Pisa

Pisa, one of Italy’s most visited by tourists in Italy, is the major airport hub in Tuscany and one of Italy’s centers of excellence in science and technology with three universities and many technology businesses. With more than 200.000 habitants in the urban area and over 300.000 monthly tourists, Pisa’s historic city centre was facing a dramatic increase in congestion. Due to the structure of the city increasing congestion impacted not only the immediate city center, but also major ingress and egress points.

With the goal of reducing traffic to sustainable levels without harming the local economy, Pisa decided to introduce a congestion fee for the city center and major traffic roads. Due to the various different necessities of a highly tourist focussed infrastructure, the system for the congestion zone had to be highly variable in configuration covering not only the regulation of basic ingress and egress traffic, but allowing to regulate even time for certain categories of traffic (tourist busses, city logistics, habitants,…).
