Urban Road User Charging Online Knowledge Base

Network & Environment

Since the IT system was installed, the number of accesses has reduced by 25% in the L.T.Z., by 3% in the three main streets of the city centre and by roughly 70% for unauthorised use of bus lanes. Moreover, thanks to the introduction of these new pricing initiatives, a reduction of 27% of freight operators permits and 10% of total permits (operators plus citizens) to access in the LTZ has been achieved.






Inside the LTZ there is another area called “T” (see in yellow in the figure below), very important for public transport; in this area the restriction are higher than in LTZ and also here the access is controlled by IT system.



In addition to access restriction for non authorised vehicles, the deployment of these IT systems has the following 2 key goals:

  • the improvement of Urban Public transport (UPT);
  • the introduction of pricing policies which will reduce existing access permissions as foreseen by the new Freight City delivery Plan.
