The journeys with the shortest connections win Bologna, are quicker than taking the daily direct Frecce train operated by Trenitalia and much faster than the IC trains.

It also provides a direct option for travelling from Rome to Rimini in the mornings.

When looking up a Rome to Rimini journey, you will see numerous journeys listed with 1 change of train
These all involve taking a high speed Frecce train from Roma to Bologna - and then at Bologna Centrale station, you can connect into a Frecce, Intercity or Regionale train on to Rimini.
Take care to check the details of the connection carefully if you do opt to travel via Bologna; Bologna Centrale is an enormous station, so you should allow a minimum of 10 mins to change trains there, particularly if you want or need to use the elevators.
So for a stress-free connection, we recommend allowing a minimum of 25 mins to change trains in Bologna, 10 mins to make the transfer + 15 mins contingency, in case the train from Rome arrives late.
Though most of the connections will involve taking a Regionale train on from Bologna to Riminiand because seats can't be reserved on these trains, it won't matter which of this type of train service you take on to Rimini.
Though when booking journey options which involve taking a combination of Frecce + Regionale trains, you won't then be able to take an Intercity or Frecce train on from Bologna.
