SPECIAL FARES FOR COMPANIES
Mobility Management is the application of guidelines aiming to improve people and goods mobility and transportation, especially with regard to social and environmental issues. This discipline focuses in particular on the daily runs between home and work that, although they represent a minority of the total runs, not only are crucial to estimate the rush-hour traffic but also affect the quality of service significantly.
What does a Mobility Manager do?
The Mobility Manager is a new position introduced by 27 March 1998 Decree regarding Sustainable Mobility in Urban Areas. It deals both political and environmental issues in order to efficiently coordinate the mobility of citizens and workers. All companies with more than 300 employees per each local office - or 800 and more employees in different branches, or groups of small companies and organizations (for example schools and health care centers) - must appoint a Corporate Mobility Manager who is in charge of drafting the Commuter Plan.
What is the Mobility Management purpose?
The main purpose of mobility management is to discourage the intensive and exclusive use of private cars promoting the daily use of public transport. Brescia Transporti and the Mobility Manager Office of Brescia Municipality have signed an agreement, that can be extended to all public and private companies, in order to promote and facilitate the use of public transport.

Following the amendments to Regional Law no. 6/2012 on local public transport, from Tuesday, 4 February 2014 the new rates for administrative fines intended for users of public transport travelling without a valid ticket will now also apply to Brescia.
The new provisions were implemented by the General Conditions of Transport approved by a special resolution of the city council. In compliance with the guidelines established by the Lombardy Region, the penalties applied to ticketing violations are as follows:
- Full fine (equivalent to 100 times the cost of a regular ticket) €140.00
- Fine reduced by a third and further reduced 30% if payment is made within 5 days of the notification: €32.00
- Fine reduced by a third and increased by procedural costs if the payment is made after 5 days, but within 60 days from the date of notification: €61.00 (46.00 + 15.00)
- Full fine increased by procedural costs if the payment is made after 60 days from the date of notification: €170.00 (140.00 + 30.00)
- For users who within 5 days from the date of notification demonstrate that they possess a pass that was valid at the time of the fine, the payment of €7.50 for procedural costs remains unchanged and due.
Fines can be paid:
- At the offices of Brescia Trasporti - Fines Office - Via San Donino, 30 (open from Monday to Friday from 8 am to 4 pm).
- By postal payment

If you forget your season ticket
- if the season ticket has been issued by Brescia Trasporti, a check will be made to ensure you actually own a season ticket and you will be able to pay the €7.50 administration charge in cash at the time the fine is issued or within 5 days at the Post Office;
- if the season ticket has not been issued by Brescia Trasporti, you will need to go to the Fines Office in Via San Donino 30 within 5 days of the fine being issued, to prove that you own a season ticket. In that case, the fine will be reduced to €7.50 as an administrative charge.
