There are six tram routes running in Rome, and although they serve nearly all parts of the city, most of the lines serve eastern Rome to the east of the Termini railway station. New environmentally friendly trams have been introduced to the Rome tram system.
Met.Ro (Metro Roma) is the Rome metro service with Line A (orange) and Line B (blue) running through the city.
Regional rail lines connect Rome - Lido, Rome - Pantano and Rome - Viterbo.
Animals (dogs, cats and birds) may travel on lines A and B and on the first and last carriages of the regional rail lines, provided they are restrained (in a carry cage or muzzled and on a leash). A full price ticket is required. Note: Guide dogs (seeing-eye dogs) travel free.
One bike is allowed per passenger; payment is required unless the passenger holds a Metrebus pass. Groups travelling with more than five bicycles must make arrangements (and payment) 24 hours in advance:
Baby carriages/buggies are allowed but must not block the passageways.

Tickets are sold in tobacconists and newsstands in Rome and Lazio, in ATAC shops and automated ticket machines in stations.
The integrated ticket, Metrebus, allows the ticket holder access to all public transport in Rome (excluding the direct rail link between Termini and Fiumicino Airport). Tickets must be bought before the start of the journey, from any metro station or authorised vendor.
Season tickets (monthly or annual) give access to all public transport services within the Metropolitan area of Rome:
The Roma Pass provides three days' access to most museums and monuments, as well as most public transport in Rome. They can be purchased in Tourist Information Offices (Punti Informativi Turistici - PIT), all participating museums and monuments, as well as in other locations.
All tickets for transportation must be validated before the start of the journey, using the validation machines located at the entry gates of the metro stations, within the entrance area of all rail stations and at the rear of buses and trams. During the journey, a ticket inspector may ask to see the ticket; a passenger without one may be fined.
