Value tickets

Value tickets are a good option for occasional users of public transport. You can load value on your Travel Card from 5 to 400 euros (in full euros).

Value tickets are purchased with value loaded on the Travel Card from card readers on buses, trams and trains. If you travel on the Metro, you need to pay your fare before entering the platform area. Press the card reader button corresponding to the desired fare zone. On trams, you can also buy a tram ticket at the card reader.

A more expensive night fare is charged Monday to Sunday between 2am and 4.30am. The price of a night time value ticket is the same for all customer groups. Card readers charge the night fare automatically according to the time of day.
