The Municipality of Misano has designed a new network-monitoring and communication/information system for existing cycle and pedestrian paths. The objective is two-fold: 1. Sustainable mobility is achieved by coordinating initiatives, urban choices, communication and monitoring; 2. Enable people to make better use of active mobility.
MOBILITAS Handbook on sustainable mobility:
MOBILITAS project website:
MOBILITAS provided policy-makers and stakeholders with appropriate tools to deal with the effects of intensive tourism. Areas that receive important visitor flows suffer from excessive pressure on their mobility infrastructures and means of transport. This overload entails negative effects in terms of air pollution, noise, health, road unsafety, and therefore loss of city attractiveness. The temporality of the flows is also an aspect that needs to be considered since most of the visits are concentrated in summer or during specific events. The main objective of the project was to elaborate scenarios to enable policymakers and other stakeholders taking the right decisions regarding future transport planning. The general project’s outputs are: (a) the elaboration of Future Mobility Scenarios in 9 MED tourist regions (b) pilot actions using IT tools applied to sustainable tourism mobility and electric and sharing mobility solutions. (c) the elaboration of a Sustainable Mobility Handbook. Tourist cities are in a dichotomy between the benefits of tourist activity and alleviating the associated negative effects. This project provides the needed information and the appropriated tools to understand the effects of different policy choices regarding the environment.
