There are two ways to travel on the Trenino Verde: chartered trains or scheduled trains. You can even take your bike on the train (see the bottom of the page for further information).
- Chartered Trains
Preferred by groups, companies or agencies that, being able to count on a certain number of passengers, hire the train and personalize the trip (itinerary, schedule, stops).
You can “put your own train together“, choosing one or more coaches and a steam or diesel locomotive.
The price depends on the trip requested and obviously goes up for a long trip or if historical equipment (steam locomotive and period coaches) is used.
For example, these are the prices for a 75-km trip, VAT included, with various combinations of rolling-stock:
2 diesel rail-cars
Diesel locomotive with 1 coach
Diesel locomotive with 1 period coach
Steam locomotive with 1 coach
Steam locomotive with 1 period coach
- Scheduled Trains
Tourist trains operating at special times of the year: you can travel individually, buying a ticket at the station, at affiliated agencies or on board.

>TRAIN AND BIKE
As part of the “Cycling Programme“, the Province of Cagliari organizes 11 cycling routes within the Province.
