A ticket for the entire network (75 minutes by bus + 1 Metro run) costs 1.5 Euro. Tickets for bus and subway can be purchased at vending machines, bars, tobacco shops and kiosks at the bus terminal. After 24:00 you can buy airline tickets on night buses. Tickets are also available daily, weekly, and monthly.

The cost of a ride to downtown is around 40/50 Euro, to which the following extras must be added:

A taxi run from the airport in Rome (or vice versa) takes about 50 minutes and should never exceed 90 minutes during peak hours (around 7: 30-9: 30 and 17: 30-19: 30).
