Useful tools and apps for public transportation in Rome

Tap & Go

Rome’s transportation authority (ATAC) has implemented an innovative system to directly pay for public transportation trips with a bank card, without the need to purchase tickets in advance.

This option is very convenient for short-stay visitors who will make occasional trips by public transportation.

With the Tap&Go system, you automatically pay the lowest fare, depending on the number of rides you make on a day. This way, you don’t have to worry about which ticket or pass to buy.

All you need is a bank card that allows contactless payment. If you want to check the number of journeys made and those already paid for, ATAC offers you the Tap&Go app.

For more information, see our guide on the Tap&Go system.
