Most railway stations in Italy are maintained and operated by RFI, a subsidiary of Ferrovie dello Stato Group. A minor part of them are operated by private and regional companies, conceded by the state.[1][2]

Classification[edit]

RFI classifies stations into Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze categories.[3]

Platinum[edit]

Major stations with over 6,000 passengers per day. As major interchanges they will have many departures and arrivals daily, and will be served by high speed/long distance services. They are the principal stations for the Italian cities they serve. They have the highest commercial potential (both fares and revenue from on-site merchants). 16 stations are classified as platinum:[4]

Gold[edit]

Gold stations have high traffic levels. These include major urban inter-changes and stations serving large towns. They have a lower commercial potential.

Silver[edit]

This class includes all other small to medium sized stations served by metropolitan and regional services. Some of these may be served by long distance services.

Bronze[edit]

Small stations with low passenger numbers. This includes minor stations served by regional services.
