Abstract

In recent years, the city of Munich has become more crowded due to its strong job market and its popularity as a tourist destination, resulting in a shortage of affordable housing and a strained transport network. It became evident that the city of Munich could not solve these problems alone, and would need close cooperation with neighboring municipalities that considered the various stakeholders. In 2007, this resulted in the formation of the Metropolitan Region of Munich, home to nearly six million people from 27 counties and 6 large cities, and includes 158 participating institutions. In 2009, the TUM Accessibility Atlas was developed for this newly formed region after numerous discussions with a variety of regional stakeholders who described their needs in assessing land-use and transport measures. The major task of this tool was to meet these needs and support this diverse region find a common regional identity.
