Ron Johnston designed an facilitated a workshop to refine the analysis of the key factors shaping future urban mobility. Key observations he made in summarising the workshop included:

– The need to expand the concept of the ‘slow city’

– Externalities need to be re-thought and internalise

– For a city to be effective, governance and funding need to be city-driven

– Accessibility is more important than mobility

– The deep cultural hold of motorised transport

– Freight transport is a growing issue in the Internet Age

– The need to transform the view of public assets and their dynamic nature; who owns what?

– Land-use and transport planning need to be integrated
