The SADEM bus service between the city centre and Turin Airport has several stops enroute including Porta Nuova railway station, Porta Susa railway station, via Stradella 242/245, Borgaro and Caselle city centre. Busses run approximately every 15 minutes during the week and every 30 minutes during the weekend, from 06.10 to 00.00 hrs (airport >city) and 05.15 to 23.30 hrs (city > airport).

Public transport in the city:

Turin has a widespread network of buses and trams which consents to reach every corner of the city without worrying about the restricted traffic areas or car parks.
Almost every line begins its journey at 05.00 hrs and finishes at 00.00 hrs. Trip tickets can be bought at news-stands, tobacconists, and some public concerns.
The ticket price can vary from trip to trip (local and suburban), from the length of the trip (a ticket lasts 90 minutes, but there are also tickets that last all day long), and from how many tickets are bought together (you can buy a block of 10 tickets with a discount).
The Turin public transport company is the GTT (Gruppo Torinese Trasporti); on its website (http://www.gtt.to.it/en/) there is plenty of information on local and suburban buses and trams and even the possibility to download the working days network map for buses and trams (very useful for tourists who want to move by public transports).
