ELVITEN is live in the Eternal City!

The Comune di Roma and S3Transportation have teamed up to bring ELVITEN to the Eternal City!

The city of Rome is located in the central-western part of Italy and is the capital of Italy and of the Lazio region. It is the most populous city in Italy (with over 4 million residents) and the 4th most populous city in the European Union. Rome is one of the oldest and continuously occupied sites in Europe. Known as the Eternal City, it is a cosmopolitan of globally influential historical, cultural and archaeological heritage.

The municipality of Rome is administered over XV (15) Districts. District IX (located in the South of Rome) will be the location of the ELVITEN demonstrations. Sixty-four percent of the territory of the city is covered in hills, with seventy percent of District IX covered in hills (forty percent slightly highly, thirty percent very hilly). Sixty-eight percent of the city is covered in green areas. Public transportation in Rome consists of bus, metro, railways and trams. Despite limited parking for private transportation, public transportation performs poorly in comparison. During peak times during the week, passengers wait an average of 32 minutes for the bus and 10 to 15 for the metro and tram (respectively). The city also limits the amount of traffic in their four Limited Traffic Zones (LTZ). These zones are only accessible through permit and the cost varies depending on the proximity to the city centre and the type of engine.

The Municipality of Rome is promoting electric mobility via free access to the LTZ and deploying a wide network of charging stations. At the moment there are 118 with an expected increase to 300 in the near future. ELVITEN brings 60 eBikes to District IX to promote integrated and sustainable mobility. There will be 8 e-Hubs located in the IX Town Hall, which are innovative charging stations that also allow parking of the eBikes. There are some stands located near the Eur Laurentina and Eur Magliana metro stations, along with other strategic areas of the IX Municipality (such as Via di Acqua Acetosa Ostiene, Guiseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa or Adrea Meldola, Fonte Meravigliosa). The booking of the eBikes are done through the ELVITEN app, which provides free testing of the EL-Vs with approved and registered helmets and license. In Rome, ELVITEN targets owners, sharers and delivers.

ELVITEN al FIA Smart Cities Forum ospitato a Roma

Il 12 aprile 2019, Roma ha ospitato la terza edizione del FIA Smart Cities Forum, una serie di conferenze ad alto livello per discutere di come attori privati ​​e pubblici possano guidare i nuovi cambiamenti nel campo della mobilità.

In onore della prima gara di Formula E a Roma, personaggi di spicco in materia di sviluppo e sostenibilità si sono riuniti per condividere le loro opinioni sul futuro della mobilità urbana nelle città in rapida crescita. Tra gli argomenti discussi in merito alle sfide attuali che le città devono affrontare nel campo della mobilità urbana vi sono il traffico, l’inquinamento, la mancanza di mobilità e le scarse misure di sicurezza.

Il tema dell’evento è stato “Innovazione nella città eterna” e si è svolto presso il padiglione E-Motion, circuito di Formula E.  Il Forum ha visto la partecipazione di diverse personalità tra cui il Andrew McKellar (Segretario Generale per la Mobilità e il Turismo Automobilistico, FIA), Alejandro Agag (CEO di Formula E Holdings) e Virginia Raggi (Sindaco di Roma).

Il progetto ELVITEN è stato presentato dal Sindaco di Roma, Virginia Raggi insieme a Linda Meleo, Assessore alle politiche dei trasporti, Dario D’Innocenti, Presidente del IX Municipio, e Alessandro Drago, Assessore comunale alla mobilità. Roma, come città pilota del progetto europeo ELVITEN, sperimenterà la condivisione di e-bike per promuovere la mobilità integrata e sostenibile. Saranno disponibili 78 biciclette elettriche, prenotabili attraverso l’App dedicata. 8 e-Hub verranno posti nel Municipio Roma IX, ovvero stazioni di ricarica che consentiranno anche il parcheggio della bicicletta. Altri stand saranno situati vicino alle stazioni della metropolitana Eur Laurentina e Eur Magliana, insieme ad altre aree strategiche del Municipio Roma IX (come Via di Acqua Acetosa Ostiene, Guiseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa o Adrea Meldola, Fonte Meravigliosa). Le biciclette saranno disponibili per più di un anno, fornendo un veicolo ecologico e funzionale per i viaggi rapidi.
