Transport technologies
Rail transport is a great classic of urban transport. It has such deep roots in European cities that for a time it was considered "obsolete". In recent years, the need to give the most overcrowded metropolitan cities an ecological makeover has led to a reappraisal of the existing infrastructure and an increase in the number of services that had been set aside to make room for buses and cars. While in Europe rail transport generally finds fertile ground, in Italy the push for trams and metros is slow, bringing the country to the bottom of the European league table as the country with the lowest rate of rolling stock. Italy has 0.57 kilometers of tram network per 100,000 inhabitants, two-thirds of which are in Lombardy and Piedmont alone. France has 1.14 kilometers per 100,000 inhabitants, and Germany has 3.05. In the United Kingdom, kilometers of tram network per 100,000 inhabitants fall to 0.35, but the number is well justified in view of Europe's most extensive metro network: 402 kilometers of metro network in London alone and an average daily passenger flow of 3.2 million, and a total of 495 kilometers throughout the country (7.39 km per million inhabitants). In Germany, the total extension of the metro network is 402 kilometers: 4.08 kilometers per million inhabitants, compared to 3.3 in Italy, where once again a large proportion of the rolling stock is located in northern cities.
