Getting around easily

Milan offers various alternatives for getting from one point in the city to another. There is a network of buses, trams and subway available to travelers. The lines of the metropolitana connect different parts of the metropolis, even connecting it to the farthest outskirts of the city.


Besides the most comfortable and traditional modes of transport, such as taxis, it is possible to move around using alternative transport. District Radiobus allow the passenger to request a bus service by phoning. The passenger is then collected directly and taken to their chosen destination.
With car sharing, managed by a few organisations in Milan, the passenger is able to pick up a vehicle, use it and then later return it to one of the various parking areas present in the city. Otherwise, those interested in the city’s bike sharing, can hire a bicycle and then return it when they are finished. It is simply a matter of purchasing a daily, monthly or annual pass, from the Atm Points (Azienda Trasporti Milanese –Transport Department Milan) that are located throughout the city. 
The pass can be activated using the internet site. 


Subway, tram and buses

Milan has four metropolitana (subway) lines, M1 Red line, M2 Green line, M3 Yellow line and M5 Lilac line that connect the city with the hinterland.
The areas of interest to tourists are well serviced. For example, it is only four stops from Stazione Centrale (Central Station) to Piazza Duomo which are connected by the M3 yellow line, allowing you to arrive quickly and directly in the heart of the city. The M1 red line, on the other hand, makes it possible to travel to the new fair centre of Milan from the centre of the city, without the hassle of using a car.
It is also possible to purchase a “customised” ticket according to one’s own needs, including the single trip ticket, the ten-trip carnet ticket for those using the metropolitana occasionally and the tourist pass for anyone wishing to explore the city in depth. For those that need to travel between neighbouring municipalities and the Lombard capital, tickets increase in cost according to the distance to be travelled.
