Travel ticket for Florence's transport system
A transport one-way ticket in Florence lasts 90 minutes since you first validate it. Once you get on a bus, you need to put your ticket into one of the ticket validating machines. From that moment your card lasts up to 90 minutes, so you can get on and off other buses during this time with the same ticket. It costs €1.20.
