Enhance public transport from a green perspective. Investing in integrated mobilitya between train, bicycle, car, subway and walking. Promote discounts and special rates to encourage the use of public transport. Increase road safety for cyclists and pedestrians. There are four development levers chosen by the citizens of the metropolises of Milan, Rome and Naples to increase the perceived degree of well-being and improve mobility in the cities of residence, including the hinterland. The report says so ‘Urban mobility seen by citizens’ by Banca Ifis made on a sample of inhabitants of the three Italian cities selected for size, development and geography.

Even today, 39% of journeys in the city take place by car or scooter with a thermal engine: in Naples and its hinterland it reaches 45%. Public transport is the second most used form of transport, accounting for about 23% of journeys (29% in Milan).

From a green perspective, something is also moving on the front of soft mobility: the Banca Ifis study photographs the advance of the use of bicycles, thanks also to the 2020 mobility bonus. 18% of citizens go on two wheels and 50% have increased use compared to two years ago: 37% for physical activity, 27% for reasons of social distancing, 26% to reduce the environmental impact, 22% thanks to the development of cycle paths. For 91% of users, the bike has reduced the use of another vehicle, in 54% of cases it is the car.

“Supporting companies, especially SMEs that invest in the excellence of Italian know-how, has been the mission of Banca Ifis since its inception. We play this role with particular attention to the social and cultural development of the territories in which we operate, convinced that sustainability represents a lever to create value for people and the environment – explains Ernesto Fürstenberg Fassio, vice president of Banca Ifis . With this spirit we conceived the research on urban mobility in Italy with the aim of providing, through a survey of three laboratory cities such as Milan, Rome and Naples, a photograph of the present and identifying new solutions that put citizens at the center, starting from the role of the bicycle in our cities “.

On a scale of well-being that goes from a minimum level of -100 to a maximum of +100, the inhabitants of the three metropolitan cities express an overall average rating of -63 on the state of mobility and only 7% feel fully satisfied. Milan and its hinterland are awarded the best figure, albeit in the negative, equal to -35 with 11% of citizens fully satisfied. In the Neapolitan metropolis the overall judgment stands at -76 with 5% satisfaction. In the rear Rome with, respectively, a -80 and 3%.
