Montecatini Terme to Florence by bus or train?

Hello,

I am going to be in Montecatini Terme on 21th July and I would like to visit Florence. I am going solo, so I thought bus would be a good option but everyone on the forums talk about trains? Can someone give me a suggestion on this?

When I took a bus from Lucca to Florence once, it was delayed by almost half an hour by congestion on the autostrada. This cannot happen with a train.

I based myself in Montecatini as a solo traveller and used the train for all my trips. It was 50 minutes to Florence.

You can get tickets at machine station or from tabacchi. Validate it before boarding.

What train service did you use ? Regional or high speed or better yet, what is the website ? We are also going to Montecatini and Florence.
