Mobilitas – MOBIlity for NearLy-zEro CO2 in MedITerranean Tourism DestinAtionS
Programme INTERREG MED 2014-2020
Topic/Keywords Environment / Urban mobility, Air quality, Low carbon, Energy efficiency, Transport
Project MOBILITAS involve 7 Med countries / 10 regions, affected by intense tourism flows with great
pressure on transport infrastructure and mobility. These flows are concentrated during summer, but
in certain areas, traffic peaks also in other months, due to fairs and congresses. In some cities, due
to geographical and spatial premises, even daily mobility presents a challenge without including
visitors’ factor. All areas face congestion, with negative effects in terms of air pollution, CO2
emission, noise, health, un-safety roads, and loss of cities’ attractiveness. To tackle this situation,
MOBILITAS elaborates different scenarios to enable policy makers and stakeholders better
understanding effects of different choices on improving environmental quality as a whole of
Within a common transnational approach, pilot testing actions range from soft to hard measures:
• Sustainable tourism mobility policies: definition of political strategies & documents to
reinforce existing POLICIES or start them ex-novo (e.g. elaboration of Sustainable of
Urban Mobility Plans).
• Reduction of traffic by electrical vehicles and sharing transport solutions: re-loading
electrical stations, e-cars, e-scooters & e-bikes, e-buses, etc.
• Information Technology tools & solutions for tourists/residents (APPs, software…) to
facilitate decongestion of tourist traffic.
Role of Municipality of Piraeus
Municipality of Piraeus will participate in the project activities, which aim at:
• Improving mobility within the city, the distribution of traffic by type (% car, bicycle, walking,
train, etc.),
• providing better soft mobility services (eg bicycle rental system, bike distribution, car
rental system),
• improving coordination between the port and the city in terms of transport used by tourists
upon arrival and their movement within the city and its main attractions, such as visiting
the Acropolis,
• improving the present situation and initiatives to change the attitude regarding the low
carbon emissions mobility (eg campaign aimed to pronounce hotels free bikes to their
guests and better coordination of services for the transfer to the port and airport ).
