CIVITAS Case Study - Intelligent transport systems for better urban mobility in Bologna

In dense urban areas, public space is an important resource that often a source of conflict between different users. In recent years, the Municipality of Bologna has deployed a mobility strategy strongly focused on the use of intelligent transport systems (ITS) for traffic regulation and enforcement. These are considered fundamental for an effective implementation of mobility policies. A new platform has been introduced to collect, integrate and elaborate data coming from ITS infrastructure in the city, transmitting information in real time on the traffic situation to citizens.

CIVITAS Case Study - Demand management strategies to improve urban mobility in Bologna

Demand management strategies can reduce traffic through a variety of economic incentives, regulatory measures and modern communication technologies. Strategies for demand versus supply management are one of the arrowheads of Bologna’s current traffic policies. As part of the CIVITAS Initiative, the city has tested a range of demand management measures to explore the merit of different initiatives and share lessons learned. These include access restrictions, road pricing, parking policies and marketing campaigns.

CIVITAS Case Study - Clean vehicles for a cleaner city in Bologna

Sustainable mobility contributes to improved air quality. In addition to measures designed to encourage modal shift, a comprehensive strategy should also consider activities aimed at increasing the use of alternative fuels and cleaner, more energy-efficient vehicles. Within CIVITAS Plus, Bologna has tested innovative strategies and equipment to demonstrate the advantages offered by cleaner vehicles. Results relating to public transport and the private vehicle fleet have been very positive. These measures could represent an effective case for transfer to other cities.
