Venice's People Mover elevated shuttle trains offer quick (and wheelchair-accessible) connections between three points on the edge of the city's historic center:

  • The Piazzale Roma, where locals and visitors arrive in the city by public bus, airport bus, taxi, or car.

  • The Marittima cruise terminal, where many passenger ships arrive and depart. (Caveat: The Marittima station is located just outside the Marittima port entrance, which means that passengers need to walk to or from their ships.)

  • The Tronchetto parking island, which has indoor and outdoor parking for thousands of cars and is also the arrival point for most tour buses.
