Acceptability

After almost a year of Ecopass implementation, people now begin asking to the Municipality whether or not making definitive the measure. Some associations like Legambiente, Genitori Antismog, Ambiente Milano and VAS Lombardia have supported a survey about a possible extension of Ecopass. The first results (the survey is still open) showed that 38% of respondents were in favour of an expansion of LTZ, the 31%, instead, was satisfied with the actual road pricing scheme but they would like to enlarge the charging also to the most polluting motorcycles and mopeds, just 18% would like to charge also Euro3 gasoline and Euro4 Diesel cars today exempt from Ecopass charge, and finally the 7% would like to increase the tariff in force. The fact that no one was against the Ecopass is because the survey aimed at understanding people’s opinions, but in the meantime all the questions were formulated in a way that when answering the interviewed could only comment upon how realize the most effectives charging modalities to reduce private cars use. There was not a direct question on whether or not continue to charge the city center access.
