From Milan city center to Linate

Without sending me links to previous posts, as many of those links are no longer valid, can someone simply tell me what shuttles go from somewhere in Milan downtown area to Linate? I take it the Metro line has not become operational yet. . .

The metro line 4 is a long way off being complete, so your options are the 73 city bus or coach from Centrale station

I would give you the links, but you don't want them ... :-)

As there is no Metro or train at Linate Airport, to get to Linate Airport there are buses from Milano Centrale Railway Station, and also from Piazza Armando Diaz which is just a little south of Piazza del Duomo at the heart of Milan.

Since you prefer not to look at previous posts, but would prefer someone to give the information to you, I have gone to those previous posts and duplicated/copied (why write something anew) the relevant information here so there's less effort for you... I have also gone to the trouble of checking that all the resource links are currently valid and do not need to be amended, so that addresses one of your voiced concerns and makes less work for you too.

Here are all the public transport options for Linate Airport (train services by railway or Metro are not available at Linate Airport):

- Two bus/coach routes to Linate Airport from Milano CentraleRailway Station (northwest of the city center):

--- "Air Bus" by ATM, the Milan municipal transport authority, 25 minute ride depending on traffic, via Dateo Station, over 30 services per day, 5 euros [ atm.it/en/…airbus.aspx ].

--- Autostradale/Starfly bus/coach, 25 minute ride depending on traffic, via Lambrate Station, over 20 services per day, 5 euros [ www.autostradale.it/OrariFermate.aspx?cat=AER ].

Bus stops at Milan Central Station for these bus services to Linate Airport are on the side of the station that is on the east (right side when looking face-on to the front of the station), which is known as Piazza Luigi di Savoia. Make sure you don't take the buses heading for Bergamo Airport (BGY - official name Il Caravaggio Airport - also commonly known as Orio al Serio Airport after the location it is situated), as they also depart on the Piazza Luigi di Savoia side. Someone has helpfully marked the location of the stop within Piazza Luigi di Savoia for "AIR BUS to/from Linate Airport" on Google Maps - here it is [ https://goo.gl/maps/TrHZvSFRkLG2 ].

- Public municipal ATM bus to Linate Airport from the Duomo's southern vicinity, a slightly changed location for its terminus now just off Piazza Armando Diaz heading one-way northeast along the small Via Maurizio Gonzaga, Bus 73, around a 45 minute ride depending on traffic, very frequent at around every 10 minutes, just 1.50 euro. (See "find lines" and/or use "journey planner" at [ http://giromilano.atm.it/#/home/en ].)

To help you, here is a Google Map of the terminal bus stop of Bus 73 on Via Maurizio Gonzaga just off Piazza Armando Diaz [ https://goo.gl/maps/q3gLypCfwQk ]. You will see this bus stop has been labelled with the name "Duomo M1 M3", but it's just nearby the Duomo M1 M3 Metro Station, and not actually right at the Metro station entrance.

I copied all the above information from:

- Post #11 in response to a commenter who asked: "Linate airport. Is there any bus service that serves that airport coming from Milan Centre", from a thread just last year [ https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g18784… ]

- A forum thread again from just last year, entitled "Milan Centrale/Linate Airport bus" [ https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g18784… ]

- A forum thread from just earlier this year, entitled "Getting to Milan City Centre from Linate Airport" [ https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g18784… ]

... but of course you should not click on those links as you do not want to have to read previous posts, and prefer someone to write the answers for you here which I have done...

Contributors here are very helpful. Have a great trip.
