BIP / Pyou Card - Arriva Italia - Torino

BIP / Pyou Card

Starting from 2013, the Sadem paper identification card is replaced with an electronic card of the new Ticketing System called BIP, that is to say a single contactless microchip ticket (contactless), which allows access to any public transport (specially equipped ), in any area of the regional territory.

On the BIP card it will be possible to load all the travel tickets of the services included in the regional mobility network, regardless of the route, the means or the transport company used.

  • One or more travel tickets, tickets and season tickets can be loaded onto the BIP Card (urban, extra-urban, railway, Formula, annual, monthly, weekly passes, carnet, car shating, bike sharing, …).

    At each trip, it will be necessary to validate the smart card when boarding the vehicle by bringing the card close to the appropriate reader located near the access to the service and descent. An acoustic signal will clearly indicate that the card has been validated; a double signal will indicate that the subscription or credit is not valid, as the on-board system is able to independently validate the subscription and recognize if the service is being used on the route provided for by the subscription.

  • The BIP Card costs € 5.00 and has a duration of four years.

    It is issued for users aged 0 to 14 and / or over 30.

    A special card called Pyou Card has been prepared for young people between 15 and 29 years old.

  • The Pyou Card is the card equivalent to the BIP that the Piedmont Region has prepared for young people between 15 and 29 years old, resident or domiciled in the region, issued at a cost of € 5.00.

    Furthermore, thanks to the culture commission and the territorial conventions, the Pyou Card adds cultural, sporting, leisure, training and more offers offered throughout the region to the BIP’s mobility services.

    • By filling in the Green form and ticking on the back of the form “I already have Pyou”
    • Paying the administration fees for customization of € 5.00

    You will then be contacted by the transport company and called directly to customize your card.
