More passengers on the subway – pending official data on surface public transport – fewer cars on the road. The expensive gasoline is already manifesting itself in the moving habits of the Romans. And in the coming weeks, if the situation does not improve, the energy crisis would turn into a tsunami for Roman public transport. Mostly in an already difficult situation for Atac, between arrangements with creditors against possible bankruptcy and chronic delays in the maintenance of vehicles and lines. And after two years in which, due to the Covid pandemic, the demand for public transport has instead decreased. Except then go back, but in a situation in which the preventive anti-contagion measures have put the public transport system in great difficulty, evidently not adequate for maintaining the distance on board the vehicles.

The accesses

In one week, according to data from the Mobility Agency, the number of passengers using the three subway lines has increased: 15,000 more per day, on average, distributed between A, B and C. And even on the surface there is they are beginning to see the first repercussions, in terms of crowding of buses and trams (especially during rush hours) and of people waiting at the terminus and at the main public transport stops. Atac is therefore called upon to make an extraordinary effort, as also requested by the Capitoline administration which, regardless of the surge in the price of fuels, decisively focuses on reducing the flow of private traffic, in favor of public and collective transport and sustainable mobility. .

The circulation

The increase in passengers on board local public transport vehicles corresponds to a decrease, albeit still insensitive, in private traffic. But the trend can be seen: again according to data from the Mobility Agency, in the last week the number of vehicles on average on the streets of the capital fell from 45,500 to 43,400, with a decrease of 2,100 vehicles around the city, and an average speed that exceeds 32 kilometers per hour. For now, we are just under 5 percent less traffic volume in the Eternal City. But the decrease in private cars is destined to worsen in the next few days, if there is not a very rapid turnaround on this front, by modifying the city traffic map again. Without prejudice to the difficulties that continue to occur for public mobility.

The situation

The Roman local public transport still faces years of delay in terms of maintenance. Which will soon force, for example, metro A to close at 21 for a year and a half. But that’s not all: in the next few days, two important stations will stop for renewal of the electrical infrastructure. The Valle Aurelia stop, in particular, will close from 18 to 20 March, while Baldo degli Ubaldi will be closed from 21 to 26 March. For the Valle Aurelia stop days, the Baldo degli Ubaldi station or the MA14 Cipro-Valle Aurelia shuttle will be available. But also the tram network continues to operate in fits and starts: from today to Friday, from 10pm to 4am, night maintenance is scheduled for the tramway site in via Principe Eugenio, from viale Manzoni to piazza Vittorio: trams 5 and 14 direct to Termini station as early as 9pm will limit the service to Porta Maggiore, from where the return journey will begin. From Porta Maggiore to Termini the connection will be replaced with a single shuttle bus, line 514. Until Friday, for pruning in viale Liegi, line 3 will be replaced by buses along the entire route while line 19 will be replaced by shuttle buses between Porta Maggiore and Piazza Risorgimento.
