The Importance of the Curbside
The term Curbside Management covers all activities connected with observing, optimising and managing the spaces that stationary vehicles occupy in urban settings.
Curbside Management focuses on ensuring that mobility in a town or city works, i.e. that people have the best possible access to a combination of mobility services that cater to all kinds of needs. These services can take many different forms – sharing platforms for bikes and e-scooters, logistics companies, mass transportation and taxi operators.

Towns and Cities Can Use Curbside Management to Change the Way Spaces are Used for Mobility
With the Curbside Cockpit
The Curbside Cockpit is a multi-client, scalable software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution designed for easy use by municipalities, as it is purely browser-based and requires no additional IT.
What Curbside Cockpit Delivers:
Vehicle study and analysis
The ability to manage how space is used
GDPR-compliant data protection
The strongest possible data security
Application of standards (e.g. MDS)
Together for safe and sustainable
As a new partner of DEKRA DIGITAL, we are establishing a Micro Mobility Safety Standard for mobility providers and municipalities.
Next to organizing shared mobility offers and managing public spaces, we can also help to improve safety within cities with our Curbside Cockpit.
Our new white paper provides an outline on how to sustainably integrate micro mobility within the cityscape:
We are collaboratively working on following topics
Curbside Cockpit in Action:
Working with Sharing Providers
Digital applications are perfect for efficiently using curbside spaces while making sure that all communications are secure
Seeking Municipalities for Pilot Project
We are looking for suitable towns and cities to work with us on developing and testing the applications in our curbside management platform.
Please get in touch to discuss your requirements with us.

The term Curbside Management covers all activities connected with studying, optimising and managing the spaces that stationary vehicles occupy in urban settings.

Parking management focuses solely on the relationship between cars and urban space. Curbside Management takes a broader view of things: It encompasses all forms of mobility when assessing the impact of stationary vehicles.
It approaches the issue holistically: All needs relating to curbside usage are considered, and the resulting findings are then factored in when analysing, planning and managing transportation to reduce traffic congestion. Dedicated delivery spaces, dynamic parking regulations for electric scooters and virtual stops for shuttle services are just some of the measures that can promote the use of alternatives to cars and, at the same time, reduce the difficulties encountered by motorists, such as delivery vehicles blocking a road by double-parking.
Smart city and green city programmes redefine how urban spaces are used. Curbside Management and the related process of creating a digital image (or digital twin) of towns and cities are the ideal tools for achieving this goal. Innovative technologies, above all autonomous vehicles, require that urban spaces be clearly demarcated so the technology can function correctly, thus placing further demands on this setting.
Als Mobilitätsanbieter sehen wir die Straßenkante als längsten Bahnsteig einer Stadt an. Das ist der Ort an dem Mobilität beginnt, endet oder wechselt – und das über eine Vielzahl an Mobilitätsangeboten. Unter DB New Mobility ist es neben der Stärkung der Schiene das Ziel, integrierte Konzepte voranzutreiben, die klassische und neue Mobilitätsformen miteinander verbinden.
As a mobility service provider, we see the roadside as the longest platform in town. It is the place where mobility begins, finishes or changes mode – amid a wide variety of transportation methods. At DB New Mobility, our goal is twofold: strengthen rail transport and promote integrated transportation concepts that combine classic transportation types with new kinds of mobility.
