Challenge / Goal
Like all cities, Milan is facing an unprecedented rise in traffic volume as a result of population and economic growth. On top of this, its urban area is one of Europe’s largest, with over four million people. It also has exceptionally high car ownership, 51 for every 100 inhabitants, as well as significant levels of air pollution. To significantly reduce congestion and emissions, a comprehensive policy was needed that would not only offer attractive sustainable transport options but also promote new behaviour patterns.
Milan’s shared e-mobility measures include:
- E-charging points: in the city 10 new e-car recharging stations are under construction with 60 e-charge points (including 20 fast ones)
- E-cars: 2 e-vehicles are available for condominium car-sharing and dedicated recharging points
- E-bikes: 150 new e-bikes with child seats have been inserted, with 7 new bike-sharing stations financed by the project and a further 7 financed by the City of Milan
- E-logistics: 11 e-vehicles (including 2 cargo bikes) are available with related recharge points for goods delivery in the area
- Smart parking: 175 parking places are integrated with sensors to monitor illegal parking (for logistics, disabled people, no-parking areas and mobility areas)
