ZTL (limited traffic zones) are already active in Roma to limit/ban the access of private cars in large portion of the day.

More details on permanent measures:

This year theme, Smart mobility. Strong economy, is encouraging both local politicians and the public to look at smart and sustainable mobility as an investment for Europe. These issues are fully matched in Rome, where presently the intensive use of private vehicles and, simultaneously, TP offer still far from the mobility needs of Rome, produces important economic losses of about 1.5 billion €/year, net of environmental costs, equivalent to 135 million hours lost by Roman citizens for their journeys.
The new Mayor Mobility Program Guide Lines set specific objectives and prevalent actions zone by zone to recover balance among all modes and healthy quality of life. This “soft revolution” is reinforcing the sustainable mobility concept with hard analysis of delays with other EU Capitals, in terms of car properties, congestion costs, low PT commercial speed, metro length, pollution and safety level.
It starts from an hard analysis of delays with other EU Capitals, in terms of car properties, congestion costs, low PT commercial speed, metro length, pollution and safety level.
The general aim of Rome is then to have a city full of opportunity with a public transport more efficient and competitive compared to private cars, where to walk or bike is safe, easy and convenient, first of all for the children and for the elderly. In this scheme, private car policy and tourist buses will be oriented to the decongestion of the central areas. P&R system will be extended and encouraged. Keyword is to improve safety conditions and the creation of local cycling networks starting from few pilot areas. Intermodality is supported with bike sharing, car sharing and electric mobility modes that are becoming an integral part of a new mobility policy, offering more extensively alternatives for mobility of city users.
