German traffic jam capital
Planned Cityaut in Munich: Only 41 percent are for it
Mobile in Germany Munich could get a Cityaut
Site editor Sebastian Viehmann
79 hours of time loss per year: Munich is Germany’s traffic jam capital. Now a city maut is discussed. However, the residents of Munich and the surrounding area cannot really warm up for the idea, especially since residents also have to pay.
This is shown by a representative survey of Puls Marktforschung GmbH that the automobile club "Mobile in Germany" commissioned. From 3. till 8. November 2021, a total of 1100 people were interviewed, 60% living in the city, 40% living in the surrounding area (up to 50 km). "50 % vote against the introduction of a Cityaut in Munich, only 41 % spoke out for this. 9 % have no opinion on this", So the automobile club.
Politics wants the Cityaut
Nevertheless, there seems to be a political majority for the toll. Both the Greens who rule the city in a coalition and the CSU speak out for the Cityaut. Drivers would have to pay six to eight euros a day if they want to move their car within the Munich ring. Not only Munich, commuters would also be affected by this.

"Mobile in Germany"-President Michael Haberland sees the result of the survey as a clear argument against the project. “A Cityaut fuels only the enemy image of the car, whereby drivers in Munich have to struggle with a lack of parking space and immensely high parking fees anyway. One should make traffic more efficient instead of managing a lack", so Haberland. "This winter we saw how the retail trade had to suffer from a disastrous Christmas business, since consumers are increasingly switching to online retailers like Amazon. A CityMaut only strengthens this undesirable effect", Haberland believes.

Maut would also meet residents
Transport experts, on the other hand, emphasize the hoped -for effect of traffic relief. A toll of six euros a day could reduce traffic in Munich by 23 percent, said Oliver Falck, head of the IFO Center for Industrial Economics and new technologies, at the last IAA in September 2021, which took place in Munich. The city would have to collect it from every driver, "without exception, also for residents". The income of 600 million euros a year could be used for local public transport and for compensation payments to low earners.

However, there is a problem that not only has Munich: public transport has become unattractive in Corona times. This is shown, for example, traffic data from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT): "While in 2019, eleven percent of all paths were covered with the typical means of pendulum, tram or train, in winter 2020/21 there were only six percent and eight percent in autumn 2020", So the kit in a current study.
Home Office just to a limited extent
In return, the bicycle traffic is increasing, while car traffic is stagnating – but the bicycle is not an option for commuters from the surrounding area, especially for commuters from the surrounding area. Because, according to the researchers, the home office trend by Corona also benefits city residents: "The workplaces of office workers, whose activities can be done by home without a hand, are mainly in the city centers and can be easily reached by public transport. As a result, the bus and train in particular lost through the home office", So the kit.Munich is considered the German stowed capital. Traffic data show that drivers in the southern German metropolis lose an average of 79 hours a year by waiting in traffic jams. With new bike paths and bus traces, the city government has created additional traffic jam hotspots because the consistent amount of vehicles is now distributed on fewer lanes. One of the nodes at which it keeps balling is the middle ring.
