The station is also the terminus of the Ferrovie regionali del Lazio FR1 commuter service from Orte. These trains stop at all the stations along the way, including important Roman Stations as Roma Trastevere, Roma Ostiense and Roma Tiburtina. While from last two it is possible to commute to the Linea B subway line, in Roma Trastevere the Tram 8 (with one terminus at Largo di Torre Argentina) provides a fast connection with Trastevere and the heart of the city center.
