Starting in 2009, the SITBus Shuttle began daily runs from Leonardo Da Vinci Airport (FCO) to two locations in Rome – the Roma Termini Train Station and also Piazza Cavour . SITBus Shuttle had previously been a fixture at Aeroporto Ciampino. Since 2009, they’ve brought another low-price transport option to FCO!
The SITBus Shuttle buses begin their routes at 5 AM – another plus for us early travelers as the Leonardo Express does not start until 05:52 AM. Currently, there are 33 runs during the day so this service is quite a viable option… and at only €8 a very reasonably priced option. The buses end their run TO the airport about 21:15. Coming from Fiumicino to Rome, the buses start at 07:00 and the last bus departs from the airport at 23:30 (The last Leonardo Express does leave at 23:36).
Purchasing SITBus Shuttle Tickets
Tickets can be purchased at: automatic distribution machines, tobacconist’s shops, coffee bars, newsagents and SITBus Shuttle points – which are primarily from your departure point. At Piazza Cavour, you can purchase the tickets as you get on the bus.
