OrariBus.com is the search engine for public transport in Italy. You can find city and inter-city bus service schedules and timetables published on the web by transport agencies, all trains schedules and info about all railway stations, info about national and inter-regional bus lines and all the info about ticket offices. In this website you will immediately go to the "right" links for information on times and stops of public transport service in a place, if there are bus connections to inter-regional or national bus lines, if there are railway stations in the area and eventually their schedules, which companies operate public transport services in that area, where their ticket offices are located, if booking online is available, etc...
INFOMOBILITY is one of Italy's main sectors involved into innovation processes, since the key feature within public transport is the information given to users. In fact each of us has ever had to reach a particular destination and had to know which public transport services to use. For everyone in fact, before undertaking a journey with public transport, is essential to know the lines, routes, schedules, bus stops, the cost of the ticket, if there are any strikes, etc..
Informations about public transport is the classic example of how this vital information is often presented in a chaotic and inconsistent way: there's the transport company that presents the so-called Journey Planner on its website (although not so many companies do so) based on user's preferences, there's the company that provides such information as a web page (and that's that) and then there's the company that publishes them as PDF files that can be downloaded.
The same schedules are presented in as more various and disordered ways as possible: from the old-school timetables at all stops, to the schedules in which only the departure and destination terminuses are given, and even those where it just says "starting from the terminus every thirty minutes"... Not to mention the changing of the schedules (winter-summer, holiday-weekday, with validity periods that are often set so different from one another by hundreds of Italian companies in this sector).
OrariBus.com represents an attempt to merge all "useful" and necessary information for the public transport user (both traveller or tourist) in Italy, by filtering them as much as possible from that sea of confusion the Internet is and trying to present only what is really needed and is useful for travelers. Basically, through this website who has to travel to a specific area by using public transport will have all the useful information published by the websites of each of the transport companies, all collected in one place.
This website covers the whole Italian territory and all of its public transport companies, and always keeps up-to-date with any eventual change made by the companies. Navigating through the various pages is very simple and we do our best to keep all as user-friendly as possible.
Currently the website is able to provide the following information about buses and trains as published on the web:
- Info from the companies operating city and inter-city bus services for passengers transport throughout Italy,
- Info from the companies operating National Bus Lines throughout Italy,
- Info from the rail service operators throughout Italy.
