How to ride the People Mover:

Riding Venice's People Mover is easy: There's only one route, and the fare is €1,30 (regardless of where you board or get off). If you have a leftover ACTV bus ticket from Mestre or the Lido, you can use that instead of buying a People Mover ticket.

What to do first:

People Mover ticketLook for ticket-vending machines near the station entrances.

You can pay with euro coins , banknotes (€5, €10, or €20), or a credit card. The machines have instructions in four languages. (Ignore the monthly-ticket option, which is meant for daily commuters.)

After you've bought your ticket:

After you've bought your ticket, go to the entry checkpoint and hold your ticket under the scanner with the barcode up. When the barrier opens, go through and continue upstairs via the escalator or lift.

On the train level, you'll find a platform with glass walls and doors on both sides. An electronic sign will show the waiting time (usually no longer than a minute or two) until the next train.

When the train arrives, doors will open on the far side of the cars to let arriving passengers disembark. A moment later, the doors will open on your side, and you'll be able to step onto the train.

The ride between the Piazzale  Roma and Tronchetto takes just over three minutes, including a stop at the Marittima cruise basin. When you reach your station, simply wait for the doors to open and get off, then head downstairs to the station exit.

Hours of operation:

Monday to Saturday:

  • 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. year-round.

Sundays and holidays:

  • April-October: 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

  • November-March: 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
