Cavourese was established on 14th December, 1945 in Cavour, Turin. The small company only owned one coach, a 30-seat FIAT 626 model, and a single driver for the route Cavour-Pinerolo.
60s and 70s
In order to meet the growing transport demand, the vehicle fleet was widened, as well as the bus routes quantity. The first workforce and school transport services appeared in the Turinese and Cuneese areas.
80s and 90s
With its constant development, the company became one of the main actors in the public transport field. It began then to widen its offer of coach hire with driver, covering both the national and the European area. At the same time, Cavourese secured relevant partnerships with tour operators and touristic companies.
In 2001 and 2003, the company got the UNI EN ISO 9001 –for its Quality Management System– and UNI EN ISO 14001 –for its Management System Development– certificates.During these years the vehicle fleet increased and the covered areas were significantly expanded. The corporate merger of some small companies in the area -like the SDAV s.r.l. located in Luserna S. Giovanni, the Bodoira Angelo s.r.l. in Val Susa or the EUROBUS s.r.l. in Turin contributed to this development.
In 2006, thanks to the Winter Olympics the spotlight was on Turin and its incomparable ski areas. Cavourese took part into the event as transport manager partner for athletes and sponsors such as General Electric and NBC. Furthermore, the Olympic frame helped our company to officially launch the Ski Bus service, a direct connection between the Turin Airport and the main ski resorts in Upper Val Susa - Bardonecchia, Sestriere, Pragelato, Cesana and Oulx.
Cavourese entered Extra.TO, a consortium that associates 21 transport companies within the Metropolitan City of Turin and whose aim is to ensure the Public and Local Transport services in Turin and in Pinerolo, Ivrea, Bardonecchia, Carmagnola and Giaveno.

Cavourese incorporated Martoglio S.p.A., an historic company from Giaveno (TO), thus widening the vehicle fleet and the service offer itself. During the same year the Turin headquarter –located in Strada del Drosso 77– developed its relevance in order to provide its customers a specific commercial division.
In these last years the company has strengthened its coach hire sector, keeping a special focus on the tourism field. Thanks to its partnerships with the main local tour operators and the creation of new touristic routes – such as Liguria Shuttle, the Sacra shuttle and the Turin Eco City Tour, which won the ANAV SMART MOVE 2016 for Tourism –, Cavourese has widened its range of action like no other company in Piedmont. In March 2018 Cavourese has adopted the OHSAS 18001:2007 –Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series– certification alongside existing management systems.
Cavourese, which has always underlined its tendency to innovate, continues to look forward with brand new projects, improving the service offers and assuring efficiency, safety and professionalism to all of its customers.
