City of Torino

Country: Italy

City of Torino is a Government organisation in Turin, Italy. In 2011 the Municipality of Turin in Northern Italy approved a new Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) with the aim of reducing traffic congestion as well as greenhouse gases and pollutant emissions within the next 10-15 years. This will be mainly achieved by acting on some strategic projects: the completion of the line 1 metro, the new metro line 2, the rail link between the Torino-Ceres rail and the passerby urban rail, the launch of the suburban railway system, the completion of the tram system, new intermodal nodes and terminals for intercity and suburban buses as well as new cycle paths, pedestrian zones and the reduction of car parking in streets.
