The city has a road network of 8,000 km, divided into motorways/expressways (117 km), main roads or class 1 roads (60 km), other local roads/streets (7.823 km). The extension of the reserved bus lanes in the road network is 112 km, while the roads in which bicycles are allowed account for 240 km. As reserved cycling infrastructures in the city, there are 112 km of green bike paths and 128 km of other bikes paths. Two companies offer scooter-sharing service in Rome in ‘free-flow’ scheme: Ecooltra and ZigZag. The global fleet is composed by 401 vehicles and 241 of them (provided by Ecooltra) are electric and directly recharged by the company. Bike sharing is provided by GoBeeBike, with 1800 vehicles (not electric) in ‘free-flow’ scheme deployed in District I and District IX. Number of 518 electric vehicles are deployed by Share’n go.
In Rome, ELVITEN is present in District IX, which unites business and residential areas with lots of commuting. Although the area is flat, there is almost no cycling infrastructure available.

Help us with collecting opinions on the EL-V experience
The ELVITEN project is conducting an online survey (anonymously) on the real experience of Electric Light Vehicles (EL-V) users and non EL-V users. The survey consists of four sets of questionnaires about people’s real experience with EL-Vs covering two-wheeler, three-wheeler, four-wheeler and non EL-V users. The ELVITEN survey also has a few questions about charging points.
Under Work Package 5, as part of a task led by the University of Leeds, ELVITEN partners are collecting responses on real EL-V driver conditions, including interactions with other traffic participants. Based on the questionnaires’ responses, the user’s experiences will be analysed in detail, especially as regards:
- any situations occurred and resulted from interactions among EL-V users with other traffic participants (e.g. vulnerable road users, heavy vehicles, level of interactions, involved participants, user’s reaction);
- any matters regarded interactions between EL-V users and road infrastructures, environment conditions (e.g. road signs, road markings, visibility conditions);
- the satisfactory level of availability of private and public charge points and technologies;
- any technical problems encountered as regards EL-V;
- the level of comfort of EL-V users and any matters experienced with the control of an vehicle.
The ELVITEN survey findings will be documented per category of EL-V as well as per user age, gender and a cluster.
The deadline for submission is 23 March 2020 and should not take more than 10-15 minutes to complete.
Your contribution to the survey is valuable for implementation of ELVITEN project.
