Review of progress in sustainable mobility: Milan is seventh in Europe thanks to electric buses and the vast network of shared bicycles and scooters

July 3, 2023 – 2:00 p.m.

In the ranking 2023 of the report’s clean citiesThanks for sharing – The state of shared mobility and zero emissions in European cities», which he tested 42 European cities to see who is doing the best about sustainable mobility, Milano looks good when placed in seventh place behind the usual green oases of northern Europe but ahead of important capitals such as Berlin, Brussels, Stockholm, Madrid and London. It is above all the network of zero emission busjudged among the best on the continent, while the state of public electric car charging is still lacking, an aspect where Milan (and others) can and must improve.


Clean Cities, the European network of over 80 environmental and civil society organizations for a sustainable and zero-emission urban mobilityestablished the ranking taking into account four main indicators:

  • availability of Bikes (traditional and pedal-assisted) and electric scooters in shared mode every 1,000 inhabitants;
  • availability of electric car shared by every 1,000 inhabitants;
  • percentage of zero emission bus (electric, fuel cells, supercapacitors and trolleybuses) in the local public transport fleet;
  • availability of public charging infrastructure electric vehicles per 1,000 inhabitants.

Each of these indicators was assigned a percentage score from 0 to 100based on the results obtained by each city, in turn translated into letters from A to Fwhere A designates the cities that do the best in terms of sustainable mobility (from 80 to 100% of the results achieved) and F those that do the least (less than 10%).

Copenhagencapital of Denmark, is the European city that accelerate more than anyone in terms of electric and shared mobility with an excellent score of 87%, achieved above all thanks to the wide availability of shared electric cars and charging points. In second place there is Oslo and on the third Paris. However, the Clean Cities report predicts that the French capital will soon lose this privileged position due to the decision to ban the shared rental of electric scooters.


As mentioned, Milano holds an encouraging place seventh place European Union, mainly due to the excellent number of zero-emission buses and the extensive network of shared bikes and scooters. On the other hand, the situation of public charging stations is less good, which the report considers largely insufficient in relation to needs.

And the other major Italian cities? So so Torinoevil Rome (where a bus situation weighs far beyond embarrassment) and very badly Naples. However, they are in “good” company, given the very poor results of seemingly unsuspected cities such as London (a little better than Rome), Barcelona, ​​Valencia, Dublin and Manchester.

Wanting to summarize as much as possible, the Clean Cities Report suggests that:

  • shared mobility is on the move rapidly evolving, albeit differently between different cities. This is affected by different country regulations. For example, in the UK, scooter rental is still in an experimental phase;
  • several cities (and Milan is one of them) are in the process of having a zero-emission public transport by 2030, or even beforeshowing the way forward for others;
  • Electric car sharing is rapidly catching up and growing in many cities. However, combustion engines are still prevalent in car sharing;
  • Cities are stepping up the provision of charging infrastructure, but with notable differences across Europe.
