Our fare system
The fare system in force in Bergamo’s province is a “zone” system.
With the zone system, the territory of the province has been divided into eight areas (Valle Seriana, Valle Brembana, Pianura Sud-Est, Pianura Sud Ovest, Pianura Sud, Lago d’Iseo, Val Cavallina e Val Borlezza, Val di Scalve e Via Mala), and each area in zones, each of which normally includes one or more town with their fractions.
The width of each area is about 7 km.
For the journeys on the line within the same zone the tariff A is applied; following the route of the line, for every passage of zone, counting the departure zone, corresponds a tariff step: one zone = A, two zones = B, three zones = C etc., even if you change bus and line, provided you connect.
Since all the stops and hamlets of the same centre belong to the same area, there are no changes in the rate for those who continue the route inside the same area as long as buses are used from the same company.
An exception to the system is the “semi-zone” (areas with urban characteristics), whereby those travelling between locations within the semi-zone itself is subject to a special tariff (A1).
In the Province of Brescia and in the Province of Lecco, on the other hand, there is the tariff system of “linear” divided into distance classes.
The change from one tariff class to the other is 5 km up to 40 km, then click every 10 km.
