The metropolitan city of Bologna (CMBO) is a supra-municipal metropolitan authority which comprises just over1 million inhabitants and 55 municipalities. It is an important agricultural, industrial and financial centre, and is also one of the most affluent cities in Italy. Bologna is an urban node of the Scan-Med corridor which is crossed by the national railway with the railway station located in the city centre, the national highway crossing the whole metropolitan territory, the Bologna-Borgo Panigale airport; and finally the interport. CMBO has, as one of the first cities in Europe, an integrated SUMP-SULP (adopted in November 2019). All Living Labs will engage in knowledge exchange and replication activities with Bologna to learn how they can combine mobility planning for passenger and logistics (SUMP-SULP learning process), establishing successful public-private partnerships for financing sustainable urban mobility measures. CMBO will in MOVE21 continue to develop 30 mobility hubs to promote active and sustainable mobility, and integration with logistics (e.g. parcel lockers), particularly in the locations of Castel San Pietro and Vergato. Replication solutions will focus on passenger mobility, regulation and governance, communication and citizen engagement, incentivise active mobility, launch of the mobility hubs with innovative services (e.g., electric mobility and electric vehicles recharging spots, bike or car sharing stations, new stations for bike parking, rental and repair, etc.
