"I would like to greet all employees with a` Welcome aboard`, the CEO continues - starting with those who helped us, with care and passion, to organize the takeover. Thanks also to all the drivers, for their commitment that they have demonstrated and that I am convinced of - they will continue to demonstrate in the future ". Therefore, regulate the first day of service, also thanks to the holiday and reduced activity. The buses - many of the Autolinee Toscane license plates from the early hours of the morning with new window stickers have traveled without criticality.

Add to this the difficulties created by Covid and the green pass, such as the shortage of drivers. It will take some time before we see a more reliable and homogeneous service. But this is our goal that we would like to achieve by next September ".
