Public transportation is widely used in Florence. The Autolinee Toscane city buses offer multiple fares:
• Ordinary – A single use 90-minute ticket.
• Multiple-ride ticket: Four 90-minute rides on one single ticket.
They can be purchased from:
• Authorized “Autolinee Toscane” sale points across the city (usually business with the company sticker on their shop windows).
• Bus ticket booths within the Santa Maria Novella train station.
The best and cheapest way to move by bus in Florence is buying your tickets ahead of time. Bus drivers usually have few tickets on board, and they are more expensive.
