Shotl's On-Demand Night Bus in Piacenza: a Resounding Success

Located about 70 kilometres south of Milan and just over an hour's drive from the Lombardy capital, Piacenza is an important historic city in the Emilia-Romagna region. It’s an ideal base for exploring the region, and famous for its wide variety of food and wine.

Shotl celebrates the resounding success of its on-demand public night transport service in Piacenza after over a year together with Tempi Agenzia and SETA. Since its launch, this innovative solution has transformed the city’s late-night transportation, exceeding expectations by revolutionizing the way residents and visitors travel.

The service covers the entire urban area of over 40 square km. Citizens have more than 360 stops to choose from for pick-up and drop-off locations. These city trips can be booked through Shotl’s white-label app Tuobus app (available for iOS & Android). The operation also caters to people with reduced mobility as one of the vehicles has capacity for disabled passengers. The services in Piacenza, therefore, combine two successful Shotl use cases: night transport and paratransit.

The on-demand public night transport service has rapidly gained popularity, meeting the rising demand for reliable transportation at night. Piacenza's community has wholeheartedly embraced the service, recognizing its numerous benefits and convenience. The positive response from passengers has solidified the service's position as an essential component of Piacenza's public transportation system.

Safety and passenger satisfaction remain paramount in the operation of this service. In addition to the benefits for individual passengers, Shotl's on-demand public night transport service has had a transformative impact on the city as a whole.

The success of Shotl's on-demand public night transport service in Piacenza is a testament to the company's commitment to innovation and its partnership with local authorities. By listening to the needs of the community and leveraging advanced technology, Shotl has created a solution that has surpassed expectations and greatly enhanced the overall travel experience for Piacenza's residents and visitors.
