Metro tickets Rome: how much do they cost?
In order to move in the city of Rome there are many solutions provided by public transport that connect the different areas. To use buses, trams and undergrounds, it is essential to have a ticket to be validated at the start of the ride. Tickets can be purchased at smoke shops and newspaper kiosk or directly from the automatic machines before gates in the metro stations.
Unlike other European cities, the frequency of bus and metro rides can be improved and the means are often overcrowded. Some areas are poorly served and unfortunately the underground connects only some areas of the city.
The cost of the one-way ticket is € 1.50 and lasts 100 minutes from the moment of validation. It allows you to take all public surface transport (trams and buses) even after using the subway. Once outside the subway turnstiles, it is not allowed to access it again with the same ticket. In this case, a new travel document must be endorsed.
For those who often use public transport, especially for work, there are season tickets that allow good long-term economic savings. The convenience for those who travel a lot is the monthly and annual subscription.
The personal monthly pass has a cost of € 35.00 and is valid for the calendar month shown on the subscription or on the top-up receipt. This subscription allows an unlimited number of trips in the territory of Rome. The Impersonal Monthly pass, with the same characteristics, allows two people to travel because it is transferable. Monthly cost: € 53.00.
The annual subscription, which is valid for 365 days, costs € 250.00 and allows unlimited travel throughout the period.
The ideal solution for tourists who stay in Rome for a few days are time tickets for 24, 48 and 72 hours, which allow unlimited travel on public transport without any limitation for the duration of validity from the first stamping.
For people over 70 with an Isee income of less than 15 thousand euros there is a dedicated card that allows the use of public transport free of charge.
The monthly pass for unemployed, valid for the calendar month shown on the top-up receipt, costs 16.00 euros and allows an unlimited number of trips.
