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

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.
