Always make sure your driver switches the meter on at the start of your journey.

Editor’s Note

Alongside single tickets, you can also purchase tickets for longer periods, such as 24 hours (€5) and 72 hours (€7). These tickets give you unlimited travel on all ATB buses, the Funicolar and the Bergamo airport bus during your stay.

Useful Tips

The bus also stops near many of the main hotels in Bergamo, including The Best Western and San Marco, so you shouldn’t have to walk too far to your hotel.
When you’re travelling back to Bergamo airport, make sure you ask the driver if the bus is stopping at the airport, as not all of them do. Keep an eye out for a picture of a plane on the bus or for the word ‘Aeroporto’ on the front.
