Transport bonus 2022: how to get the 60 euro voucher

Transport bonus 2022: how to get the 60 euro voucher

Transport bonus 2022

Tomorrow, September 1, 2022, starting at 8:00 in the morning, it will be possible to officially request the 2022 transport bonus by visiting a dedicated site prepared by the Ministry of Sustainable Infrastructures and Mobility. This is, to all intents and purposes, a measure reserved for a specific public that will be able to obtain a voucher of 60 euros that can be spent to cover, entirely or not, the thickness of a subscription to a local public transport company (TPL ).

The Government had initially allocated 79 million euros, later raised to 180 million euros. Those who fail to obtain the benefit can submit the expenses in the tax return and obtain a deduction of 19% on a maximum of 250 euros spent on public transport passes; in this case, the measure applies to all taxpayers without any particular constraint.

subjects: natural persons, dependent minors, freelancers with VAT number; total income: not exceeding 35 thousand euros, achieved in 2021 (self-certification). all taxable income, not only those from work and retirement, including therefore those from rent and subject to coupon dry. Each member of the household, providing the declaration form and if not charged to a parent, can repeat the operation to obtain their personal voucher.

It will be determined by the amount of the annual or monthly subscription that you intend to buy. The voucher is valid for the purchase of season tickets for local, regional and interregional public transport services or for national rail transport services. The bonus is not transferable and does not affect the calculation of the ISEE.

How to get it

name and surname; fiscal Code; the total income of the beneficiary; amount of the voucher requested. We specify that before requesting the fund, with a maximum value of 60 euros, it is necessary to inquire at the points of sale or official sites of the local public transport companies. We remind you, in fact, that the expense can be used to fully cover, or not, a monthly or annual subscription. The voucher is issued through the portal and is marked with a unique identification code, therefore not transferable. The disbursements will follow the order of registration on the portal, therefore we recommend accessing them as soon as possible since the "click-day" risk is unfortunately around the corner.

The precise instructions and information (also for public transport companies) are contained in the implementing decree signed by the Ministry of Labor, the MEF and the MIMS on 29 July 2022.

For which subscriptions is it valid?


The bonus can be requested until the end of the year, 31 December 2022, or the end of the available resources. The voucher must be spent within the month of issue; after this deadline, the unused voucher will be automatically canceled.

Fuel price increases and green vehicle incentives: The best climate policy for road transport

by Ulrich von Lampe, Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change

A quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions are generated in the transport sector, and climate policy has not been very successful so far in tackling these, especially those from road transport. And yet a few international examples of significant reductions in road emissions in a stable economic situation have been found. A new study now sheds light on how such success stories arose and what recommendations and opportunities for future policy can be derived from them. It was conducted by the Berlin-based climate research institute MCC (Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change) in cooperation with University of Oxford and University of Victoria.

The study is published in the journal Nature Energy. It takes an innovative approach to policy evaluation. Classic impact analysis is geared toward evaluating individual measures in isolation—but in political reality, governments almost always implement bundles of measures that impact each other. To address this, a new data-driven approach to identify effective policy mixes has been developed. The research team looks at road emissions from 1995 to 2018 in 15 countries (EU before eastward enlargements, including the U.K.), matches them with economic performance and population, and uses machine learning methods to identify 'emissions breaks' that do not result from economic conditions. Finally, it determines which individual or interacting climate policy measures have generated these emissions breaks.

The sophisticated statistical method thus identifies promising combinations from the multitude of possible policy instruments. 'We found only ten examples of successful climate policy intervention in road transport in 15 EU countries over a period of 24 years,' reports Nicolas Koch, head of the Policy Evaluation Lab at MCC, and lead author of the study. 'All ten cases are linked to at least one measure that increased the running costs of driving—usually via higher fuel prices through carbon pricing, but sometimes through energy taxes, or tolls. In addition, in almost all cases, the policy provided incentives to buy zero- or lower-emission vehicles—either through vehicle taxes based on CO₂ emissions, or through subsidies.'

The magnitude of the ten identified emission reductions indicates the significant potential of certain policy mixes in transport, even if more success is needed to reduce overall CO₂ emissions further. The largest relative reduction was in Luxembourg, where the government was able to reduce emissions by 26% from 2015 through a combination of higher fuel prices and bonus-malus schemes for vehicle purchases. This was followed by Finland (by 17% from 2000), Ireland (by 13% from 2011), and Sweden (by 11% from 2001); Denmark and Portugal likewise recorded successes with this combination. In Germany, the eco-tax reform from 1999 to 2003 and the road tolls for trucks from 2005 had a positive climate impact.

Looking to the future, the research team recommends increasing carbon pricing in road transport, flanked by an ambitious bonus-malus system: moderate subsidies for electric vehicles and widely spread vehicle tax rates for combustion cars. 'In principle, the leverage effect of such a policy mix should be strong enough to achieve the EU's proclaimed goal of climate neutrality by the middle of the century, even in this so far challenging sector,' concludes MCC researcher Koch. 'The instruments are available. What is needed now is the political will to apply them consistently, comprehensively, and over the long term.'
