Tickets and passes for Rome’s metro

In Rome, the metro, buses, trams, and suburban trains share the same fare system.

To make trips by public transportation, it’s usually the most convenient to buy a single ticket (BIT). They cost €1.50, allow unlimited transfers between lines, and are valid for 100 minutes after validation.

Another option is to purchase a pass. It can be valid from one day to one month but are rarely worth the money.

You can buy tickets and passes at kiosks, tobacco shops, or ticket machines in the metro stations. It’s also possible to buy them online via your smartphone or directly pay for your trips with your bank card, using the Tap&Go system.
