Ride the subway paying with your contactless bank card

In Milan, the first city in Italy, it is possible to ride the subway paying directly to the turnstile with contactless cards of Mastercard, Visa, Maestro and VPay circuits.

HOW TO DO IT
If your card shows the symbol  Contactless  and you are enabled to contactless payments, look for the reader on a recognizable orange-and-gray turnstile in the subway stations. Simply bring the contactless card or device closer to the incoming and outgoing turnstiles for each trip.

ATTENTION: remember to always use the same card, both when entering and leaving the station.

If you make more trips during the day, always using the same card or contactless device in and out, you can benefit from the best daily rate.

If the reader detects more than one contactless card or device, the credit doesn’t get deducted by any of them and the turnstile will not open. To avoid it, choose which device or card you want to use and bring it closer to the reader.

You can also use your digital card on different devices (telephone, smartwatch, ...). But be careful: the device used at the entrance must be the same for the exit.

Registration to the ATM site is not mandatory for traveling with contactless cards. By subscribing to the reserved area, however, you can check your charges.

 

HOW MUCH DOES THE TICKET COST BY PAYING WITH THE CONTACTLESS CARD?

The new system automatically calculates, based on your entry and exit, what the fare of the ticket is, charging you the cheapest fare, even for the extra-urban metro routes and for the day tickets. The service does not provide additional costs.

In case of failure to pass/validate on exit, the maximum rate is applied.

 

CAN I RIDE A TRAM OR A BUS PAYING WITH THE CONTACTLESS CARD?

The service is currently active on the entire underground network and it is necessary that the journey starts on the metro. It is then possible to continue the journey on surface urban vehicles up to the time validity of the ticket.

For example, you can travel up to 90 minutes from the time of validation if you enter and exit the metro stations in the urban area, because an urban travel ticket has been activated. In the case of a trip outside the city limits, for example from Rho Fiera M1 to Duomo M1/ M3, the validity is 105 minutes from the time of the first validation.

 

PAYMENTS AND CONTROLS

During a control by ATM personnel, it is sufficient to present the payment card used at the time of validation.

For any information on the qualifications and operations of your card, contact your bank.
