Milan Transport Tickets and Travel Cards

Milan Transport Tickets and Travel Cards

One-way tickets, 24 or 72-hour passes, weekly travel cards... discover all the types of ticket and transport cards available in Milan .

All the tickets and travel cards are valid for all of Milan’s means of transport: urban buses , trams , Milan Metro and urban trains.

You can purchase the transport tickets in the various metro stations, in the off-licenses and in any of Milan’s parking meters. From 2020 you'll have to load tickets onto an electronic card, RicaricaMi, of personal use.

Most useful tickets for tourists

Single ticket.

A single ticket covers areas Mi1, Mi2, and Mi3 and is  valid for 90 minutes since it is first punched into the validating machine. You can change metro lines during this time, but you cannot leave the metro station and then come back and use the same ticket . The price of a single urban ticket costs € 2 ( US$ 2.20).

24-hour travel card

The one-day travel card is valid for 24 hours since it's first punched into a validating machine. This means that if you validate your travel pass at 1:30 pm you can use the transport until 1:30 pm the next day. It covers areas Mi1, Mi2, and Mi3 and costs  € 7 ( US$ 7.60) .

72-hour travel card

The two-day travel card permits unlimited travel and is valid for 72   hours since it's first validated, costing € 12 ( US$ 13.10).

Ticket for your luggage

You'll sometimes have to buy a separate ticket for your luggage, depending on its size, and note that if you have more than one suitcase, you might not be allowed to get on the metro, tram, or bus.

The suitcases which can be carried onboard are very similar to the dimensions of the ones allowed on an airplane. The small ones (50 centimeters) are allowed on for free and the larger ones (50 x 90 centimeters) must have their own Luggage ticket. Suitcases over 90 cm are not allowed on Milan’s public transport, so you might want to think about taking another means of transport because you could be fined if your luggage is too large.

Other tickets and travel cards

10 standard tickets.

The price of 10 standard tickets is € 18 ( US$ 19.60), which saves you a little money compared to if you were to purchase 10 separate single tickets. This ticket can only be used by one person.

Weekly 2x6 ticket

This travel card is not very useful for visitors. It allows you to travel twice a day for 6 days during the same week for € 8.40 ( US$ 9.20).

Evening ticket

This ticket gives you unlimited access from 8 pm until the end of the service . The price of the ticket costs € 3 ( US$ 3.30).

Special tickets for the Fiera Milano (Rho Fiera)

A ticket to the Fiera Milano on Milan Metro’s line 1 costs € 2.55 ( US$ 2.80) per journey. This ticket will allow you to change lines and take other means of transport for 105 minutes after first validating it.

Travel Cards

As well as the already mentioned tickets, Milan’s public transport system also has weekly, monthly, and annual travel cards. These cards are not so useful for tourists unless you're planning on staying in Milan for over a week, as the card itself costs € 10 ( US$ 10.90).

The Integrated Fare System (STIBM)

The system extends to all municipals within the City of Milan metropolitan area and the Province of Monza and Brianza.

The system uses the City of Milan as the reference point where surrounding areas have then been divided into circular sections each representing a fare zone.

The tickets and travel cards will be valid for use with the ATM transport network and suburban public transport lines operating within the Integrated Fare System (STIBM) area.

All the innovations of the The fare system

The fare system.

The The system uses the City of Milan as the reference point where surrounding areas were divided into circular sections , 5kms wide, each representing a fare zone were an identification code has been assigned.

The City of Milan has 21 municipalities bordering with it ( refer to the table below ) and the Rho Fieramilano station (Metro Line 1). This area corresponds to 3 fare zones and is identified by codes Mi1 - Mi3 .

The fare zones following Mi3 are categorised according to their distance from Milan, and can be identified by codes Mi4 to Mi9 ( refer to the table ). Each municipals’ stops and stations are assigned to a single fare zone.

Immagine mappa nuovo sistema tariffario integrato del bacino di mobilit&grave STIBM

3 zone travel tickets Mi1 - Mi3 allow you to travel:

  • Metro Lines 1, 3 and 5
  • Metro Line 2 from Assago Milanofiori Forum and P.za Abbiategrasso Chiesa Rossa to Cologno Nord and Cascina Burrona (inclusive)

In order to travel from Milan to the stations of Cernusco S. N., Villa Fiorita, Cassina de' Pecchi, Bussero (located in the Mi4 fare zone) a 4 zone travel ticket (Mi1 - Mi4 ticket) is required; to stations of Villa Pompea, Gorgonzola, Cascina Antonietta (located in the Mi5 zone), a 5 zone travel ticket (Mi1 - Mi5 ticket) is required; to Gessate (located in the Mi6 zone), a 6 zone travel ticket (Mi1 - Mi6 ticket) is required.

The tickets and travel cards will be valid for use with the ATM transport network, suburban public transport lines and Trenord rail lines operating within the Integrated Fare System (STIBM) area.

The Fares Calculation

The fare between two locations , i.e. the starting point and the destination of the journey, is calculated on the basis of the number of zones travelled (increasing in value with each additional zone travelled).

In Milan, the minimum fare that can be purchased is 3 fare zones (Mi1 - Mi3). In all other municipals of the System, the minimum fare that can be purchased is equal to 2 zones and costs the same as the minimum fare ticket price. This ticket also applies for journeys within the same municipal and between municipals belonging to the same fare zone. For each additional zone the cost of the ticket increases, therefore the 3 zone ticket costs €2.20, the 4 zone ticket €2.60 etc.

In order to travel to Milan, the following distinction has been made between tickets, weekly/monthly/annual travel cards:

  • for ordinary tickets, 10 trip tickets, daily tickets, 3 day tickets and weekly travel cards the minimum price that can be purchased is 3 zones (ordinary ticket price, €2.20); these tickets allow you to travel throughout the City of Milan and up to 21 municipalities within the Mi3 zone;
  • to travel in the municipal of Milan there are monthly and annual urban travel cards available. In order to travel between Milan and the 21 municipals in the Mi3 zone and between Milan and Rho Fieramilano station on the Metro Line 1, it’s necessary to purchase monthly and annual travel cards which are valid for 3 zones.

Traveling between Milan and the 21 Municipals of the Mi3 zone

For this type of journey, the fare purchased must include the Mi1 zone . If you travel between Milan and the 21 municipalities in the Mi3 zone or between Milan and the Rho Fieramilano station (Metro Line 1), you must purchase a fare from 3 Mi1-Mi3 zones (e.g. the ordinary ticket €2.00).

If you travel between Milan and the localities within the Mi4, Mi5, Mi6, Mi7, Mi8 and Mi9 zones you need to buy a fare from 4 to 9 zones or Mi1 - Mi4, Mi1 - Mi5, etc. up to Mi1 - Mi9.

For example:

  • from Milan (Mi1 zone) to Rho Fieramilano station (Metro line 1) (Mi3 zone) = 3 zone Mi1 - Mi3 fare
  • from Milan Loreto station (Metro Line 1, Mi1 zone) to Sesto San Giovanni (Mi3 zone) = 3 zone Mi1 - Mi3 fare
  • from Milan (Mi1 zone) to San Vittore Olona (Mi6 zone) = 6 zone Mi1 - Mi6 fare
  • from Trezzano sul Naviglio (Mi4 zone) to Milan (Mi1 zone) = 4 zone Mi1 - Mi4 fare

Traveling around the suburbs

In order to travel between suburban locations, a fare from 2 to 7 zones must be purchased, depending on the number of zones travelled.

  • from Monza (Mi4 zone) to Arcore (Mi5 zone) = 2 zone Mi4-Mi5 fare
  • from Gessate (zone Mi6) to Vimodrone (zone Mi3) = 4 zone Mi3-Mi6 fare

The minimum fare that can be purchased in the suburban area is 2 zones even if you travel between municipals located in the same fare zone or between stops located within the same municipal. Since there are no valid travel tickets in a single fare zone, it is necessary to purchase the one that includes the required zone and the previous zone or the next zone , for example:

  • 2 zones Mi3 - Mi4 fare
  • 2 zones Mi4 - Mi5 fare
  • 2 zones Mi6 - Mi7 fare
  • 2 zones Mi7 - Mi8 fare

If travelling between suburban locations, you cross Milan borders, it’s necessary to purchase the Mi1 fare zone; the fare is therefore equal to the fare zones included between Mi1 and the fare zone of the furthest location from Milan included in the journey, for example:

  • from Pero (Mi3 zone) to Gessate (Mi6 zone) = 6 zones Mi1 - Mi6 fare
  • from Monza (Mi4 zone) to Abbiategrasso (Mi7 zone) = 7 zones Mi1 - Mi7 fare

Warning : the fare between two locations may vary depending on the route of the lines used, for example:

  • from Assago (Mi3 zone) to Rozzano (Mi3 zone) using the 328 line = 2 zones Mi3 - Mi4 fare
  • from Assago (Mi3 zone) to Rozzano (Mi3 zone) using the metro Line 2 + tram 15 = 3 zones Mi1 - Mi3 fare

Ordinary tickets and travel cards

The following ordinary tickets are available with the The Fare System:

  • Ordinary ticket Mi1 - Mi3 : the time validity from the first validation varies with the number of zones purchased: 75 minutes for two zones + 15 minutes for each additional zone. In Milan, the minimum fare that can be purchased is 3 zones and is valid from the first validation for 90 minutes;

A lot of planning and budgeting goes into any travel plan. Every traveler wants the best value for their money and to ensure that they have seen everything that a destination has to offer. One of the best ways to do this is by using a travel card. The travel cards in Milan – Milan Pass and Milano Card – will help you plan better and offer great convenience. Here is how they do it:

Big Savings You can save up to 20%-50% of your tour costs with both the Milan Pass and Milano Card. A major chunk of any travel goes towards local transport. Both the cards offer free public transport and the Milan Pass even offers a HOHO Bus tour making sure you save big time on transport. You also get free and discounted tickets to attractions with the passes. Milan is the perfect place for recreation and the cards also have discount vouchers for shopping, restaurants and entertainment.

Better Planning You will avail free resources like a guide book and map to help you plan your trip better. You can also check out your free attractions and allocate time and money to the other attractions accordingly. With the Hop-on Hop-off Bus tour option in the Milan Pass you don’t even have to plan, just follow the bus itinerary and you are good to go!

Upgrade opportunities The Milan travel passes offer free and paid upgrades to an exciting range of attractions, tours and experiences. You may have to spend additional if you purchase tickets separately but with the Milan pass you can upgrade your experiences at negligible costs.

Save Time Often travelers waste time waiting in queues at attractions, with the Milan pass you just have to show the pass at the free attractions to get in. Even figuring out local transport is a big task in a foreign city, especially where you are not comfortable with the language. However, with the travel guidebook and HOHO tours, you can easily save time on finding the best mode of transport and reach your destination quicker.

Freebies The Milan Pass and the Milano card offer many freebies. The Milan Pass comes with exciting tours like wine tasting tour and outlet shopping tours as well as a map and guidebook.

Milan Public Transport - Tickets and Travel cards

Milan is a vibrant city with several attractions and historical landmarks. Getting to these places is made easier with the Milan public transport. If you are in Milan for a short visit or staying here for a longer duration, buying a ticket or travel pass is necessary to use the metro, trams, and buses provided for public transport. The tickets and travel passes are offered by Azienda Trasporti Milanesi (ATM), the organization that manages public transport within Milan. ATM is owned by the Milan municipality (Comune di Milano) and through its subsidiaries, it even operates the Copenhagen underground.

What are the various available tickets/travel cards?

There is a wide variety of tickets and travel passes available. These passes/cards range from an ordinary ticket valid for 90 minutes up to an annual travel card of 1 year. Before going into further details about each available card type, we need to know about the fare zones in Milan. There are 8 fare zones roughly concentric in shape representing Milan and neighboring municipalities. With the urban zone representing the city center, other zones are named Mi3, Mi4, and so forth, up to Mi9. There is an increment in fare as we move further up the zones. To keep it simple, only Urban zone fares are discussed going forward. More details on the entire fare system are on this ATM webpage .

  • Ordinary ticket lasting 90 minutes from the time of first validation and costs 2.20€
  • Daily pass valid for 24 hours from first validation and costs 7.60€
  • 3-day pass valid for 3 consecutive days from the day of first validation up to the end of service on the third day. Costs 13€
  • Weekly travel card valid only from Monday to Sunday of the same week and costs 18.50€ (for the Mi1-Mi3 zone)
  • Monthly travel card valid for one calendar month and costs 39€
  • Annual travel card valid for 12 consecutive months and costs 330€

Which ticket/travel pass should I buy?

So this will be mainly based on the duration and how often one uses public transport. If you are in Milan for a short visit of 1 day or a few hours, go with the ordinary ticket. If you plan on using public transport multiple times throughout the day, then the daily pass might be the better option.

For anything more than a day, a travel pass is worth your while. For a short trip of 2-3 days in Milan, a 3-day pass would work out best. As you can avoid buying the ordinary ticket multiple times due to its limited validity of 90 minutes. If the travel duration is slightly longer than 3 days, a weekly pass might be a good choice. Although, be aware that even if the weekly travel card is purchased mid-week, say on a Wednesday. It will only last up to the Sunday of the same week. Depending on the duration and day of the week, it is useful to decide between a 3-day pass and a weekly travel card.

On the other hand, if you are in Milan for more than 2 weeks, the monthly travel card works best. Likewise, for anything more than 9 months annual travel card is preferable. Although the fares for the monthly and annual travel cards might seem high, various concessions and subsidies are available. The discounts on travel cards in Milan are based on age and income. Children under the age of 14 are allowed to travel for free on public transport. For people under the age of 27, the monthly and annual travel card costs 22€ and 200€ respectively. Give this page a read if you want to know more about the reduced-rate travel card in Milan. It might be particularly useful if you are a student in Milan who uses public transport for your daily commute.

Why do I need a travel card?

The travel pass would save you the hassle of buying a ticket before every journey. It is convenient and allows you to travel at any time. The travel card gives you access to buses, trams, and the metro. As long as you are in the Urban zone and the travel card is purchased for the same zone, it can also be used for accessing suburban railways. Also (mainly 😄), since public transport in Milan is not free. Although in all seriousness, transportation costs in Milan are comparable or slightly lower than its counterparts like other major cities around Europe.

How do I get a travel card?

Travel cards are charged to an electronic card. The electronic card can be obtained from ATM points, newsstands, tobacconists (Tabacchi), and bars. ATM points are designated offices within the subway stations and help carry out most operations. They are currently in the metro stops - Duomo, Centrale, Cadorna, Loreto, Garibaldi, Romolo, and Zara. Advice would be to book an appointment beforehand through the ATM app at any of these ATM points closest to you. The Electronic card is issued after filling in the Card Request Form along with a passport photo and valid ID proof. At ATM points, electronic cards are handed in immediately while there is a waiting time (around 2 weeks) if submitted through other outlets. The electronic card is valid for 4 years and costs 10€.

The electronic card obtained is empty to start with and will have to be charged based on your travel plan of choice like monthly or annual. The charging of electronic travel cards in Milan is through ATM points, automatic ticket machines at the stations, and other outlets like newsstands and tobacconists. Do not forget to validate your ticket before the start of your journey. Without stamping, tickets are considered invalid and could lead to fines. Likewise, travel cards are validated through the totem poles that are present in every station before using them the first time of their recharged plan. In case the electronic card is lost or stolen, a new card will be issued for a charge of 15€, and upon presenting a valid ID document.

Now that you know of various available tickets and travel cards for using Milan’s public transport, I hope it makes your planning and commutes much easy. If you are in Milan for a short visit then purchasing a single ticket or daily pass is a good choice. However, buying individual tickets each time you wish to travel becomes an inconvenience over long periods. Furthermore, having a travel card will be a better option economically for frequent users.

In Milan, on buses, trams and trolleybuses

If you travel only within Milan or between Milan and zone Mi3:

When are charges applied?

The charges might be applied a few days after the date of your journey depending on your bank’s transaction procedures.  You can see the charges in the reserved area of the ATM website (you have to sign up).

:: FAQ - 1) Travelling using contactless payment

What happens if i don’t tap out when leaving the station.

The system calculates the correct fare only if you tap in and tap out when leaving. If you don’t tap out the system recognizes where you entered but not where you exited or vice versa, therefore an extra cost will be applied which will be the maximum fare for where you entered to the furthest station. You must tap out when you leave even if the barriers are open.

What happens if, before getting off above ground transport, I don’t tap out?

On some lines running in Milan and surroundings, you must tap both in and out before getting off, this is because the fares can change depending on zones travelled. If you don’t tap in when getting on and tap out when getting off, the system can’t understand the trip travelled therefore cannot apply the best fare. In the paragraphs at the beginning of this page you can find a list of the lines that you must both tap in and tap out before getting off.

What happens if I change device during my journey?

The system can’t calculate the best fare because it is not able to understand that the journey has been done by the same person. Always use the same device for the whole journey: the same physical card, the same digital card, the same phone or the same watch.

What happens if after one try the barriers do not open?

Check the color of the card reader’s light, if it is red then it could be one of the cases named in the FAQs.

Do you need to register to pay contactless?

No, you don’t need to register but we do suggest that you register on atm.it and save your card: from your personal area you can see all payments and details from your trips.

Can I use the same card for other people to travel?

No. Any card or device can allow only one passenger at a time.

:: FAQ - 2) How much does a ticket cost?

Are there any commissions.

No, no commissions, you only pay the fare for the journey .

How is the ticket cost calculated?

The contactless system applies the cheapest fare. If you only take one trip , the system applies the cost of one ordinary ticket (fare based on how many zones travelled). If you take more trips within the duration of the ticket, the system will still apply the ordinary ticket price and nothing else. E.g., If you take multiple trips in the Mi1-Mi3 zone within 90 minutes, the system will apply the €2.20 fare because the fare permits multiple journeys so long as they are within the 90-minute ticket duration. If you take multiple trips throughout the day, from the fourth trip the system will apply the day fare as opposed to 4 standard tickets.

Does the cheapest fare get applied on a weekly and monthly basis as well?

No. For now, the system calculates the cheapest fare on a daily basis (24 hours from your first journey).

What is the daily fare?

7.60 € if travelling in zones Mi1-Mi3. You can find the daily fares for the other zones HERE .

:: FAQ - 3) Paymets

When is the payment taken.

The cost of the ticket is calculated the day after. The payment could be taken up to three days later (depending on the card circuit or bank). Extra costs (those applied when the system hasn’t been used correctly) are taken at least 4 days later.

Where can i see the payments?

On this site on your personal area. There you can see your payments and find out what they refer to by looking at the payment detail by the cost. Alternatively, you can see payments on your bank statement, they can be recognized by the payment detail “Cless Ticket ATM Milano”.

FAQ - 4) Extra costs or unknown payments

What is an extra cost.

It is a cost that is applied when the system cannot understand the exact journey taken during your trip.

In what cases are extra cost payments taken?

CASE 1. You used a card at the start but not the end of your journey , or you used one device to start your journey but a different device to finish your journey . In these cases the system cannot understand your exact journey therefore the maximum fare is applied as if you travelled to the furthest point from where you started your journey. CASE 2. On the metro you didn’t tap in when starting your journey but you tapped out upon leaving . In this case, the system cannot understand the starting station, therefore a total cost of 5€ is applied and taken in two separate payments on different days: 2.20€ (ticket cost) + 2.80€ (extra cost)

When and how are the extra cost payments taken?

Extra cost payments are taken at least 4 days after the journey in a separate payment . For this reason you will see more payments for the same journey.

Where can i see the extra costs paid?

In your personal area on this site , if you have registered your card. You can recognize the extra cost by reading the payment description. If you have registered your card in your personal area on this site, you can recognize the extra cost by reading the description by the payment amount. Alternatively, you can go the an ATM Point with your card or device used alongside an ID card to be able to see your payments.

How much are the extra costs?

For the Metro

  • +1.30 € if you tapped in at a station in Milan but didn’t tap out.
  • Between +0.50 and +1.80 € if you tapped in at a station outside of Milan but didn’t tap out.
  • 5 € If you didn’t tap in when entering. The total is the sum of two payments on different days: 2.20€ (ticket cost) + 2.80€ (extra cost)

For trams, buses and trolleybuses

  • +0.50 € on lines travelling in zones Mi1-Mi3, if the journey finishes within zone Mi3
  • between +0.40 and +1.30 € on these lines: 121, 130, 140, 165, 166, 327

I payment was taken for 1.30 euro for a journey that i didn’t take! Why?

Most likely it is an extra cost for a previous journey taken even days earlier that you didn’t tap out when leaving. To learn more check the answer above. If you have registered your card in your personal area, you can see the extra cost by reading the payment details. Alternatively, you can go to an ATM Point with the card used and your ID card to be able to check your payments.

An unrecognized payment was taken and i haven’t travelled recently! Why?

Most probably it’s an extra cost from a journey taken even days ago which when entering or exiting you didn’t tap your card at the metro or when getting off above ground transport. Not following the steps, the system applies an extra cost as it cannot determine the correct journey taken. If you have registered your card on this site you can recognize the extra cost by reading the payment description next to the amount. Alternatively, you can go to an ATM Point with the card used and your ID card to be able to check your payments.

I received an SMS from my bank saying that ‘’a payment of XX euro has been authorized”. Why?

It is a pre-authorization payment by the banking circuit and not dependent on our system. Depending on the circuit, amounts between 2 and 10 euros. The circuit with then take the correct fare based on it’s operations (payment cancellations/refunds…)

Why doesn’t my card work?

  • The card isn’t part of the accepted circuits
  • The card is insolvent (the account doesn’t have enough funds for the transaction, the card is blocked or other reasons)
  • The card has expired
  • The card is part of the accepted circuits but it isn’t contactless .

So, if you entered the metropolitan using a contactless payment and you need to change to get one of the S lines at one of the interchanging stations (Porta Venezia, Repubblica, Garibaldi or Dateo) you must exit the metropolitan tapping out at the contactless barriers, then buy a new ticket for the S lines.
