Rome transport tickets
In Rome, visitors can purchase different types of transport tickets and travel cards depending on the number of days they stay in the city and how often they plan on using public transportation there.
Types of transport tickets
One-way ticket (BIT)
The BIT ticket lasts 75 minutes since its first validation and allows for unlimited transfers between the metro, buses, trams and urban trains. The only transfer that is not allowed is to leave the metro and return (by the metro turnstiles), even if it’s in the 75 minutes of validity. The ticket costs € 1.50 (US$ 1.60).
MetroBus 24 hours
This ticket allows unlimited public transportation from the moment the ticket is validated until midnight of the same day. The MetroBus 24 hours costs € 7 (US$ 7.50).
MetroBus 48 hours
The 48-hour ticket allows unlimited use of Rome's public transport for 48 hours from the time it is first used. The price is € 12.50 (US$ 13.50).
MetroBus 72 hours
It allows unlimited use of public transport for 72 hours from the time it is used for the first time. The price is € 18 (US$ 19.40).
