How the ticket works

Single tickets are valid for 90 minutes within one zone, and 30 additional minutes are added to your ticket for each additional zone you pay for. 

Your ticket is valid as long as you board before your ticket expires, but if your journey includes a transfer, you will need to buy an additional ticket if your ticket has expired before your transfer.

When travelling across zones, your ticket price will increase with each additional zone. The maximum for single tickets is four zones.
