The participants agreed unanimously that improvements in urban mobility can only be achieved through establishment of integrated systems. Examples of such systems, presented in a course of the workshop, have shown both challenges and opportunities of an integrated approach to mobility. The topic of cycling promotion was also raised as well as the issues of social integration and urban freight traffic. Last, but not the least, participants from Germany contributed significantly to the disputes about air quality in cities and cooperation between various transport associations. Thus, all involved got a chance to learn from each other’s experience.

Success factors of Good Practices include good coordination among actors, high-quality initial analysis, political will and readiness to act as well as long-term vision. What is also essential is awareness about solutions implemented in other cities. Giving the abovementioned, participants of the workshop made a few recommendations to start with:
- publishing and spreading of cities’ experience;
- good demand Analysis;
- close cooperation and coordination with other actors.
Such factors as long-term vision and continuity, consistency of policies were considered to remain challenges.

During the excursion, participants of the workshop got a chance to learn more about the Ecozone in Toluca and city’s cycling network. In addition, trying special exercises such as walking blindfold with a white cane, they could experience how people with disabilities feel on city’s streets and in transport as well as what inconveniences they face every day.

By the end of the workshop, three working groups developed four projects ranging from on-site consulting to designing a completely new street and implementing some public transport related measures.
