ELVITEN IN GENOA
Genoa has a population of about 600,000 inhabitants with a density of about 2,431 inhabitants per km2 and it is the sixth biggest city in terms of population in Italy and it hosts Italy’s most important ports. The territory of the Genoa Municipality is completely characterized by hills and just narrow alluvial flats along the main rivers/brooks, and it is considered by ISTAT as “coastal mountains”.

The public transport system (bus/underground + train) is used for ~27% of the trips but the private car is still prevalent, for ~37% of the trips. Only 0.1% (~1,000) of the total of the daily trips in Genoa are carried out by bicycle. The total vehicle fleet in Genoa consists of ~429,400 vehicles (including cars, buses, motorcycles, trucks) of which 61% cars and 31% motorcycles.
