But also to help raise awareness on the issue of air quality and responsible use of energy sources.
On these dates, the local police will ensure compliance with and compliance with this provision, while the councilor for mobility will upgrade the public transport service.
“Ecological Sundays represent important occasions”, declares Councilor Linda Meleo, “to promote sustainable mobility and to make citizens aware of the relationship between pollution and transport. With the plan for electric mobility we are implementing an incisive action to reduce polluting emissions. Like every year, during the block of traffic, the expansion of local public transport is expected, with an increase in bus, tram and taxi rides “.
