Roma - Lido tren
Suburban trains of Rome

Tickets and schedule

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

To make trips within the urban areas, it’s recommended to buy a single ticket (BIT). It costs €1.50 and enables unlimited transfers between lines and other forms of public transportation. From the minute you validate your ticket, you can use it for 100 minutes.

Another option is to purchase passes. These can be valid from one day to one month but are rarely worth the money.

As mentioned before, the Roma-Viterbo line has an outer-city route. Special tickets must be purchased to travel on this line.

You can buy any of the 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.

For detailed information, see our guide on tickets and passes for public transportation in Rome.


The suburban trains in Rome operate from 5:00 am to 10:00 pm, except for the Roma-Lido line which operates until 11:00 pm.
