Primary tabs

The Green pass controls continue also on board public transport. Moreover, since December 25, to get on buses, trams, subways and trains the mask type Ffp2 is required. The green pass is required for all those aged 12 years and over, also to use public transport. To get on buses, streetcars, subways and regional trains it is necessary the basic certificate (therefore, the so-called super green pass is not necessary). The "basic" certificate is also obtained with a negative swab. It is valid for 48 hours if the swab is rapid; 72 hours if it is molecular. The green pass is necessary from the age of 12 years. People exempted from the vaccination campaign are not required to have it, but in this case, medical certification must be shown. Police, Carabinieri and Local Police, in agreement with the public transport companies operating in the area, will be engaged in verification activities, at random, on the possession of the green certificate among bus and metro passengers, with controls also at stops and terminals. Police checks will be carried out in particular at bus stops and terminals, and will alternate static checks with others carried out by itinerant teams. As far as the Police and Carabinieri are concerned, staff from all the police stations and companies present in the area are assigned to checks on passengers' green passes. Controls are carried out throughout the day and will be concentrated on the ground at the stops on the three subway lines. The Roma-Nord and Roma-Lido railway lines are also affected. Under the lens, during peak hours, in particular, there are the most crowded junctions: Termini, Tiburtina, Anagnina and Flaminio.

In accordance to the decree on the green pass, in force until March 31, even the staff of transport companies is authorized to carry out checks and to also check whether the passenger is in order. The penalty for those found without a green pass ranges from 400 to 1,000 euros. Regarding the travel rules, the on board rules remain the same: compulsory mask (Ffp2 type is required); the vehicles’ capacity in service on the entire public transport network is 80 percent. On the Atac website page it is possible to know the most crowded time slots on the metro and railways. It is also possible to use the moovit app to find out how crowded the buses are. It should be remembered that there is an active plan to strengthen the ordinary transport network with additional services. In particular, there are the "S" bus lines (however, suspended for the holidays, until December 31) thirteen special connections, carried out with Gran Turismo buses, in support of the ordinary network and designed in particular for students and commuters, but open to all passengers (normal Metrebus tickets valid for the Rome area are used on board). The connections link the main public transport hubs with the Termini area and they are operative from 7.00 to 10.00 a.m. and from 1.00 to 4.00 p.m. Only the S15, does not reach Termini, but connects the Acilia station of Roma-Lido with Piramide on the B metro and the Ostiense station and is on the road in the afternoon from 1.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. Taxis and NCCs do not require a green pass. The Green Pass is not required aboard cabs and cars used for rental service with driver (up to nine seats, including the driver), but the mask is compulsory.
