How to get around in the centre of Bologna using public transport
Bologna does not have an underground railway but does have a tram system run by ATC www.atc.bo.it/orari_percorsi/planner/plannerEN.asp. The lines connecting the station with the exhibition centre are 35 and 38.
The Bologna city centre has restricted traffic, so cars and motorcycles cannot drive around freely. The best way to visit the city is therefore to use public transport. For further information, go to the section on From the center of Bologna.
