The FL lines, formerly Lazio regional railways (Italian: ferrovie regionali del Lazio) consist of 8 commuter rail lines operated by Trenitalia, converging on the city of Rome.

The lines FL1, FL2 and FL3, particularly in areas closer to Rome, function like a rapid transit service, integrated with underground and surface transportation. The other lines (numbered from FL4 to FL8) are served by traditional regional trains, and used almost exclusively for commuter traffic.

All eight lines are considered regional trains by Trenitalia. On timetables and departure boards at the stations the trains are marked with the letter R (Regional). The numbering of the lines (FL1, FL2, ...) appears only in some informational materials and on the signs of some stations. However, in the ATAC network, the numbering appears in all network maps.

Rates[edit]

For travel between stations in the City of Rome, ticketing is integrated with the Metrebus Rome system. A passenger may use the integrated ticket "BIT" from 1,50 € (valid for 100 minutes) or any other type of integrated ticket or Metrebus pass; in addition, Trenitalia sells special "Anello" tickets where one may travel on any Trenitalia train within the City of Rome with a single 0.90 € ticket (valid for 90 minutes). The "Anello" and the Metrebus Rome tickets are only valid within an imaginary ring encircling Rome, bounded by the stations: Capannelle (FL4 and FL6), Cesano di Roma (FL3), Fiera di Roma (FL1), Lunghezza (FL2), Roma Aurelia (FL5), Settebagni (FL1) and Torricola (FL7 and FL8).

For all trips that take place outside the "Anello" ring, or that cross through the ring, the typical regional mileage rate applies.
