Livigno sustainable mobility
Always focused on the environment and on the care of its territory, Livigno is partner of the Interreg Omni-BUS 4.0 project together with Regione Lombardia and the Public Transport Agency of Sondrio. The initiative promoted by the Province of Sondrio and the Canton of Graubünden aims to create a modern, integrated and sustainable system of Alpine cross-border public mobility, increasing the number and quality of transport services offered to local users and tourists.
In order to reduce the pollution caused by the frequent passage of cars in the valley, Livigno has also made the public transport service between the different areas of the village totally free of charge: in fact, four bus lines are available in the winter period and two in the summer period; during the whole year there is also a free transport service connecting Livigno to Trepalle.
To make the project even more significant is the green direction in which the resort, for several years now, is moving, with the placement of five PALINA repower for electric vehicles and BITTA repower for e-bikes, arriving in 2019 to Livigno Plastic Free, a direction in which it will continue to move in support of the environment and to preserve its fantastic natural setting.
