    Ferrovie Appulo Lucane is a transport company owned by the Italian Ministry of Infrastructures and Transport, which manages the railway lines between Apulia and Basilicata and several bus lines in the same area.



    The history of the Ferrovie Appulo Lucane began in 1915 under the identity of MCL (Società Mediterranea Calabro-Lucane).

    The first line opened was Bari-Matera, 76 kilometers long, inaugurated on August 9, 1915. Between 1920 and 1930, the line was extended to Miglionico and Montalbano Jonico, reaching a length of 142 kilometers. The second line inaugurated, between 1930 and 1934, was Altamura – Avigliano Lucania – Potenza, with its branch Avigliano Lucania – Avigliano City, 8 kilometers long.

    In 1989, the network was split in two, between Ferrovie della Calabria (FC) and the Ferrovie Appulo Lucane (FAL).



    From a touristic point of view, the most important line is Bari – Altamura – Matera. Beside that, there is Altamura – Avigliano Lucania – Potenza and Avigliano Lucania – Avigliano City. The line Bari-Bitritto, 9.2 kilometers in lenght, is under construction.



    There are about 16 departures every day from Bari Centrale to Matera Centrale, between 5.09 am and 10.26 pm. A ticket costs 5€ and the trip takes almost 2 hours. For other routes, check the company’s website.
