In the city
The entire transport network of underground,
trams, and buses is managed by the ATAC. The underground
include two subway lines: line A, crossing the city from
the western side (via Tuscolana - via Appia) to the Vatican
section, and line B, connecting the eastern zone (Rebibbia)
with the EUR (Exposizione Universale di Roma), crossing line A
near Termini Station. A new branch of the B line (B1) is under
construction, as is a third line, called C. A fourth line, line
D, is under development. The frequent archaeological findings
delay underground work.
The Rome Metro is part of an extensive
transport network made of a tramway network, several suburban
and urban lines in and around the city.
The main bus station is in front of Stazione
Termini. Daily and night bus are in service.
Romapass is a card that allows three days of
travel throughout the entire transport network.
