Get your bus ticket before getting on board

expired ticket

The very moment before you goe in a Roman Bus, you need a bus ticket.
And I really mean it. That's because you can't rely on the onborad machine selling tickets.

From my last 2 experiences:

exp 1: on bus number 716, I get on without ticket, confident to buy it on board. I did get one. Still I inserted a 2 euro coin, just a second before reading on the box itself :"questa macchina non da resto". (trad: "this machine doesn't give back change").
Result: 2 euro paid for 1,5 value.

Roma, One day trip: Rome to Siena (by bus)

[a software traslated this text... sorry for mistakes. Original italian text here]

The connection from Rome to Siena is one of the most simple and comfortable throughout the transport network departing from the capital.

I did back and forth for two years because of the University and I have always found it very well.

Train would required a change at Chiusi and then take a bus to reach the center of Siena - the bus is to be comfortable and always punctual.
