Public Transport  Tramways, Subways etc
Milan boasts long experience of public transport: its first street cars date back to 1841, its first subway line to 1964. Today, the wide assortment of trams, buses, trolley-buses and the four lines of the subway makes it easy to get to almost every corner of town. The Fiera Milano City, for instance, is on the red subway line 1 (direction Rho Fiera, Lotto stop).

.:. Tickets ( Euro 1.50 from September 1, 2011) are not on sale on vehicles: you can buy them at most newsstands and in some bars, or from ticket vending machines in subway stations. You can use a ticket for 90 minutes on as many trams and buses as you like, but only once on the subway.
.:.  Tickets to reach some suburban subway stations (Rho and Rho Fiera, Sesto San Giovanni, the two stops for Milanofiori Assago, the three ones in Cologno, and towards Gessate beyond Cascina Gobba) are more expensive.

.:. Special daily (24 hours, Euro 4.50) and two-day tickets (48 hours, Euro 8.25), valid for 24 and 48 hours from the moment they are first validated, are on sale at subway newsstands. Prices of all types of tickets are on the ATM official website.

.:. Public transport information is available from the ATM office in the Duomo subway station (Mon through Sat 7:45am-8:15pm) as well as in other major subway stations, at the phone (02 48607607, every day 7:30am-7:30pm), or at the ATM official website.

Like in London, subway tickets must now be validated when leaving stations.
.:. The new rule is enforced gradually. It does not apply always or everywhere yet.
.:. Keep your ticket at hand anyway, as you are increasingly likely to be stuck in the station, if you can't prove you bought a regular ticket.
 
Taxi  Taxis
Milan's white taxis can be called by phone dialing 02 8585 or 02 4040.
.:. Starting from late August 2015, the 02 7777 centralized toll free phone number has been tested, and it seems to work.
.:. Another option is to go to a taxi rank (a list is here). The wave-down system doesn't work too well, especially when international fairs are in progress and all the towns 5,000 cabs seem to be busy.
