Act.
