"New ways of mobility must be tackled without fear and be well prepared. It is therefore important to know and understand one's own environment and other influencing factors."
"Only together will we be able to create a sustainable and affordable mobility system. Cooperation is not just a catchword here, but the central and formative element."
"Forward-looking forms of mobility and concepts not only need more technology, but also a willingness for new things and experimental spaces to be able to experience them."
