The opening of the first route of Metro B1 Line from the Bologna Station to the Conca D'Oro Station will serve a target market of about half a million residents of the north-east quadrant of Rome, with a modern and efficient transport system.The central areas and Eur will be easier to reach directly without changing transport,with positive effects on the pollution reduction and decongestion of traffic from private transport. The new network will attract 85,000 new commuters per day, that will exchange private transportation for public, with an increment of 20 % more passenger space.
