A regional renaissance in Piemonte

The Piemonte region is working with Trenitalia and municipal operator GTT to develop an intensive suburban network based on branding, use of social media, and clockface timetables, and backed by a substantial program of infrastructure investment. The Servizio Ferroviario Metropolitana (SFM) program is the first effort to change the state's mentality towards regional trains, and it was made possible by the urban renewal that began with Torino's hosting of the Olympic Winter Games in 2006. Included in its plans are new lines, tunnel construction, and smart ticketing.
