The CAPTN mobility chain is composed of six phases: a decision-making phase and a preparation phase in the run-up to the actual trip, in which the passenger deals with the concrete requirements regarding the preparation of his mobility segment (trip), followed by three mobility phases for the execution of the trip, which are to be considered independently of each other but are mutually dependent if different means of transport are used in combination, and a follow-up trip phase with the possibilities for planning the follow-up trip as a transition to the next phase 1 of the mobility chain.

The mobility chain includes local public transport services such as ferry, bus and if necessary tram in the future, which are capable of moving large numbers of people. CAPTN also considers sustainable forms of individual transport such as pedestrians, bicycles or scooters, but also sharing and mobility-on-demand offers, especially bike, car and ride sharing. In this way, CAPTN develops attractive alternatives to classic motorized private transport with one‘s own car.
