Wind offers free Florence public transport for Pope visit

Monday 9 November 2015 | 15:23 CET | News
Italian operator Wind will give all its mobile customers the opportunity to use Florence's public transport for free on 10 November to mark the visit of Pope Francis. To access the promotion, dubbed Wind Ticket Day, customers simply need to request a ticket via SMS or via the MyWind or Wind Talk apps. Tickets for up to ten trips by bus and tram will be free all day, with customers only having to pay the cost of the SMS (EUR 0.124). The MyTicket service allows Wind users to acquire public transport tickets using their smartphone credit, with no need for prior registration or credit cards.
