Abstract: Mobility and transportation are undergoing change. Challenges due to increasing traffic, mobility demand and cost are emerging, while new technologies and mobility services are being developed. In this transformation process, key actors in policy and planning are under pressure to address these issues with limited budgets. Integration of spatial and transport planning is often mentioned as a solution. The paper argues that this integration requires a context perspective suggesting an approach. Based on the state of the art combined with empirical analysis on the case of Switzerland, connections between land use, mobility behavior and socio-economic aspects are analyzed. Based on the results the paper provides ideas for starting points for the requested integration of spatial and transport planning. Key drivers for (mobility) behavior which would have to be addressed are discussed. It is argued that shaping the transformation successfully requires socio-political innovation, creating new visions and rethinking mobility in order to provide sustainable mobility as a basis for a future society and economy.
