The objective of the contract deriving from this award procedure is the provision of services relating to suburban and urban road transport of people in Italy (exceptionally Europe), respecting the environment.

The service will be carried out mainly for transport between the EFSA headquarters in Parma and the airports of Milan MXP (36 %) - Linate LIN (21 %), Bologna (33 %) and Bergamo (10 %) and vice versa.

During 2019, the number of single journeys was in the order of 4 500 with about 7 500 people transported. In the years 2020 and 2021, the service was substantially suspended due to COVID and the meetings took place virtually.
