TRANSPORT Milan Public Transport

METRO The metro is a great way to travel in Milan. There are 4 underground lines called Metropolitana. They run from 6 to 12.30 a.m., about every 2 minutes or so in peak hour, less frequently (every 5-7 minutes) during the rest of the day and at weekends.

Buses/Trolleybuses Wherever the Metro doesn’t go, at least one bus will. There are over 100 bus lines connecting the city and the suburbs. Buses run from 5 to 1 a.m., but some may finish earlier or start later, especially at weekends, and you can’t buy tickets on board.

Single tickets are €1.50 and are valid for 90 minutes. Within the 90 minutes, you can do one journey on the underground and unlimited trips on buses and trams. Tickets are sold at electronic ticket machines in the station, or at tobacconists and newsstands. You can download the free ATM app for network maps and timetables.

TRAMS Milan also has numerous trams crisscrossing town. Some still use the old ‘Carrelli’ streetcars, built in the 1920s, making them the longest continuously-running public transport vehicles in use. Same as buses, you can’t buy tickets from the driver. Trams usually run longer than buses, from 5 to 1.30-2 a.m.
