LINKING TERRITORIES: LONG TO SHORT DISTANCE CO-MODALITY
The Municipalities of Parma and Reggio Emilia took part in a number of CIVITAS thematic cooperation activities and are also active members of the Political Advisory Committee (PAC).
In parallel with the next PAC meeting, on Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th July 2016, practitioners from other CIVITAS cities will see and learn on how the two cities successfully connected their urban areas with rural/sub-urban territories and the wide area as a whole to long distance destinations via the new High Speed railway station Mediopadana. A two-days event combining a study tour and a thematic workshop focused on integrated planning of transport interchanges and optimal seamless use of different transport modes and services.
The study tour is organised by CIVITAS WIKI and the Municipalities of Parma and Reggio Emilia. The study tour is free of charge and open to all transport practitioners and professionals. For a limited number of participants CIVITAS WIKI will co-finance travel and accommodation expenses. Priority will be given to city representatives (up to 2 participants per city).
Agenda and practical information will be finalised soon. For more information please visit the event page at
