The trams of Rome

Tickets and schedule

Tickets and passes

The tickets sold by ATAC can be used to travel by tram, bus, suburban train, and the subway in Rome.

A one-way ticket (BIT) costs €1.50 and allows you to make unlimited transfers to other methods of transportation in the city. The ticket is valid for 100 minutes after validation.

On the other hand, if you plan to make multiple trips during your stay, some of the passes may be convenient for you. You can check the details of all the available passes in our guide.

Please, note that it’s not possible to buy tickets in the tram. You need to purchase them in advance at tobacco shops, kiosks, or ticket machines at metro stations.

There’s also the possibility of buying tickets online with your phone, using one of the B+ apps from ATAC.

Schedule

Like most public buses in Rome, the streetcars start operating daily at 5:30 a.m. In the evening, the last streetcars leave the final stops of each line at midnight.

The up-to-date timetables can always be consulted at the stops of each line. On the other hand, the frequency is normally 6 minutes on all lines but may vary by season.

For trips after midnight, it’s possible to use the night buses. More information can be found in this guide on buses in Rome.

Consult waiting times

The streetcars are equipped with a satellite system that allows ATAC to constantly track the location of the vehicles. With this information, the company has created a tool that can be used to consult waiting times for trams and buses throughout Rome.

You can also check the waiting times on your smartphone, using the Roma Mobilità app or the Muoversi a Roma tool. Neither is available in English, but both have intuitive and user-friendly interfaces.

To look up details on the arrival of the next tram, you’ll need the identification code of your stop. It’s five digits long and can be found on the lower left side of the information display.

With these tools, it’s also possible to enter the line number to see where the trams are currently on the route.
