The ATVO coach fromcosts €8,00 each way, or €15,00 for a round trip. It's by far your most convenient option if you're able to climb a few steps when boarding, since the coach has a luggage compartment underneath where you can stow your bags.
The ATVO stops are located on a strip of sidewalk between two vehicle lanes outside the arrivals and baggage-claim area. Look for the No. 2 stop ("Venezia Piazzale Roma" or "Venezia Express"), which is to the left of door D as you exit the terminal.
At Venice Marco Polo airport, you can buy tickets in several locations:
At the ATVO's ticket counter in the baggage-claim area.
At either of the two ATVO ticket counters in the arrivals area (one facing the exit from baggage claim, the other to the left of the exit).
From the ticket machines (three in baggage claim, and another three outside the terminal at the ATVO bus stops).
From the ATVO's staff at the bus stops, who will also provide information if you need it.
You can also order tickets online for specific dates only from the ATVO's Web site, with a discount for your advance purchase if you order two tickets or more.
When ordering online, you'll receive an e-mail with a PDF booking confirmation. Print out the PDF file or the e-mail and use it as your ticket when boarding.
Travel time to the Piazzale Roma is 20 minutes, and the bus has free Wi-Fi.

At the airport, you'll find a stamping machine next to the bus stop; at the Piazzale Roma, stamp your ticket in the machine behind the driver's seat unless the driver takes your ticket and punches it for you outside the bus.
ATVO buses are generally reliable, but it pays to have a backup plan--and money for a taxi--if the bus doesn't show up. (Not long ago, our daughter and grandson had a 7 a.m. flight from Marco Polo Airport, and the 5 a.m. bus from the Piazzale Roma failed to arrive. Fortunately, there were a couple of taxis waiting in the Piazzale Roma at that hour, so they managed to make their flight.)
