The first step is to take the Treviso Airlink bus services which leave from outside the airport. There should be 2 buses every hour and you can check the timetables here on their website.
Again, with this service, you can purchase the ticket from inside the airport or by using the MOMUP mobile app which is usually the most convenient for us.
The ticket cost is just 4 Euros and the bus leaves from Via Noalese which is literally 95 meters away (a 2-min walk) just turn right on the exit from the airport.
