Venice People Mover
More People Mover photos
The People Mover's Piazzale Roma station is at the southwest corner of the square, between the Garage San Marco (left) and the larger Garage Comunale or City Garage.
Buy your ticket at one of the easy-to-use vending machines, which have touch-screen instructions in Italian, English, German, and Spanish. (The most recent versions of the machines accept coins, credit cards, or banknotes of 5, 10, or 20 euros. Change is given in coins.)
After you've scanned your ticket at the station entrance, take the escalator to the platform level. (A lift is available for travelers with pets, strollers, wheelchairs, or bulky luggage.)
Upstairs, electronic signs tell when the next train will reach the station.
When your People Mover train arrives, you'll be able to board through the sliding glass doors.
For a view of the tracks, board the front or back compartment of the People Mover.
The People Mover's Tronchetto station is near the road leading into the island, between the parking garage and the water. (When we took this photo on the People Mover's first day of operation, a Lotus sports car was parked outside).
A sign near the parking garage directs travelers to the People Mover station.
