Validating your public transportation card

Validate your journey with the Public Transport Card immediately after entering the public transport vehicle. Validators are located by every door in all the vehicles. When a Public Transport Card is validated, the apparatus checks that the passenger has a valid ticket or the right to discounted travel. If the passenger does not have a ticket but has sufficient funds on their card, they are not permitted to travel – they must purchase a new ticket (QR ticket for example) or exit the vehicle.
