Recently, we had an inquiry from a reader who wanted to know if there was a bus from Venice Marco Polo Airport to Treviso, an attractive small city near Venice that's well worth a stay of one or two nights.
The answer is "Yes"--at least for now. ATVO, which operates airport coaches and intercity buses in the Veneto region, introduced a Venice Marco Polo Airport-Treviso bus service in June, 2011. As of this writing, the timetable runs through early December, 2011. With luck, the line will be successful enough to continue operating in 2012.
ATVO's Marco Polo-Treviso coaches run eight times a day in each direction, with a one-way fare of €7. (You can buy a roundtrip ticket for €13; the latter ticket is valid for seven days.)
For more information, including a timetable in PDF format, click here. If our link doesn't work--as it may not after early December--see the ATVO's Bus Service Venice Marco Polo Airport page and look for "Marco Polo Airport - Treviso" on the list of bus timetables.
This new service shouldn't be confused with ATVO's other airport buses, which include:
