Within the framework of the project "MoLa.opt - Optimizing rural mobility", possibilities for optimizing transport services in rural areas, with a focus on public transport services, were investigated. At the conference, the most interesting results of the project were presented and a variety of impulses from experts on the challenges and approaches of mobility in rural areas were presented. The Frankfurt UAS, the RheinMain University of Applied Sciences and the Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund GmbH (RMV) have examined the challenge of ensuring mobility in rural areas in view of demographic change.
