The theme of this year's Movimento was «in the night». On 11 November, PostBus welcomed some 190 guests from Switzerland and abroad to the Stade de Suisse in Wankdorf for this year’s mobility forum.
For most people, night-time is a time to sleep. However, for nocturnal creatures such as owls, bats and many insects, and also many people, it is a time to be active. Flexible working hours and shifts and constantly changing leisure activities are resulting in commuter periods extending into the evening and night-time hours.
The interesting speeches by Brigitte Bachelard, Barbara Schwickert, Daniele Ganser and Fredi Gmür explained this very well. After the speech by David Bosshart, guests certainly came away enlightened. Christophe Darbellay, National Councillor for Valais and Peter Füglistaler, Director of the Federal Office of Transport (FOT), gave an interview in which they revealed whether or not they consider themselves to be nocturnal.
Safe, attractive connections among all modes of transport, simple information systems and well-lit paths and infrastructures are very important for night-time public transport . Horgen station was awarded the FLUX golden transport hub prize in this regard.
