Actv, acronym for Azienda del Consorzio Trasporti Veneziano, is the public transport company responsible for transportation in the Venetian Lagoon and in the province of Venice. Actv manages the transport of passengers and tourists by waterbus (vaporetto) and ferry in the lagoon and by bus and tram on the mainland. The junction point between the two transport systems is located in Piazzale Roma, at the end of the Ponte della Libertà, which connects the mainland (Mestre) to Venice. WATERBUS ROUTES The Central Lines 1, 2 and 2/ are active throughout the year and run along the Grand Canal. The Line 1 has many stops on both sides of the Grand Canal. The Line 2 is used for the connection with the Giudecca Island and for a faster trip along the Grand Canal, having fewer stops. During the summer season, the Line 2 makes the connection with the Lido Island. The shuttle Line 2/ makes a fast connection between Piazzale Roma and Rialto. The Giracittà Lines provide a transportation service around the entire perimeter of the city, reaching the most strategic points, including Piazza San Marco, Santa Lucia railway station, Piazzale Roma and the islands of Lido, Giudecca and Murano.
