it will be a special line for workers, pupils, students, old people specially the whom are living in terraferma, which can only be taken by special subscription card owners during crowdy periods (carnival, summer, biennale)to avoid missing trains and other problems of this kind during week working time.

Got it. Is it only the Canal Grande?

It was my understanding that it will run from the Treporti to Tre Archi via Fondamente Nove inbound in the morning, outbound in the evening, for (as it has been said) workers and students. Work days only (feriale).

That's interesting, I hadn't heard. I'll check at the ACTV in the next few days and see what they say. Heaven knows, they could use a break...although there're just as many pendolari on the weekends, and that's when the boats are the fullest (that, and when it rains...)

I went to the ACTV booth at Ca' d'Oro today and asked the attentdent there if he knew anything about the Venetian Line. He paused a moment, shook his head and said, "Look," as he pointed the white hair, "they've been talking about that line every since these were black!"

Doesn't sound promising does it?

Funny! It's interesting how everyone has a different answer to the question ... including some I got via email. It means something, but I'm not sure what.

Hi, it's Catherine. After sending the original question, I found someone in Venice who could translate the article as it appeared in the paper. It seems that the first two rows of seats in each waterbus are to be reserved for the elderly, infirm and pregnant women. Within days I started to notice signs to that effect onboard.
