10 agreements for discounts and price reductions on shared means of transport, which the University of Turin offers to its
students, have been signed.
These agreements are the result of the inclusive project Muoviti bene con UniTo (Move well with the University of Turin),
which was activated in 2021 to create an offer that tries as much as possible to meet the needs of the university community and
encourages a real change in students’ mobility habits towards sustainable transportation.
The Muoviti bene con Unito project comprised several phases: after the university had searched for the best urban transportation experts in Turin, it issued a call for tenders to ask transportation experts to come up with the best offer at a subsidized rate for the community of the university. After having received and analysed the proposals, the Green Office and the Mobility Manager wrote a questionnaire to identify those elements that the university community considered most relevant to encourage and increase the use of shared means of transport. Over 4,000 people, including students and university employees, expressed their preferences and the results of this questionnaire were the subject of a public meeting between universities and urban transportation experts, which led to the possibility for companies to present another offer that is even more specific to the needs of the university.
Several urban transportation experts have presented improvement proposals which have resulted in the creation of the agreements that are now active
