Milan has one of the highest rates of car ownership and traffic pollution in Europe so the authorities have committed to implement the so-called Open Streets Plan (Strade Aperte) which will convert 35 kilometres of roads into cycling and pedestrian lanes. Part of this move is the collaboration between the city’s Mobility and Environment Agency (AMAT) and the French tech start-up Vianova aimed at the creation of a digital platform that will gather all shared mobility services under one roof for improved accessibility and management.
Decarbonising mobility with bold initiatives and actions is now one of the confirmed missions of the European Union on its road to achieving climate neutrality. These efforts are channelled through the EIT Urban Mobility programme which supplies expertise, support and funding to participating cities and industry stakeholders.
In this case, Vianova received 45,000 euros from EIT Urban Mobility, back in October 2020, in order to develop a functional digital platform for the city of Milan. As part of this pilot project, the start-up will work closely with more than 17 mobility operators (among them Cityscoot, Voi, Dott, Lime, Ubeeqo) and with AMAT in order to study, analyze and design the centralized platform.
