- Historic Centre: unrestricted movement throughout the ZTL area;
- Mainland and Lido island: circulation allowed in the ZTL area of the mainland up to the start of the road bridge leading to Venice and on Venice Lido island; circulation is also allowed for the boarding point of the ferry-boat serving Venice Lido island. It is forbidden to stop along the section that crossed 'Tronchetto'.
The coaches circulating or stopping in the areas not among those of the chosen destination will have to pay a fine plus the difference in cost of the pass.

On duly documented request of the companyproviding the service, discount passes can be issued, applying the corresponding transit unit price for the period and the number of transits into/through the ZTL–Bus area, as provided for by the service plan of the line, for the following categories:

• timetabled non-typical passenger transport services run as per paragraph g) of Resolution 80/2007      ;
• timetabled authorised seasonal coach services (long-distance tourism or commercial) as per para h) of the above mentioned resolution;
• The buses used for international public transport as per para i) of the above mentioned resolution.
