What is the goal of the investment?
Reduce the traffic of private cars by at least 10% in favor of public transport by creating 231 new km of networks: 11 km of subways, 85 km of tramways, 120 km of trolley ways and 15 of funiculars. The focus will be mainly on the metropolitan areas of the major Italian cities to reduce the impact on the environment and road congestion.
- Reduce the gaps in standards of living
- Gender equality
Private cars is the most used means of transport in Italy: in 2019, out of 36 million people that are over-18, at least 2 out of 3 people used a car every day. The use of private transportation on total trips is over 60% while public transport is only used in 1 out of 10 trips. The project expects to enhance the rapid mass transit via the realisation of 231 km of networks and envisages that:
• Macrogroup 1-7 interventions in the cities of Rome, Genoa, Florence, Palermo, Bologna and Rimini;
• Macrogroup 2-21 interventions in the cities of Rome, Florence, Naples, Milan, Palermo, Bari, Bologna, Catania, Pozzuoli, Padua, Perugia, Taranto and Trieste.
