From June, at certain vaporetto stops around the city, priority will be given to Venetian residents.  The detail of the scheme has not been announced yet. The mayor, Luigi Brugnaro, made this part of his election manifesto.

In the summer, millions of tourists flock to Venice every day. The influx of so many people can make getting around the city very difficult for its residents and the workers who commute to Venice from the mainland. To overcome this problem, the proposal is to create two separate queues for the vaporettos at the main stops: Piazzale Roma (the bus station), Ferrovia (the train station), Rialto, San Marco (Saint Mark's Square), the Lido and Murano. Priority will then be given to the residents' queue.

The scheme will be an experiment and is intended to start in June. A similar scheme was put in place by the last Mayor at the Rialto vaporetto stop, but didn't last long.

Tutto pronto entro l'estate!
