Where can I find the timetable of all journeys from/to a specific municipality?
On the page Timetable/Search for Municipality, you can access a PDF file containing all the information you need by entering the name of the Municipality and clicking on SEARCH.

Where can I find the timetable from an A to a B location?
On the page Timetable/Direct connections you can enter a departing location and an arriving location, then you click on SEARCH and the system will show you the timetable. In case there are more departing/arriving stations for the selected destination, the system will show you all of them: click on “+” next to the most convenient station and you will get the details of the schedule.

The system does not recognise what I write when searching for a journey. Why?
The system has an auto-completion feature to let you save time and prevent typing errors: for example, if you are searching for “Terme di Viterbo”, just type “Vit” and the system will automatically open a list of all locations containing those letters. Then, click on ‘Terme di Viterbo,“, that’s it.

Where can I buy the tickets?
Cotral tickets and passes can be purchased at tour ticket offices and authorised sales points (newsagents, tobacco shops, etc.). Here you can find the closest to you.

Can I take my dog on the bus?

Guide dogs wearing muzzles for blind people can travel for free on our buses. If you have a medium and small-sized dog, or a cat, you can take it on board by purchasing an extra ticket and making sure it does not disturb or annoy other passengers. For further information, please check our General Transport Conditions.

We are a large group of people: how can we inform Cotral we are travelling on buses?

We are a public transport company: we do not rent buses, provide customised journeys or book seats. However, if you are planning to go on a trip with friends or with your Scout group, we will be happy to help you. Fill out this form at least 7 working days before your journey, indicating: exact days and times of the journeys, departure and arrival stops, and the presence of any luggage or any passengers with disabilities. Moreover, leave us your mobile number.
