Event sustainability is increasingly becoming a crucial topic among both scholars and practitioners. The main purpose of this research is to verify the existence and the extent of synergies between sustainable events and sustainable urban public transportation, with particular reference to light rail transit (LRT). Using the main events taking place in Perugia and its LRT (the Minimetrò) as a case study, a method is proposed to quantify the extent to which event visitors contribute to achieving the economic sustainability of urban public transportation. The results suggest the existence of a win-win perspective, showing that the more the events become sustainable, the more they contribute to the economic sustainability of public transportation.
