L’car confirms the protagonist of movements in our country: this was announced by Istat in disseminating the estimates relating to a survey ad hoc on how the mobility of Italians could vary over the period April-June 2022 compared to the previous six months. In the last 6 months, 84 out of 100 Italians have used their car as their main means of transport, preferring it to public transport.
Not surprisingly, public transport such as trains, metro and buses are used in a rather reduced way so that the87.4% of Italians, the frequency of use of public transport will not vary in the next three months compared to the previous six months. A percentage equal to 7.6% expects an increase in this mode of transport, while 3.5% expects a decrease. With reference to those who intend to change the means of transport for usual journeys, 38.7% attribute the change toincrease in the price of fuel while 23.5% will vary the means of transport due to lower risks of Covid-19 infection. Let’s not forget, in fact, that in the last two years the Covid-19 pandemic has completely transformed the habits of Italians who, instead of public transport, have preferred to use cars or green vehicles such as bicycles and scooters.
Another important fact emerges from the survey relating to the mobility of the Belpaese. The trips to the Resort with the start of the summer they will not increase exponentially: compared to the winter semester, travel increases by 12.9% but remains unchanged for over 82% of the interviewees and will decrease for 4 out of 100 Italians.
Among the data collected there are those concerning the sharing, the same one that records numbers that are not entirely positive. In the North-East the use is equal to 0 and in the rest of Italy the sharing services do not involve even 1 Italian out of 100. Completely similar data among young people: in fact, the survey found that no respondents among the 18 and the 29 years have used it car sharing services as their primary means of transport, while just over 1% said they will use it in the next quarter.
