Travel by public transport

Many destinations within the towns and cities and around the regions can be quickly and easily reached by underground or local suburban railway. The larger cities have night buses that run until late into the night. For all public transport and shorter trips by train, tickets must be bought from a machine prior to travel. Ticket prices vary according to distance, divided into so-called "tariff zones". For longer stays, day or week passes are better value than individual tickets. The penalty for travelling without a valid ticket is a fine of at least 30 euros on all buses and trains.
