Bike’s Urban NEtwork in Torino

B.U.NE.T - Bike's Urban Network in Torino is a project supporting cycling mobility created by the City of Torino and the Metropolitan Authority of Torino, and implemented  by 5T with the cooperation of [TO]BIKE bike sharing service.

B.U.NE.T. allows citizens to plan their trips, both by using their own bikes and by using bike sharing service, available in urban and provincial area.

The calculation of the system is mainly based on 3 parameters:

  • Security: the journey planner prefers cycle lanes and low traffic areas for a bike-friendly trip
  • Faster trip: the journey planner tries to reduce the travel time
  • Altimetry: the journey planner prefers flat path, especially for travels in provincial area

The service, the first in Italy entirely promoted and supported by local authorities, was developed using open source technologies (OpenStreetMap as cartographic basis and OpenTripPlanner for journey planner) and integrates the position of the [TO]BIKE stations providing real-time information.

Moreover, 5T has improved the quality of service by integrating cycling path on map: 290 metropolitan cycling routes, 2,604 provincial bicycle routes, 151 tourist routes of circuit "Corona di Delizie".

B.U.NE.T. is available on www.bunet.torino.it and by the web portal Torino in Bici of the City of Torino.
