Experimental system to tackle fare evasion on Rome buses.
Rome has introduced turnstiles on the number 669 bus serving the city's southern suburbs as part of an experimental system to combat widespread fare evasion.
The turnstiles, introduced on 11 June, requires ticket-holding commuters to enter by the front door only, and exiting via the middle or back doors.
The alarmed barriers, similar to turnstiles on Rome's metro network, open once tickets or bus passes are scanned.
The city's public transport company ATAC says it will monitor the system and if successful will introduce it on other bus lines.
