Torino tube driven by kids?


Torino tube is it driven by kids? No eheh the Torino underground simply doesn't have any driver. It's fully automatic and it's the first in Italy entirely developed in this way like the first in Italy able to cover mobile phone's signal.

La metro di Torino è guidata da bambini? No eheh la metropolitana di Torino semplicemente non ha alcun guidatore. E' completamente automatica ed è la prima in Italia ad essere stata interamente concepita in questo modo come la prima ad avere la copertura per i telefoni cellulari.

Fabrizio, knowing there is no driver ... do you feel safe riding these trains? ~Chuck

How spotless it is - like the tube train Singapore.

But no mobile phone signal? All those Italians must go crazy! An Ialian without a mobile phone clamped to his or her ear is an anomaly!

Happy Easter, Fabrizio!

The 'Docklands' trains in London have no driver and feel very safe. There is a guard on board in case there is a technical problem.

@Chuck and Gizelle, I may assure you that the train (used in France and in London too) it's absolutely safe for a very simple reason: there are much more security devices in these kind of underground than those with driver and, as we know, the human factor is more dangerous

@Jilly, my poor English changed the result. This underground LET people to use cell phone in it. It's the first in Italy.

@Mikeacoyle, in Torino undergruìound there isn't a guard on board (if you're meaning a man)

@Simo, è molto bella, ti piacerà !

@Sharilyn, sure but you're seeing just the last two. Other three are behind me. *chuckle
