Abstract

The second phase of the virus Covid-19 is about to start a new configuration of accessibility to activities and cities. This phase, which will be able to see different restriction levels both between different countries and between successive periods, is the great challenge that the whole world is facing and which, if not managed in a planned and strategic way, risks turning into a further catastrophe. The social distancing rules imposed will necessarily lead to an escape from public transport in the cities, which could turn into total congestion of city traffic, leading the cities themselves to paralysis. We need a series of countermeasures that define new mobility capable of mitigating the effects of the mobility offer imbalance by intervening quickly, economically, and, in the short term, emergency on the whole transport chain. This article presents some possible actions to be put in place, and some mobility measures actually applied in Tuscany coastal area.
