A single ticket is valid for one trip .
- If you travel within one zone the ticket is valid for a return trip in the same zone.
- If you travel from one zone to another zone you cannot make a return trip on the same ticket. In this case, the ticket is only valid for a one way trip for the distance you have chosen.
If the validity period expires due to delays in correspondences, the bus driver will manually approve the ticket (based on distance and time).

Period ticket zone (30 days, 7 days or 24 hours)
Period ticket zone is a distance-based period ticket that is valid for unlimited travel in the period the ticket has been purchased for, within the zones that the ticket covers. You can purchase a zone-based period ticket for 30 days, 7 days or 24 hours and the ticket is available for adults, children and persons eligible for a concessionary ticket.
When purchasing a zone-based period ticket you select the stop you want to travel from and the stop you want to travel to, and the system will calculate the ticket price for you. The ticket is valid for trips between the zone that the “from” stop is located in and the zone that the “to” stop is located in. You can travel to and from other stops than the ones you selected during your purchase as long as the stops are located within the zones you have bought a ticket for.
