The overall reorganization of the local public transport service network of the Bra conurbation, which includes Cherasco, Pocapaglia and Sanfrè, with extension to the Municipalities of Narzole, Monchiero, Dogliani , Farigliano, Carrù, Cervere and Fossano. The new network - illustrated during a press conference attended by Mayor Bruna Sibille and Transport Councilor Pietro Ferrero, Piedmont Region Councilor for Transport Francesco Balocco, the head of the Piedmontese Agency for Mobility Chiara Cavargna and the president of the Consorzio Granda Bus Clemente Galleano - will officially enter the regime on Monday 6 May 2019.
Quantitative and qualitative changes introduced by the project born from the synergy between the Municipality of Bra (leader of the conurbation), Piedmontese Mobility Agency and GrandaBus Consortium. From the start of the new TPL Braidese, those who travel by bus will have an extended service available, with 7 lines of the conurbation, compared to the previous 5; 2 new extra-urban lines, coordinated and put into system with the conurbates; an increase in daily trips (from 12 to 14, depending on the lines, both in outward and in return); an intermodal connection that combines iron and rubber, with departure coordinated with the 6,31 trains for Turin and Alba, coincidence at the timetables of the SFM 4 and SFM B railway lines and interchange node at the Bra Movententro, right next to the Fs station; a complete review of all the times, set at the same time, for greater efficiency, practicality and ease of memorization.
In what appears to be a real territorial conurbation, it is worth mentioning the 415 extra-urban line, which connects the municipalities of the Tanaro Valley to Carrù in Bra and which effectively restores, by bus, the trains of the old “Bra - Ceva ”, partially destroyed by the 1994 flood. Still on the subject of extra-urban connections, the 35 line, in addition to maintaining the five direct Bra-Cuneo services, brings Bra and Fossano closer together with hourly services, and stops in Cervere, Bricco and Roreto.
Also on Bra there is no lack of novelties: the hourly lines of the “north-south” ridge guarantee the frequency of a run every 15 minutes, in round-trip, between the “Madonna Fiori” area and the “Via Cuneo bridge area ”, Then branching out to four different destinations. Even the neighborhoods and hamlets of Bra are effectively connected to each other, in the center and to the train service with a system of cadenced runs, each minute 30, comfortable and easy to use, cooperating with those coming from the municipalities of Cherasco, Pocapaglia and Sanfrè, as well as those of the vast area at the interchange node of the Braidese Movicentro.
The changes will be appropriately signaled by the 280 conurbation poles which, after restyling, will be provided with an intuitive graphic and a QR code which, through the Granda Bus application, will return information on departure and arrival times updated in real time . The reorganization project of the conurbation of Bra, inserted as part of a wider review of the mobility of the provincial basin, will also be preparatory to the new public transport service for the Verduno Hospital, whose forthcoming opening will have an important impact on mobility of the entire territory.
Finally, a promotion for families residing in conurbation municipalities: to encourage the innovative public service offer, a real alternative to the use of private vehicles with positive effects both in environmental terms and in terms of improving the quality of life, in the coming weeks the Municipalities of Bra, Cherasco, Pocapaglia and Sanfrè, together with the company Autolinee SAC Srl, will promote the free distribution of the Bip card - Piedmont integrated ticket (ordinary cost of 5 euro) to citizens who request it, on which two trips will be credited tribute to test the new city lines.
