ITS European Congress 2020

The ITS European Congress, the largest event entirely dedicated to smart mobility and digitalisation of transport, is organised by ERTICO – ITS Europe.

The ITS European Congress is part of a bigger cluster of ITS Congresses. It is organised in a European city in the years where there is no ITS World Congress in Europe. These events are a strategic opportunity for the transport industry to come together and show the latest innovations, with a slightly different focus for each year.

Copenhagen to increase parking costs up to 100 times for reducing cars in the city

In spring 2020, the Danish Capital is going to increase the prices for resident parking. The current scheme bases pricing on the emissions of vehicles following the logic that fewer emissions equal lower prices. Owners of most economic diesel and petrol cars were obliged to pay only 10 kroner for an annual parking ticket. This price is to increase to 1,000 kroner increasing 100 times. Vehicles with still low emission ratings see a doubling of the price levels from 2,000 to 4,000 kroner. Even electric and hydrogen cars will have to pay 200 kroner with the reform of the pricing policy.

Offering sustainable mobility services to cruise ship passengers in Italy - Offrire servizi di mobilità sostenibile per i passeggeri delle navi da crociera in Italia

When a cruise ship docks at a port city, thousands of passengers and crew members disembark to tour the local area. In terms of mobility planning, the number of visitors may be minimal in comparison to the number of residents, but the concentration of visitors in such a short space of time and space is often a challenge.

The recorded webinar below (in Italian) will show you what the Italian cities of LOCATIONS (Trieste, Ravenna e Livorno) are planning in order to manage this issue properly.

Study suggests significant benefits from Barcelona's superblocks

A recent study by the health institute BCNecologia, based in Barcelona, suggests that there are potentially significant benefits to be delivered from Barcelona’s ambitious plans for applying the superblock model. The model effectively takes urban space away from the car and gives it to people, enabling an increase in walking and also providing more space to socialise. The superblocks also have better cycling and public transport links, to replace car journeys.
