The Azienda Trasporti Milanesi (ATM) is the public transport network in Milan which comprises 120 tram, trolley and bus lines, as well as three metro lines. Single 90-minute tickets from the ATM cost 1.50 EUR and are available from newsstands, bars and automatic ticket machines in metro stations. They are valid for all trams and buses, or for one metro ride, or suburban ride to the urban part of Milan.

Taxi
Milan features a taxi service operated by private companies and licensed by the city of Milan. All taxis are the colour white. If taking a taxi to Malpensa, the window sticker should read ‘Taxi autorizzato per il servizio aeroportuale lombardo’, indicating an adjusted taximeter for the route and paying only the displayed fare. Taxis without the sticker may double the fare. A few taxis accept credit cards. Prices: *Initial price: 3,10 EUR (6,20 EUR after 7pm) *Each kilometer: 0,67 EUR *Each hour: 20,60 EUR *Extra charge for night: 3,10 EUR

The streets in the city centre of Milan are continuously congested, day and night. Parking space is also very difficult to find, and hotel parking or private garage is expensive.

Car parks, run by ATM, are open from 7am to 8pm and parking costs 2,60 EUR for eight hours.

Tickets for this train are valid for 75 minutes from the time they are stamped and can be used on other transport services, as with metro tickets.

ATM tram and buses stop running about 2am. From 8pm to 2am the Radiobus shuttle service, also operated by ATM, makes it possible to return from the central part of Milan to the western, northern and northeastern outskirts.
