Solution

Cilia Italia is based in Palestrina in the province of Rome. Over the years, Cilia Italia has built up a solid reputation in local public transport and tourism. The company’s history dates back to the 1920s, when Cilia S.p.A. was founded. The company first specialized in freight transport. In the 1930s and 1940s, Cilia developed its core business also in the transportation of passengers. In the 1980s, school transportation was added to the company’s range of services.

In 2013, Cilia consolidated its business activities and became Cilia Italia S.R.L. RATP Dev acquired 51% of the company’s shares. Lazio’s proximity to Tuscany—where RATP Dev is already established—increases the potential to synergize operations in terms of management methods and tools, technical expertise and maintenance. Cilia Italia operates 80 buses that run along urban, school and tour lines throughout the towns of Palestrina, Zagarolo, Bracciano, San Cesareo, Cave, Genazzano and Bellegra. Cilia Italia connects Rome with the most important outlets and theme parks in the region and operates tours into the Vatican’s gardens. Since July 2018, Cilia operates the transport of LUISS University: Students, faculty members and staff at the International Social Studies University in Rome can now travel free of charge around the university campus on board shuttles running on natural gas and electricity. These clean shuttles are also wired in thanks to a revolutionary application entirely designed and developed by Cilia Italia. A precursor initiative in Europe, of ecological and connected mobility solutions.
