The Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications of Chile has implemented a National Electromobility Strategy since 2017, which began with the arrival of the first fleet of electric buses to public transport in the country’s capital.

Through the Metropolitan Public Transport Directorate (DTPM) this strategy has been reinforced, making Santiago the city with the largest fleet of electric buses in the world, outside of China.

This transformation continues in other cities across the country, bringing vehicles of the highest standard and zero emissions to the north and south of Chile.

The Chilean government is carrying out bidding processes for bus fleet renewal and modernisation, seeking to bring in the best technology for fleet management, ticketing and passenger information systems.

The Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport is pressing ahead with the digital transformation and the roll-out of digital infrastructure. Our aim is to take Germany to the digital future and make it fit to master the upcoming challenges. At the same time, we want mobility to be climate neutral. Combating climate change must be considered an all-embracing and cross-sectoral task. We need a strong railway sector, climate neutral heavy goods vehicles, ships and aircraft, attractive and safe cycle paths and footways. As regards passenger cars, it is quite clear that we must advance the changeover to climate neutral mobility. A modern and reliable infrastructure is the basis for social inclusion and prosperity, both in cities and in rural areas, thus creating more opportunities and enabling progress.

Where the future grows. Be part of it.

This year’s motto of the ITF summit concerns each and every one of us. The “transport transition” towards climate protection cannot wait for all other crises to end. Everyone knows that there is always a crisis. Nevertheless, it remains existentially important to face up to the even greater challenges: climate change, the over-consumption of our limited resources, the state of the environment around us. Even if we are confronted with new crises year after year: we are collectively responsible for avoiding a global climate collapse! The challenges are enormous.

The different circumstances in cities and rural areas require different and at the same time closely networked transport systems. What they all have in common is the challenge of minimising greenhouse gases, i.e. moving away from fossil fuels. With the help of digitalisation, solutions are being researched across all transport sectors. The Saxon State government is supporting many projects in this area. At our presentation at the ITF Summit 2024, Saxony will focus on the example of cycling.

The Technical University of Dresden is presenting its extensive research into improving the conditions for cycling. For example, behavioural research in conjunction with various cycling solutions is investigating how cycling can be made safe, easy, comfortable, and attractive. The aim is to encourage people to switch from car to bicycle. Cargo bikes are being further developed in order to reduce car traffic, especially in cities. Where normal bicycles reach their capacity limits, cargo bikes can replace car traffic in a space-saving and ecological way.

Attractive cycling conditions also equates to modern, innovative, handy, and beautiful bicycles. Diamant is a Saxon manufacturer in Chemnitz with a long tradition in this field, but also with innovative ideas. The manufactory will be displaying some of its latest developments and technologies at the Saxon stand.

Improving conditions for cycling is just one of the examples of how Saxony is making transport more environmentally friendly. The endeavours consider all modes and means of transport in the context of all economic sectors and all aspects of society. The challenges are enormous – regardless of current crises. Saxony is keeping an eye on “greening” – and not just in transport.
