„Today's responses to climate change, urbanization and digitalization, as well as the energy and mobility revolution, will determine how we live in the future. Taking on the patronage of polisMOBILITY is a logical consequence for us.“
Helmut Dedy, CEO, Deutscher Städtetag
"Digital communities and the mobility of tomorrow: Not only infrastructure, systems and sensors need to be connected, but also the people who use them. Stadt.Land.Digital is looking forward to seeing smart solutions at polisMOBILITY in Cologne - and people who are enthusiastic about these solutions!"
Alex Dieke, Leiter Stadt.Land.Digital
Ministry of Transport of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia
"The future of mobility is digital, connected and, increasingly, driverless. Here in North Rhine-Westphalia we have created an impressive network of scientists, researchers, start-up companies, politicians and public administrators to swiftly capitalise on the opportunities digitalisation offers for better, safer and cleaner mobility. polisMOBILITY is therefore a perfect fit for Cologne. The mobility of the future will be researched, developed and become a tangible reality in North Rhine-Westphalia as quickly as possible. That’s because connected mobility solutions are needed to improve the experience of living in and visiting our cities and our rural and suburban areas.”

"Mobility is one of the central future fields of all cities. As Stadtwerke Köln, we are responsible for urban mobility infrastructure and service offerings for the people in one of Germany's largest metropolises.

We are therefore looking forward to polisMOBILITY as a platform for sustainable and urban mobility, in which we will be happy to contribute our topics and solution approaches."

Alliance for Mobility of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia
"Mobility of people and goods is constantly changing and is in increasing demand. Digitization opens up new mobility options for society and the economy, but also opportunities for quality improvements, effective and efficient processes, and reduced environmental and climate impact. Mobility is equally a prerequisite for social participation and for economic success, growth, prosperity and employment. Mobility must be thought of from the user's perspective."

„We, communes, states and federal government, have a joint goal: sustainable, climate-friendly mobility in the countryside and city.

„Mobility, traffic and infrastructure are of fundamental importance for the functioning of the region and the regionally connected living environment of the people in the Rhineland. It is necessary to align regional traffic to future-proof, sustainable and multimodal mobility concepts. As a dynamically growing region, the Rhineland metropolitan region in the heart of Europe has been focused on an innovative, carbon neutral and digital future of mobility. This requires the maintenance of an efficient road and rail system as well as the expansion of alternative metropolitan-friendly mobility structures.“

Bundesverband Taxi und Mietwagen e.V.
"On Demand Mobility - that's what the taxi has been offering since 1897. Since then, the world has changed - and so has the taxi. And it doesn't stop there. Taxis were developed to meet the mobility needs of people in a world where owning a car was not commonplace. If we now want to return to a world that is not dominated by privately used vehicles, then the taxi can play significant part in the solution. Of course, under new circumstances: digitally connected, emission-free and as an integral part of public transport and urban planning. This is what polisMOBILITY stands for: for thinking outside the box, for the best of all worlds and for mobility of tomorrow. And that's also what taxis stand for."
