Public Transport

Public Transport

There is a motorway from Trapani city to major destinations in Sicily such as Palermo, Catania and Messina, and a coastal road to Mazara del Vallo in the province. All the other roads are quite small and often pocked, hence care should be taken. Public transport is inexpensive and frequent. To travel by bus or train, it is necessary to purchase a ticket before travelling, then it must be stamped in the machine when boarding on the bus, or at the platform for trains. Tickets are only valid for a definite time after stamping, which is indicated on the ticket itself. You can buy tickets in the stations, newsagents and tobacconists. Hefty fines are imposed if travelling without a ticket.
