Ferrovie Emilia Romagna (FER) is a secondary bus and railway company of Emilia-Romagna, northern Italy.


The company was formed in 1997 by acquisition by the Emilia-Romagna region of four previous state-owned railway companies:

  • the Ferrovie Padane (FP, which managed the Ferrara–Codigoro railway);
  • the Ferrovia Suzzara–Ferrara SpA (FSF);
  • the Gestione Commissariale Governativa delle Ferrovie Venete - Ferrovia Bologna-Portomaggiore (FBP);
  • the Gestione Commissariale Governativa delle Ferrovie Venete - Ferrovia Parma-Suzzara (FPS).
  • On 1 January 2008, it also acquired the railway branch of the ATCM of Modena, and, on 1 February 2009, Reggio Emilia's ACT, as well as FBV, becoming the only railway company in Emilia-Romagna.

    Emilia-Romagna currently owns 59.44% of FER, the rest belonging to the provinces of Bologna, Mantua, Ferrara, Modena, Parma, Ravenna, Reggio Emilia and Rimini.
