Granturismo BUS rules in Firenze
Buspass is the system of rules and facilitations that organise and rationalise the circulation and stops of Granturismo Buses. Bus circulation within the ZTL is conditioned by the payment of an amount of money that allows the release of a display label that must always be perfectly legible and always displayed.
The partecipation to Danzainfiera allows for a special rate fee with "R display label".
The request must be made to the Turistic Bus Office, by fax at the number 055.4040261 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org, by each renting company and/or association, written on headed paper (containing complete personal details to register the payment receipt, phone and tax numbers, email addresses, fiscal code and/or VAT number). The request must contain: - declaration validating the fact that the group is participating to the Danzainfiera event - date of visit - meeting and assembly point - number plate of vehicle that will do the transport service - front/back, readable copy of the vehicle registration certificate (as attachment).
An expiry date is expected for the submittal of the requests to the competent office (usually a week before the event). After that date the associations will no longer have the reductions available. The expiry date will soon be published in this section.
We remind you that R display labels will not be released directly at the desk, without a suitable request presented at the competent office beforehand.
A confirming document will be sent by the same office with the price indication that will have to be paid upon arrival,and that will have to be presented to Sas desk points in Firenze, appointed to the release of the display labels ( everyday 7:30 a.m -7:30 p.m).
