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. You can pay with coins, banknotes of 5 to 20 euros, or a credit card.
Alternatively, you can use ACTV bus tickets, which are available at ACTV vaporetto ticket booths, ACTV ticket machines, tobacco shops, and many newsstands.
After you've scanned or swiped 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.
If you're boarding a cruise ship, get off at the first stop, which is Marittima.
The People Mover station is just outside the port. Follow the red-and-white pavement markings to the cruise basin, where signs will direct you to your ship.
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.
