“Free circulation” – yearly pass for in-town and out-of-town public transport - A.Y. 2017/2018

Starting from September 1, 2017, if you are regularly enrolled on a PhD programme for the academic year 2017-2018 you can buy the free circulation annual bus pass (public transport within Trento province) at the reduced cost of € 50. This yearly pass can be activated starting from September 1, 2017, and will be valid until August 31, 2018, regardless the date of real activation.

Since it is necessary to have an active enrolment on Esse3 for the new academic year (2017-2018), PhD students will be able to buy the free circulation pass only after renewing the registration by paying the relevant MAV, which will be available following the admission decision to the following year by the Doctoral Committee, which will take place between the end of October and the end of November, according to the specific timings for each programme. In the months of September and October, waiting for the MAV to be available, PhD students who do not hold any previously valid bus pass can either buy a monthly pass (€ 26,50/month for Trento in-town transportation) or charge their smart card with the money they are supposed to need for tickets.

PhD students who, after completion of the legal duration of their programme (end of the third year)  are in the postponement period or waiting for the final examination, can continue to benefit of reduced fees for subscription to the municipal public means of transportation: the reduced fee is the same as for the administrative staff. On the basis of a specific agreement signed by the University and the Trentino Trasporti SpA it is possible to get a discount of the 30% only for a one-year bus pass (bus and trains within the town limits). In order to obtain this kind of pass the PhD student is required to provide Trentino trasporti  ticket offices with a specific certificate, issued by the relevant Doctorate Office.
