M29 - The Bus Route of Contrasts by Theresa Rentsch, Julius Troeger, Andre Paetzold, Moritz Klack, David Wendler, Max Boenke
The M29 bus route cuts straight through Berlin. It starts in the villa districts in the west of the city, passes through the troubled inner city areas, and ends in Berlin’s trendiest districts. Voting behaviour, unemployment, income: the interactive application highlights the social differences of Berliners. The Berliner Morgenpost collected and processed data regarding the neighbourhood and local residents for every stop along the bus route. This included: voting behaviour, migration background, age, unemployment, social background, rent increases, break-ins, native Berliners and the number of Airbnb holiday apartments. Brief descriptions and videos explain the most interesting revelations garnered from the statistics.
