Status of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan

In 2006 Perugia drafted up its PUM-Urban Mobility Plan as the baseline of all the mobility strategic choices. The PUM gave great importance to Public Transport System because it represents the strategic starting point to manage parking and circulation issues.
After the PUM approval, the Public Transport reorganization has been the first implemented action, that has taken into account benefits and opportunities, arising from the correct planning of intermodality.
