Italy's €60 public transport ‘bonus’ is available again from Monday, but with some changes. Here’s who can claim the discount this year.


A discount on the cost of a bus, metro or train pass is available from Monday, April 17th, under Italy's relaunched transport bonus (bonus trasporti).

This year’s discount comes in the form of a one-off 60-euro voucher to be used towards the purchase of a monthly or annual transport pass - unlike the 2022 version, which could be claimed on a monthly basis.

But who exactly will be able to claim the discount in 2023?


While last year’s bonus was available to anyone with a personal income of up to 35,000 euros a year, this year’s discount will only be available to people earning 20,000 euros a year or less.

Eligibility for the bonus is exclusively dependent upon personal income and not household income (which is calculated as an ISEE number).

So, for the sake of argument, while a student might belong to a family whose annual ISEE is over 20,000 euros, they will still be able to claim the bonus so long as their personal income doesn’t exceed that figure.

Apart from that, the claiming process will largely be the same as last year. 

You’ll need to apply on the official website using your SPID or CIE (Electronic ID Card) credentials and codice fiscale (tax code), and select the relevant transport operator.

You’ll also be asked to declare via an auto-certificazione (self-certification form) that your annual income is equal to or lower than 20,000 euros a year.

After that, you’ll receive an electronic voucher which can be used when purchasing their transport pass. 

Vouchers will be valid for the purchase of monthly or annual passes, but can only be used once.

The discount is expected to remain available until December 31st, 2023.
