Rome City Buses
B are the mainstay of Rome's public transit network, with scores of routes crisscrossing the city and extending into outlying districts such as Lido di Ostia. For route maps in PDF format, see the ATAC public-transit agency's English-language map links. (The links don't work in all browsers, so if you can't get a map to load, try Internet Explorer or Firefox.)
City bus stops are clearly marked, and city buses are easy to recognize: They're usually light grey or orange, with an ATAC logo on the side and large electronic destinations signs on the front.
