Treviso Airport Buses to Venice (2016)
Ryanair, one of several European low-cost airlines, has flights that connect Venice with London (Stansted), Liverpool (John Lennon), Brussels (Charlerol), Hahn (90 km from Frankfurt), and Girona (an airport on the Costa Brava, 110 km from Barcelona).
At least, that's what the timetable suggests: In reality, the airline uses Treviso Airport, (TSF), which is about 26 km or 16 miles from Venice, or considerably farther away than Venice's own Marco Polo Airport. Other budget carriers that use Treviso Airport include BelleAir, Transavia, Wizzair, Germanwings, and SkyTrain.
If you're headed for Venice from Treviso Airport, the easiest--and cheapest--way to get there is to take the connecting coach service. Bus times coincide with flight arrivals and departures, and the fare is much cheaper than a taxi. (It's also far less expensive than a private car with driver, which could cost more than your airline ticket.)
Two bus companies offer frequent scheduled service between TSF and Venice's Piazzale Roma with intermediate stops in Mestre, on the Venetian mainland. Buses are modern air-conditioned coaches with ground-level baggage compartments.
ATVO buses require 70 minutes to cover the distance between TSF and Venice's Piazzale Roma, or 55 minutes to the Mestre railroad station.
Barzi Bus Service
Barzi takes 40 minutes to cover the distance between TSF and Venice, with a single stop in Mestre. (Unfortunately, Barzi's Venice stop has been moved from Piazzale Roma to the less convenient parking island of Tronchetto.)
