72 hour Venice Connected Pass

So, I bought this pass and put a start date of June 16. But I was planning on taking the Number 5 bus for 3 Euros and activating the pass on the 17th at the Train Station. Does the fact that my confirmation shows a "delivery date" of June 16 mean that my 72 hours will start running on June 16 even if I don't activate the pass with my PRN until June 17th? Thanks!

Valerie:
At this point you have PRN in hand. You have to turn that in at a "Hello Venezia" kiosk to get your pass. I don't see why you can't do that on the 17th, but read the material they sent you carefully to be sure. The fee that I am aware of is 6.50 euros for a single ride, 60 minutes. Where did you come up with 3 euros? I think the 3 euro price is only for a very limited one-stop transfer on the #1, but I could be wrong....

Laurel, From my research the AVTO fly bus is 3 euros one way. Am I misreading that? As to the fine print on the Veniceconnected website: it does not address this issue and I did not find an instant answer when I googled it. I am hoping one of you might have specific experience with this. We are in Venice for 4 day and I wanted to save the pass for days 2, 3 and 4. Thanks!

Sorry, my error on the ATVO bus. I am not familiar with it. My concern on your VC Pass is that the fees change on June 17: June 16 is "low" season and the 17th is "middle/high." Your pass would cost 3.30 euros more if you had clicked on the 17th as your first day. However, you will receive, in exchange for your PNR, an electronic pass called an iMob. You have to wave it in front of a reader at the vaporetto stop to activate it and also to validate your entry each time you hop on. So your first use/first day should be counted from the first minute you actually use the pass. If you activate it at 08:00 on the 17th, it will expire at 07:59 on the 20th, for example.
