Sharing mobility in Turin: where are we?


The first activities of the Italian Hub involved a baseline assessment of the shared mobility offer in the city at the time of the project kick-off. In 2019, it was possible to find three car sharing providers (two free floating, one station based – fully electric), two bike sharing providers (one free floating, one station based), and one motor scooter sharing provider. Taxi sharing services were available too, together with a good car pooling offer. Eight shared e-scooters operators have started their activity in late 2019.

These are the numbers and some characteristics found for each of the services available. Information is collected from the document prepared by Osservatorio Nazionale Sharing Mobility and from contacts in the Municipality.
