Travel on the ferry boat is free for passengers of the national railway Ferrovie dello Stato. If you travel at night you can remain on board of the train, but the loading manoeuvres are quite noisy. If your journey is during the day, you’d better get off at the station in Villa San Giovanni, from where you can directly reach the pier, or the station in Reggio Lido, which lies 200 m from the dock.
Those travelling by car can purchase the tickets at the ticket office spread along the way to the boarding pier (the first one is the ticket office of Ferrovie dello Stato, followed by Caronte some 500 m onward), while passengers without vehicle pay directly on board.
