Pilot city: Milan (Italy)
The City of Milan has a population of 1.4 million of inhabitants, developed on the 182 km² of surface, generating a density of over 7,000 inhabitants/km². The Milan mobility is one of the most complex systems in Italy because it satisfies a demand of over 4,2 million of city users, coming from the Metropolitan Area and other parts of Italy too.
The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan of Milan shows that every day in Milan Area 5,678,000 trips occur, 56% of these within the Urban Area and the rest between Milan and its Metropolitan Area.
The modal share in the Milan Area is the following: mass transit (57%), cars (30%), bicycles (6%), and scooters (7%). In the metropolitan Area the situation is different: cars (58%), mass transit (37%), scooters (4%), and bicycles (1%).
The motorisation rate in Milan is 51 vehicles per 100 inhabitants, in a constant reduction since 2003 but it is not enough if we compare the data to the other European and world cities with similar dimensions.
