I am travelling with a group of friends through Italy in August. One of our planned routes is between the cities of Taranto and Pompei on August 15th.
As I checked the timetables on Interrail website for updates recently, it seems there is a disruption on the route.
We will have to take a train from Taranto to Potenza, then change there to a bus in direction do Salerno and then take a suburban train from Salerno to Pompei. See the screenshot below.
The train/bus codes are: RE 34396, BusPZ446 and SUB21332.
I contacted Trenitalia if the Global Pass applies to the bus and suburban train and they were only able to confirm that it does not apply to the suburban train (we will have to buy a full ticket for that - at least it’s only about 4 EUR).
So I don’t know any details about the bus: is it a rail replacement bus, or a normal long distance bus? Will we have to make a seat reservation?
Has anyone encountered a similar issue? I’ll be really glad to hear any advice from you guys!
