Using a single-charge card
Show the card to a card reader on buses, trams, trains and at Metro stations. As the area of validity is registered on the card at the moment of purchase, you only need to show the card to the reader without pressing any of the buttons. If your ticket is valid, the card reader emits an audible and a green light appears.
You can check the expiry time of the ticket at a card reader by holding the card in the reading area.
