  • Express buses: With a 30- or 180-day season ticket, you can, with some exceptions, use it for trips on express buses in Vestland, as long as you have a ticket for the zone or zones you are traveling in. More information about using Skyss tickets on express buses can be found here.
  • Osterøy Ferry: If you have a 7-, 30-, or 180-day season ticket for zone A, you can use it for bus trips on the Osterøy ferry. Note that if you travel with a single ticket or a 24-hour ticket on the bus, you must buy a single ticket for the ferry from the ferry crew.

If you have a Skysskort period ticket and are traveling by train, express bus or Osterøy Ferry, you must show both the Skysskort and receipt.



Validity and price zones

  • A season ticket is valid for 7, 30, or 180 days, starting and ending at the same time of purchase.
  • During the validity period, you can travel as much as you want within the price zone for which you have purchased the ticket. It is possible to purchase tickets for multiple price zones.
  • The ticket's cost increases based on the number of price zones you plan to travel through, with a maximum of four zones.
  • You can use the ticket as long as you board a scheduled mode of transportation while the ticket is valid.

Who the ticket applies to

  • You can get a season ticket for adults, children, seniors, and students.
  • The ticket is non-personal and can be used by others, but it can only be used by one person at a time. Remember that the person using the season ticket must always meet age and discount requirements. For example, as an adult, you cannot travel with a season ticket intended for children.
  • To lend tickets purchased through the Skyss ticket app, you must physically lend your phone. To lend a ticket on your Skysskort, you must lend the Skysskort.

Important information for season ticket travel

  • If you are traveling in Hordaland, you do not need to present the ticket when boarding. Be aware that the driver, crew, or inspector may still request to see a valid ticket at any time during the journey.
  • If you are traveling in Sogn og Fjordane and have purchased a ticket in advance, show your ticket to the driver or crew when boarding.
