South Tyrol is an extremely popular tourist destination located in the splendid setting of the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and just a stone’s throw from nearby Austria. The region has an incredible variety of nature with typical Alpine landscapes and wide valleys covered with vineyards and apple trees.
The autonomous province of Bolzano is known for being at the forefront for “green” orientation: with 64.4 km of cycle paths per 100 kmq, the use of hybrid and electric busses on urban public transport lines and huge investments in modernising the railway lines place it head and shoulders above the rest of Italy. The region aims to become a sustainable Alpine mobility model by 2030 by implementing strategies that include the reduction of private traffic, the spread of electric mobility and the introduction of multimodal transport.
The MOBSTER project is part of a context of policies and incentives aimed at strengthening sustainable mobility in South Tyrol. Increasing the number of electric vehicles and enhancing charging infrastructure will contribute to improving the tourist experience for the numerous guests who visit the area.
