Milan boosts city transport services

Milan provides better and faster connections.

From Monday 4 September a reorganisation of bus, tram and metro routes will provide better and faster connections between the city centre and the outskirts.

Milan city hall and transport authority ATM have planned services to cover an extra one million kilometres per year with more efficient, punctual and widespread connections around the city, to the advantage of the 57 per cent of Milanese who choose public transport.

Route changes and new sections will improve tram lines 1 and 19 and bus lines 45, 47, 70, 77 and 82; in addition, service will be increased on lines 14, 63 and 75.

Several routes will be extended to cover more of the outlying areas, and a totally new bus line will be introduced: route 36, connecting the Cascina Merlata and Certosa districts with the M1 at Molino Dorino.

Weekend frequencies will also be boosted for bus, tram and metro lines.

Bilingual posters will explain the new routes, and ATM staff will distribute leaflets at important traffic nodes as the changes come into effect. You can view or download the detailed leaflet (in Italian) from the ATM website.
