Tram passengers can take advantage of tim hubs and combine travel by public transportation with (e-)car-sharing vehicles and rental car services.
‘tim’ has been out and about on the streets of Linz since September 2, 2019. A third tim location (also known as a tim mobility hub) officially opened at the JKU on November 11, 2019. "tim mobility hubs" are at the heart of the tim program, allowing public transportation passengers to take advantage of bicycle parking spots, stationary (e-)car-sharing services, public e-charging stations, and rental car services for longer journeys. The goal is to connect public transportation with individual transportation and replace either one's own vehicle or to make it easier to do without a (second) car.
JKU Rector Meinhard Lukas remarked: "Sustainability is part of JKU's image - in education, when conducting research, and on campus. Examples include supplying solar energy, switching over to organic food at the cafeteria, and the mobility concept. The tim hub at the JKU closes a gap between public transportation and personal transportation. We hope that this will encourage even more JKU employees to switch to using Linz public transportation. At the same time, I hope that over the coming years we will have many more accessibility points at the JKU to use public transportation to and from the city center."
