On top of implementing LAST MILE offers in rural areas is the long-term financial viability by regional transport policy to encourage municipalities and institutions. The Regional Management East Tyrol decided to switch the focus to the "integrated regional development strategy East Tyrol". It is within the CLLD-approach (community-led local development) - i.e. local development carried out by the local population - linked to the ERDF-OP. The results of the LAST MILE project have already been involved into the regional development strategy. The regional strategy provides a funding opportunity and is intended to increase the implementation of flexible mobility projects in rural areas like East Tyrol. Additionally, the recommendations which directly arise from the experiences analysed in the LAST MILE project have a strong influence in the further designing process of upcoming strategies on regional level.
