Sustainable mobility is essential for a smart city, that should aim to make the access and travel across the city as efficient, comfortable and safe as possible.

Milan’s metro line 5 for example has received a Project Finance International Magazine Award in the “Transport Deal of the Year 2015“ category.

On the 3rd of February in London, the award acknowledged the great work performed by the City of Milan and the M5 Consortium composed of Alstom, Astaldi, Ansaldo STS, Hitachi Rail Italy – ex Ansaldo Breda – and ATM to complete this strategic project for sustainable mobility in Milan.

Line 5 is the first automatic metro line in Milan and is about 13 km long, running completely underground and crossing the city with 19 stations between Bignami and San Siro. It carries 130,000 passengers per day and avoids 15 million private car trips per year.
