Public Transport Ugento

Design and technical assistance for the implementation and tendering of a seasonal public transport service in the Municipality of Ugento (Lecce, Italy)

TRTIngegneria was commissioned by the municipality of Ugento to support the definition of a public transport service to be provided during the summer months to connect all the coastal localities in its territory (Torre San Giovanni, Fontanelle, Torre Mozza and Torre Vado), as well as between the more inland areas (the urban centre and the Gemini hamlet) and the coast.

The design of the new bus line includes the identification and verification of stopping points, the definition of routes and the operating schedule. The new service is proposed as an integration with the current offer of extra-urban services connecting Ugento with the municipalities of: Casarano, Gallipoli and Santa Maria di Leuca as well as with the planned TAD flexible transport system of the Area Interna Sud Salento.

The service will be tested during the 2023 tourist season in order to calibrate the final tender scheme and prepare the subsequent multi-year tender.

TRTIngegneria also provided indications with respect to the overall mobility system of the coastal area, verifying the offer of parking in dedicated parking areas, parking on the road and the forecast of a shuttle system from the parking areas and stops to the access to the sea and bathing facilities
