According to the current Regulations from the Health Authorities, some measures have been adopted, in order to minimise contact between passengers and passengers:
  • The interpersonal distance of at least one meter is guaranteed in-vehicles through alternate seating. On the unusable seats the "ban of the use" is indicated by appropriate signs

PURCHASE OF THE TICKETS
 
In order to respect the social distancing and prevent gatherings, customers are kindly requested to prevelege the channels of purchase on line like the website www.atvo.it and the web app www.daaab.it.
As an alternative the purchase at the automatic machines, at the ticket offices of the company and at the authorized agents is also available, always carefully avoiding gatherings. Customers going to the ticket offices are kindly requested to respect the safety social distancing and to follow the measures for the access limit.
 
The sale of tickets in-vehicles is suspended.

In order to allow passengers to safely purchase the tickets, without the need to physically go to the ticket offices, ATVO has activated a completely innovative system for the quick purchase of the tickets.The system allows the traveller to purchase the ticket directly at ATVO bus stops through the app daAaB by simply scanning the appropriate QR Code indicated at the stop.
Travellers going to the bus stop will be able to purchase the tickets directly on their smartphone with 3 simple operations:
 
  • Scanning the QR Code posted at the bus stop
  • Selecting the chosen destination
  • Purchasing the ticket
 
All main ATVO stops will be equipped with special signs showing the QR code related to the stop.
The idea is to extend the quick purchase system at the bus stop to the whole network.
Such a solution aims to protect the travellers in this period of health emergency, but at the same time is a big step forward by the company, which wants to be up with the times and to invest in the technology.
