On 21 and 22 March 2017 the second workshop of the SMART-MR project was held at Palazzo Valentini in Rome, organised by the Metropolitan City of Capital Rome, under the title of ‘Creating a Regional Sustainable Mobility Plan’. Over 40 participants from 8 metropolitan regions – Oslo and Akershus (Norway), Göteborg (Sweden), Helsinki (Finland), Budapest (Hungary), Porto (Portugal), Barcelona (Spain), Ljubljana (Slovenia) and Rome (Italy) – took part in the second workshop of the SMART-MR project.

Partners exchanged their ideas and experiences in working tables focused on two specific topics: ‘Preliminary Actions for Making Sustainable Mobility Plans’ and ‘Improving the Quality of a Sustainable Mobility Plan’. A site visit to Tiburtina Station was organized in collaboration with Trenitalia, RFI (the Italian Rail-road Network) and ATAC (the Public Transport Agency of Rome). The station is a major intermodal node of the City transport system, integrating high-speed and commuter trains, long-distance and city buses, metro, taxis, car sharing services and an exchange parking.

The results of the workshop are presented in the second SMART-MR Newsletter (available at “Library”).
