    Metro and tram are the best option to moving in Milán, they are efectives, fast and cleans. Metro starts service about 5 in the morning and finish about midnight or 1 am. We bought the ticket for 48 hours and costs 5.50 euros.

    From Milan to Agrate Brianza by public transp

    by robbye77 Written Jul 4, 2008

    Hi there! You can reach the Centro Direzionale Colleoni by public trasportation in this way. Use underground n. 2 (MM2 - green) up to COLOGNO NORD. At the subway station there's a free shuttle service which runs all day long at least every 30minutes (more often in rush hours, less in the middle of the day).
    Mostly of people working in Agrate Brianza lives in Milan, easy and fast to reach from the city by own car but not that bad by public transportation. If your son would live here in summer it would be better live in town, as outside is pretty boring after work 'cause public transportation at night is quite bad.
    Just ask if you need more helps. Rgds, Roberto

    Milan Transportation Map

    Milan Airports, Train Stations, and Public Transportation Information

    Milan has five main train stations, three Metropolitan lines, and a public transportation network that is growing as I type.The Milan Transportation Map above shows Milan's three major subway lines, called Metropolitana and identified by signs with the background color that you'll see on the map and an "M". The three lines are Line (linea) 1, the red line, Line 2, the green line, and line 3, the yellow line. There is also the blue Passante Ferroviario, an urban rail line.

    The map only shows the lines in the center of Milan. These are the major urban stops that a tourist will be concerned with. The black boxes are lines that connect with railroad stations, the largest of which is Milano Centrale, in the north quadrant of the map. Where the line continues off our map, the label in capital letters gives you the line and last stop (direction).

    The Duomo is the center of Milan. Most of the tourist sites are within easy walking distance of the Duomo.

    Milan have a very good metro and tram system. Easy to reached most of the tourist place by this transport.
    1. There are two type of ticket; one ticket cost you 1 euro, valid for one trip+ 70 mins for bus or tram. This 70 mins valid after you start stamping your ticket. Its can use for both, metro+tram and certain bus. Another ticket, cost you 3 euro; can use for metro and tram for 24 hours. But you MUST stamp a ticket every time you use a service. All tickets can be purchased from machine at every metro station.
    2. For Metro; there are 3 main line for metro (MM1 red, MM2 green and MM3 yellow) and alos suburban loop (blue). All metro connected to major place like Duomo, Stazione Centrale, Cardorna and Loreto.
    3. For Tram;normally run every 10 mins. For a bus or tram stop, there are yellow colour sign displaying a route and timetable.

    Wow, this is a great system. Three main lines criss cross the city. Red and yellow both take you to the Duomo, and the green and yellow both take you to the train station. A little intimidating to figure out at first, make sure you know the "end stop" of the line you want, because this is how they are labeled at the trains. (i.e. "per S.Donato" or "per Sesto"). Automated ticket machines, each ticket is one euro.

    One way ticket is 1 Euro (you can use it for 90 minutes) and the ticket for the whole day is 3 Euro. Metro is closed after 12,30 am so you need to take a cab (cab number is 028989 or 024040) . For the lines you can check www.nbts.it/milano/mappa_metropolitana_1.htm

    Duomo Cherubs

    The Milan metro is called the ATM and consists of four lines

    Red MM1

    Green MM2

    Yellow MM3

    Blue Passante Ferroviario.

    It runs from 6am to midnight. We got a 24 hour ticket for 3 Euros, which was a bargain.

    Metro in Milan, fast and easy!

    by fonden Updated Apr 19, 2007

    Getting around in Milan with the metro is both easy and affordable. One ticket cost 1€ and works for an hour. A one-day ticket cost 3€. (I think you can use the same tickets at the buses too.) The trains are really clean and feels safe. The metro is opened from 6:15 to 00:14. You can get tickets at bars, tobacconists, stationery shops, newsstands, station agents and automatic multi-tariff dispensers. No problems at all!

    Getting around the city

    Old tram,,,

    Although there are some buses and many trams it's easier to use the 3 subway lines that run 5:30am-11:30pm(00:30 on saturdays) and reaches many parts of the city. There are single tickets(1euro) but the one-day ticket costs only 3 euro and it's valid for 24 hour from the time you validate it.

    Quick, Cheap and Fast - Use the Metro

    England supporters?

    Buy a daily Metro ticket (valid up to 24 hours from purchase time) for 3 euros and travel around Milan quickly. I prefer it to using the trams as they can tend to get stuck in traffic or a protest march (seems to be quite popular). The Metro lines are color coded to make navigation easy, this also includes the actual metro stations which have their signs in the color corresponding to line they are on (useful at junction stations).

    M as in Metro
    1 more image

    To get around in the central parts of Milan the easiest and best way is to take the metro. Just keep an eye for the big M, red signs with a white M on it.
    (Yes, very clever, it stands for Metro... ;) ).
    You buy your ticket in the ticket machine under ground, or in one of the newspaper stands. A ticket costs 1 euro and works for one trip, or if you change without leaving the metro, for 70 minutes.

    Metro

    by mrkokomo Written Jul 21, 2006

    It cost me a Euro for each trip. I bought tickets at the ticket vending machine. Milan is a small city and metro gets you to all the tourist attractions.

    To go to Linate airport, take metro to St. Basilla station and take Bus #73 to the airport. Buy your bus ticket (costs 1 euro) in the metro station. At airport, you can buy ticket at the bus station.

    Entrance to Duomo Station

    I found the underground railway system in Milan useful, although my hotel was at only a little distance from the town centre. The maps were simple to use to work out the best route and the clear signs at each station made it easy for me to find my way from platform to platform when I had to change trains. It was a quick, efficient way to get from place to place although the disadvantage of travelling along underground is missing the view of such a beautiful city that you have travelling above ground. There are clear timetables for each line available on the website listed and information on the other public transport services too.

    Milan Subway station

    Milan has 3 subway lines:

    - M1 - red line going from Sesto to Rho Fiera and Bisceglie (splitting after Pagano station) and stopping to Cairoli, Cordusio, Duomo and S. Babila;

    - M2 - green line going from Cologno Nord to Abbiategrasso and stopping to Stazione Centrale and S. Ambrogio;

    - M3 - yellow line going from Maciachini to San Donato and stopping to Stazione Centrale, Montenapoleone and Duomo.

    The 80km subway network is perfectly connecting all the important points of the town and is easily accessible.

    The metro runs from 5:30 am until 11:30 pm (00:30 am on Saturdays) and all the stations are usually located close to tram and bus stops.

    The easiest and cheapest way of moving around is by Subway. It works from 6 am to 1pm(2pm during weekends) and trains circulate quite often. Even if the security works efficaciouslyiot's a good thing checking always bags and backpack.
    Tickets cost 1,00 euro. You can buy them in the newsagent immediately outside the station and downstairs at the beginning of the metro-station. If you have to stay in Milan for only a day maybe it's better if you buy a daily ticket that costs 3,00 euro. There are also the weekly card, the monthly card and the yearly card.
    There are three routes:
    THE RED LINE: It was the first one and was bulit in the years 60s;it takes to the main places as the trade fair, the San Siro Stadium,piazza Duomo, corso Buenos Aires, the Cadorna railway station and piazzale Loreto.http://www.rajatabla.it/milano/metropolitana_linea_rossa.htm
    THE GREEN LINE: it reaches the main railway stations. Getting off Famagosta stop it's possible to take the bus going to Forum di Assago.http://www.rajatabla.it/milano/metropolitana_linea_verde.htm
    THE YELLOW LINE: it was the last to be done.http://www.rajatabla.it/milano/metropolitana_linea_gialla.htm
