Three shuttle companies (Malpensa Shuttle, Terravision and Autostradale) connect Malpensa Airport to central Milan.
All three buses go directly to the Central Station (Milano Centrale) and operate 24 hours a day (every 20 minutes from 5:05 AM to 00:10 AM and less frequent outside this period).
The journey to Milano Centrale takes about 50 minutes.
A one-way ticket costs €8, a return €14. Tickets for all three bus services can be purchased on the bus or at the respective ticket stands in the baggage claim area.
Terravision shuttle tickets can also be purchased online (this is the most comfortable and convenient shuttle service to Milan; getting your tickets online will save you time as you avoid queuing).
The bus stops are located outside of Exit 3 (Uscita 3) and 4 (Uscita 4), in Terminal 2.
While the Express Train is the quickest way to get to central Milan (30-50 minutes, depending on where you need to go), it is cheaper to use shuttle services and more convenient if you are not in a hurry.
