One of the easiest ways to get around Milan is to use the public transport of the ATM, the Azienda Trasporti Milanesi.

But how much does it cost moving with public transportation in Milan? Are there special subscriptions for young people and students?

In order to answer these widespread questions from students who come to Milan for the first time and who want to better organize moving in the university areas, we have decided to prepare a small guide of practice reading. Let’s go in order.

How much it costs to travel with transport to Milan

Getting around with transportation in Milan is quite convenient. The Lombard capital offers many alternatives for those who want to travel within the urban perimeter (and not only) in an efficient and economical way.

From buses to the subway, from trains to bike sharing services, you will certainly not struggle to find what is right for you. Most likely you will choose the ATM subscription service, with its dozens of lines able to reach every corner of the city.

If you prefer not to subscribe, you can take advantage of the classic ordinary ticket, which costs €1.50 and can be bought with credit card directly to the turnstiles, it has a duration of 90 minutes from the validation and allows a single access to public transport of ATM.

How much does it cost the ATM subscription

The ATM subscription allows you to travel as many times as you want in the period of validity that you have chosen, between week, month and year. The subscription is uploaded to an electronic card valid for four years and with a cost of issuing of 10 euros.

As for the cost, reference should be made to the Integrated Tariff System of Public Transport – STIBM, which entered into force in 2019, which divided the metropolitan area of Milan into different areas, starting from the city center, and introducing new tariff zones.

Given that each subscription can cover a different tariff zone, with different charges, we can only advise all interested students to take a look at the website and, at the bottom of the

For example, the cost of the urban subscription alone is of 39 euros per month and of 330 euros per year.

ATM subscription for students and under 26

The City of Milan has approved some permanent concessions for season tickets valid in the urban area, with a discount for all young people aged up to 26, without income limits:

  • EUR 22 monthly subscription;
  • EUR 200 annual subscription.

The same facilities are also granted to young people between the ages of 27 and 30, provided they have an ISEE of less than 28 thousand euro.

Another discounted subscription is also provided for evening students, without age limits: in this case it is possible to subscribe to a discounted monthly rate of 11 euros. But, of course, the subscription has some hourly restrictions: it can only be used from Monday to Friday from 5 pm to 8.30 pm and from 9 pm until the end of the service, while on Saturday from 1 pm to 8 pm. On Sundays the evening pass is not valid.

Finally, we remind you that if the student under 26 still intends to have a subscription for other areas in addition to that of the urban center, can always take advantage of a discount of 25% on the monthly or annual ordinary cost. The old “student rate” is no longer available.

How to apply for an ATM card

The ATM card can be requested:
– online on the website;
– in one of the ATM Points;
– in one of the authorized retail outlets located in the subway stations and above ground.

In order to make the request you need to bring a passport photo, a valid ID and tax number. You will also have to complete the application for issuing your electronic card. A receipt certifying that the application has been submitted shall be issued upon delivery of the form.

Where to pick up your ATM card

Il ritiro della tessera ATM può avvenire negli ATM Point, in cui il rilascio è – peraltro – immediato. È inoltre possibile ritirare la tessera nelle rivendite, circa 15-20 giorni dopo la richiesta, esibendo la ricevuta ottenuta al momento della presentazione del modulo.

The withdrawal of the ATM card can take place in the ATM Points, where the issue is moreover immediate. It is also possible to collect the card in the resale shops, about 15-20 days after the request, by showing the receipt obtained at the time of submission of the form.

How to recharge your ATM card

The card is handed over to applicants “empty”, that is before any balance loaded in it. So, what you need to do in order to use it, is to buy a subscription online, in the ATM Points or in the vending machines that are present in every metro station, or even in authorized stores or ATM machines.

What does the subscription ATM Milano include

The ATM Milano subscription includes the possibility to travel to the selected areas for the indicated period of time (weekly, monthly or annual). It is therefore not valid outside the planned routes.
