What is the future of logistics and mobility – by rail, road, air or water? Hypermotion brings together experts from the various segments and sectors in Frankfurt am Main from 20 to 22 November 2017. For the solution is to be found in new, connected, integrated and multi-modal systems – on an interdisciplinary basis.

`NUMBR1 Award` presentation at Hypermotion
During Hypermotion, `Nahverkehrs-praxis` local-transport magazine will present the first `NUMBR1 Award` at the stand of the German Ministry for Transport and Infrastructure, the co-patron of the event together with the State of Hesse, at 17.30 hrs on 21 November 2017. The presentation will be made by Undersecretaries of State Rainer Bomba and Mathias Samson. The award is given for solutions and concepts for sustainable urban mobility, which have a decisive impact on the future of local public transport. The target groups for the award include municipalities, regions, transport companies and associations and the transport industry.
`More Trains for the Region`
Another highlight is the new `More Trains for the Region` information campaign, which will be launched by a press conference on the forecourt of the `Festhalle` between 11.30 and 12.30 hrs on 20 November 2017.
Hardly any other region in Germany is developing as rapidly as the Rhine-Main region around Frankfurt. Today, around 5.5 million people live, work and travel there every day. Moreover, the forecasts call for further growth. To ensure the mobility of all these people and an efficient local and long-distance public-transport service, the German government, the State of Hesse, the City of Frankfurt, the regional transport authority (RMV), and German Rail (DB) have developed a joint master plan – Frankfurt RheinMainplus.
It is against this background that the participants are launching the new `More Trains for the Region` information campaign, to explain the advantages offered by Frankfurt RheinMainplus and how the projects are to be implemented. The stated aim of the campaign is to inform people about the joint offensive for a future-oriented rail infrastructure.
