How Can I reduce transportation costs in Milan?

Anyone know the cost of taking a taxi from Milan Malpensa to Milan City Center near the Cathedral? Any other tips on economical ways to travel around Milan? Is the cost of renting a car for a week better than the cost of trains, buses, taxis for 7 days?

Hi JackDZACK012

welcome to the Milan forum.

We have spent lots of time collecting all the info you are asking :)

Taxis Malpensa to Milan city center: fixed rate 90€

Please read here tripadvisor.com/Travel-g187849-s302/Milan:It…

Moving from/to the airport: tripadvisor.com/Travel-g187849-s301/Milan:It…

The second question: car versus trains depends on where you have to go. Please check the train rate and the car weekly price.

Here there is an article with the public transport rates: tripadvisor.com/Travel-g187849-s303/Milan:It…

(maybe you are interested to 'Io viaggio Ovunque in Lombardia' rate, that can be used on every public transport service throughout the Lombardia region).

You would have to be insane to want to drive in central Milan. The traffic plays by local rules, and parking is very expensive.

To move around Milan you have 2 main ways: public transport and bike sharing, car is totally out of the question unless you need to go out of town, and even in that case I'd recommend trains. Since you will be mainly moving around the centre of town, bike sharing is a very efficient way of moving around and it's quite cheap. Go to www.bikemi.com and check for yourself.
