Easy mobility, As Roma's plan to facilitate those who go to the Olimpico
As Roma, in fact, "Easy mobility", an initiative to provide fans in home matches with concrete solutions against traffic and parking problems. The project presented by the club's chief operating officer, Francesco Calvo, is based on partnerships signed with the main operators active in the capital: BusForFun, Moovit, WeTaxi, Jump By Uber, eCooltra and E-Gap.
"This project is a demonstration of how the company is continuously looking for strategic partnerships that aim to lighten and improve the problems related to the mobility of our fans on the day of the race," explained Calvo.
First of all with the Moovit app you can check the traffic situation on the way to the stadium. You can reach the Foro Italico with one of Jump By Uber's 2,800 pedal-assisted bicycles, or by using one of the thousand eCooltra electric scooters. Or with the more classic taxi (WeTaxi which also gives access to the Samarkand cooperative). Moreover, those who choose electric bikes and scooters will have the opportunity to access reserved and guarded parking spaces and will have the guarantee of finding the same means of transport at the end of the game to return home or to the metro stop or to their car.
The project also promotes green mobility, so those who have an electric car also owned will have easy access and can recharge it in the E-Gap columns (initially free of charge). For those who live outside the capital there will be dedicated buses, initially four lines that will go up to six made available by BusForFun. The Marketing Director of Sport and Health, Diego Nepi, underlined the importance of the "Easy mobility" project, underlining that as usual only 15% of the fans currently reach the Olimpico with alternative means to the car or private motorbike.
For this reason, it has not ruled out that the initiative can also be associated with the other major sporting events hosted at the Foro Italico, from the Six Nations of rugby to the International Tennis Championships in Italy.
