The paper explores the role of pedestrians in inter-modality of local public transport (LPT) in the historic centers, whose morphological, sociological, economic characteristics, in one word, the environment, are such as to require a dedicated approach and specific attention to the accessibility to the LPT historically denied or complicated by geography or structural impediments. Enhancing the role of the TPL in the consolidated urban tissues necessarily mean revising the urban transport system as a whole to prevent that pedestrians in historic city centers (built for pedestrians) means again isolation, poor access, lack of integration with the other districts of the modern city that often have completely replaced the roles and functions of the ancient city. General considerations on the role of pedestrians in intermodality of the LPT in town centers, are made from the experiences on the contribution of pedestrians in the modal chain of displacements in the city of Bari, where the historic center is a peninsula bordered by an important driveway (the promenade) that simultaneously performs district, urban and suburban functions, with obvious conflicts and overlapping traffic streams with different requirements. So, the waterfront has been the subject of an urban project that, starting with the aim of solving problems of limited use in some periods of the year (the summer months in which the seafront becomes a real road - square always crowded) has proposed the walkability as a key for a new model of urban accessibility and use of the historic center .Therefore, the paper after an introduction on the relationship between walkability and LPT in the historic centers, the analysis of problems and opportunities of this ratio as a function of the characteristics of the urban context, re-read the case study and highlights the innovative and general aspects examples for the methodology to be used to make contemporary the pedestrian traffic in the modal chain shifts, with particular attention to the role it plays in accessibility to LPT in historical centers.
