Public transport in Turin

 

Buses and trams

Torino local transportation is served by GTT – Gruppo Trasporti Torinese, which manages one subway line, urban and suburban networks. Buses and trams usually run from 5 a.m. until midnight on weekdays. On the weekend, at night, special lines called “Nightbuster” run until 5 a.m.
Tickets can be purchased at any news-stand, tobacconist, bar and at the 24h automatic vending machines available in every Metro station. You need to buy your bus/tram tickets/pass before boarding. The price of the ticket depends on the trip (local or suburban), on its length (one ticket lasts 70 minutes, but there are tickets for the whole day) and on the amount of tickets bought together (carnets of tickets offer discounts on the price of the single ticket).
On the GTT website you can check out prices, passes, timetables and plan your bus journey throughout the city. Make sure to check this website regularly to be aware of variations and changes.

 

Underground

The subway, "metropolitana" or "metro", connects Collegno, a town in the west side of the city, with Piazza Bengasi and enables one to cover in 20 minutes a distance that would take more than an hour on the ground.

More information is available on the GTT website.
