The Principality joins European Mobility Week from September 16 to 22 in partnership with the Electric Vehicle Club, Monaco Sustainable Development (MC2D) and the Monaco town council.
The objective of the event is to encourage everybody to move “differently”: on foot, by bicycle, electric vehicle, carpooling or public transport. On the weekend of September 17-18, a celebration of mobility will take place at Larvotto (next to the Rose des Vents), from 10 am to 6 pm, with free trials of two-wheeled and four-wheeled electric vehicles provided by BMW, Renault, Tesla, Go Electrix and ACM.
This is an excellent opportunity to get behind the wheel of electric vehicles such as the Twizy, Zoe, BMWI3, E-Mehari or handlebars of electric two-wheelers. The public can also try the electric bikes of CAM and the Twizy Mobee car sharing service.
The Mediterranean Institute for Studies and Sustainable Development will present and lead IMEDD games on mobility, while the little ones can participate in Bio-Logika, an educational game to raise awareness of different forms of mobility: car, bike, bus, walking … and various recreational workshops.
On the occasion of Public Transport Day, Saturday, September 17, Monaco Bus Company public buses will be free, while on Sunday, avenue Princesse Grace will be partially closed to motor vehicles in order to enable everyone, young and old, to make full use of a secure area in Larvotto for alternative personal transportation.
Three new stations for electric bikes are scheduled to enter service in Monaco, in addition to existing stations. The sites are: Palace Square, Avenue Hector Otto, and Quai Louis II. Additional sites are under consideration for the Condamine and Monte-Carlo.
