Tour buses will be removed from the centre of Rome


Municipal authorities in Rome have taken the decision to restrict movement of tourist buses — in a short time they will closed the entrance to the historic centre of the Italian capital.

It is expected that the ban tourist buses will come into force from 1 January 2018, if approved during the discussions of these standards in the mayor's office planned for the period from 12 to 16 December 2016. The new provisions are part of a larger project aimed at preserving Rome's historic centre, reducing congestion cars of the city streets and reduce air pollution from smog.

If the ban tourist buses in the centre of Rome yet to be introduced, run through the historic streets of the city will be the only buses of this type, designed to transport elementary school students or are disabled, the rest of the tourists will be offered seats on regular urban transport. This idea to optimize road traffic was perceived ambiguously — if local residents approved the proposed city hall decision, the operators of the tourist bus routes are sure that public transport is not convenient for guests of the Italian capital who are not familiar with the schedule and plan movements of buses.

Passengers should have travel document or Metrebus BIT before boarding public transport. Buy bus tickets in Rome at the box office located near the entrance to the subway, vending machines at train stations, in newspaper and tobacco kiosks. When planting is necessary to punch the ticket.
