Comune di Modena has been and will be strongly committed on sustainable mobility. In July 2020, the City Administration adopted the SUMP, a strategic flexible Plan, defining city mobility for the next 10 years, identifying objectives respectively in two (2022), five (2025) and ten years (2030) and foreseeing focused and quick to applied actions, in order to face Covid-19 emergency. To empower all these measures and plans, Modena has been involved in EU projects such as MOVECIT, ZCC or Priority axis 4.
MOVECIT is a project that aims to improve the capacity and behaviour of municipalities‘ staff when travelling to workplaces and changing the modes of transport. All this to lower CO2 and negative effects of car-oriented traffic, by adopting Mobility Plans by municipalities.
ZCC is leading the development of Local Action Plans for the promotion of zero climate neutrality targets. The project also promotes exchange and learning activities on 4 subthemes as “changing transport culture of citizens”
Priority axis 4 has allowed Modena to implement 6 ongoing interventions for implementation and qualification of local cycle tracks. Modena wants to reach the following goals by the implementation of this project in the city: implement strategic actions for mobility and freight logistics; promote walking and a shared sustainable mobility; increase quality, quantity and accessibility of cycle tracks, developing branches for home-school and home-work shifts; and increase local public transport competitiveness, in cooperation with relevant entities and companies.
