Travelling by metro

You can buy your ticket from the all authorized ticket sellers, usually including Tabaccherias (you will recognize a tabaccheria by the big “T” sign, see the right image), ATM POINTS (underground stations) and automatic ticket machines (underground stations). Bus drivers are not allowed to sell bus tickets.

Owners of an Italian SIM card can text a message to the number 48444 containing the word ATM to get a regular ticket (2 euros) .
A further step in the digital transformation of Milan’s public transport: today you can travel on the metro by paying easily, fast and safe directly at the ticket gate with Mastercard, Visa, Maestro and VPay contactless cards. You only have to touch your contactless card on the reader when you enter and leave the station.


Travelling by tram and bus

You can buy tickets at the metro stations, in giornali (kiosk) or tabacchi (stores marked with “T”), but not on the bus or tram.
