Feasibility study for a light metro system targeted at improving and optimising the urban and extra urban transport system of Como.
Several alternatives have been considered and analysed from the point of view of the technical solutions to adopt, the route of the line, the management options. Plus and minus for each alternative have been investigated with multi-criteria analysis methods. The study allowed to identify the best options, projected into possible future scenarios, considering stakeholders involved, their preferences and a set of environmental, economic and social indicators. The study was commissioned by the Como municipality and also involved the Province of Como, the Lombardia Region, Ferrovie dello stato (Italian national railway company), Ferrovie Nord Milano (the major private train operator in Italy) and the public transport company SPT.
