Buses are the most reliable public transport means in Riccione. Their contribution to the tourist platform of the resort is complemented by taxis, car rental operators and the salutary bike sharing system which, as advised tourists of the Adriatic Riviera already know, has also been implemented in the neighboring Rimini. In addition to all that, exploring Riccione on foot is not a bad idea at all.
The public transport system of Riccione is so reliable, that exploring the resort with one’s personal vehicle might seem a little redundant. The main bus operator in Riccione is TRAM Rimini (with its Agenzia Mobilita Rimini and TRAM Servizi), the company dedicated to servicing the tourist platform of the entire province of Rimini, Riccione included (since Riccione is, indeed, part of the said province).
Blue Line, a special tourist service by design, is made available by TRAM Rimini in order to provide visitors with the opportunity to explore the Adriatic Riviera by night and to hop from one disco to another without resorting to more expensive means of transport. The service consists, actually, of several lines, the blue one being just the line dedicated to making connections with sundry tourist hotspots in Rimini. Furthermore, tourists accommodated in Riccione can just as well resort to the Yellow Line, to the Green Line and to the Pink Line in order to search out other places on the Adriatic Riviera (Misano, Cattolica, Gabicce).

Tourists who care, above all, about being efficient while exploring a new vacation destination should always take taxis into consideration. Taxis in Riccione are excellent both for searching out the resort and its surroundings and for airport transfer purposes. The main taxi company in Riccione which provides travel services in and around the resort is Taxi Riccione.

Driving around in Riccione is possible by means of the several car rental companies which operate in this resort, though the highest concentration of car rental solutions is to be spotted outside Riccione proper, more precisely, at Federico Fellini Airport. However, Riccione features a fine parking infrastructure, with plenty of car parks in and around the resort. These car parks practice a highly flexible price policy, clients being able to pay for, let’s say, a day or a full month or even for an entire season, depending on their needs. In most cases, car parks are fitted with parking meters and are supervised by attendants.
Riccione too encourages tourists and locals alike to use environment friendly means of transport, which is why the commune of Riccione has implemented a bike sharing system which allows locals and visitors alike to ride around in Riccione.
The bike stands provided by the bike sharing system are located in Piazza Ceccarini (nearby the tourist information office), in Piazzale Luigi Cadorna (nearby the train station), in Piazza Matteotti, Piazza San Martino, on Via Dante, Via Sicillia and Via San Lorenzo.
There are, of course, several requirements users must comply with, such as to pay a € 10 worth of guarantee (deposit), to undertake not to use the bike more than 5 hours a day and not to use it outside the commune of Riccione as such. As expected, people willing to try the bike sharing system of Riccione must be over 18.
For the complete regulation one must learn in order to be able to resort to the bike sharing system of Riccione, as well as for subscriptions (permits), tourists are advised to visit the information office located in Palazzo del Turismo, in Piazzale Ceccarini.
Finally, in Riccione cycling is more than a manner of getting around. It has the prestige of a highly popular sport and, in fact, it has become a tourist branch in its own right. Bike tourism is one rewarding manner of discovering the Adriatic Riviera, Riccione included, as well as the landlocked area of the Emilia Romagna region.
Exploring a new destination on foot always increases the chances of stumbling upon hidden tourist sites the mainstream transport means often overlook. The mere walking offers visitors the enhanced opportunity of getting a more intuitive grasp of the specificity of a certain destination. This holds true with respect to Riccione too. The historic center and the beach area, for instance, can be better searched out and discovered to the full extent of their tourist richness, should visitors decide to take a mere walk.
