How long is the ticket valid?
The ticket is valid from when you receive it. If you have bought a ticket for one zone, it is valid for 90 minutes. If your trip crosses one or more zone boundaries, a change time of 180 minutes applies. You may change as many times as you like during the validity time of the ticket. If the ticket is valid when you board, you can complete your trip even if the ticket becomes invalid before you reach your destination.

Register your cash card
Your cash card must be registered for you to be able to buy single sms tickets. This is because the Finance Supervisory Board with reference to services payment legislation has stipulated that cash cards must be registered for them to be used for the purchase of services. Contact your telecom operator for more information.
It is against the law to forward tickets
It is absolutely forbidden to forward an sms ticket to another mobile phone. This would be forgery, a much more serious offence than travelling without a valid ticket.
