Perugia is a tourist destination with a remarkable landcape and historic heritage. Yet its hilly topography
encouraged the use of cars, which meant the city's roads were chronically congested. Beginning in the
1970s, a series of interventions, such as lifts and escalators, were introduced to improve accessibility
within the city. In 2008, a brand new light rail transport system was introduced to connect the city
center with the suburbs. The current mobility system gives the city various sustainable public transport
options, making Perugia an example for cities which must adapt planning to topography.
