What to do?...More......
If you have TIM, Wind, Vodaphone or H3G and a smart phone, now you can buy your ticket via SMS!
BEFORE BOARDING, send an SMS to ATM at this number: 48444. You will receive an SMS with a normal urban ticket validated in that moment (so the seconds are ticking...you have 90 minutes).
"Normal urban" means that the ticket is *not* valid for the metro stops outside of the city limits (that includes the Rho-Pera convention center).
Cost? Ticket: Euro 1,50 + whatever charges your carrier imposes.
How can you use it to ride on the metro, or on the TreNord and "passante" services? Go to one of the ATM ticket vending machines, press "ticket with SMS," input the PNR code (Personal Reservation Number), and print out the ticket. It automatically will have only the time remaining on the ticket.
Want more info in English? Too bad. I only found it in Italian, so you'll just have to trust me. :-)
P.S., about the public transportation strike in Milan, today, it's from 6 P.M. to 10 P.M.
