Brief history: Initial plans from early 1914 to 1938 included the construction of seven lines.
Finally, in 1964 the first line opened with 21 stations, from Lotto to Sesto Marelli.
Nowadays, there are 5 lines operating with 106 stations and constant expansions.
All stations and some wagons have overhead screens with directions and arrival time estimates.
Usually, there are pre-recorded announcements of station names and exit directions both in Italian and English.
A single ticket costs €2.20, is valid for 90 minutes, and combo for also tram, bus, trolley, and suburban lines.
There are options for 10 trip tickets, daily tickets, 3-day tickets, and weekly travel cards.
Contactless options are also available. You charge your bank card and tap on the designated area of the orange gates.
On weekdays, the service runs from 5:40 am to 0:30. It might differ on Saturdays and holidays.
