The FS Italiane Group has launched a series of initiatives to ensure effective, widespread, convenient and sustainable railway service even during Milan Linate airport's three months closure.
There are a total of 104 connections with Trenitalia Freccia trains from the main stations in Milan (Centrale, Porta Garibaldi, Rogoredo) and Rome (Termini and Tiburtina). In Milan Rogoredo, in particular, 14 more Frecciarossa stops have been added, increasing the total from 36 to 50. Eight Frecce have been stopping at the station since 9 June, while another six have been stopping in Rogoredo since 28 July. While Milan Linate airport is closed, around 100,000 air passengers are expected to change their habits and choose to travel with Trenitalia.
Details of the expansion of services in Milan Rogoredo were presented today by the CEO of FS Italiane Gianfranco Battisti. Matteo Salvini, Vice President of the Council and Minister of the Interior, Danilo Toninelli, Minister of Infrastructures and Transport, Stefano Bolognini, Councillor for Social Policies, Housing and Disability of the Lombardy Region and Anna Scavuzzo, Vice Mayor and Councillor for Security of the Municipality of Milan were present.
Customer care services are increasing. The Freccia Room and the Trenitalia ticket office are open from 6am to 9.30pm, with extended hours. New self-service ticket machines are available at the station, and a mobile desk with customer service staff will be running during peak hours.
The Metropark (FS Italiane Group) car park in via Cassinis, adjacent to the station, has been completely renovated. The area is equipped with 189 parking spaces, can accommodate new sustainable mobility services and is accessible to all rail passengers. There are four parking spaces reserved for people with reduced mobility, located in front of the entrance to the station, for unobstructed access.
