Flexible or set start date?
Most period cards have a flexible start, meaning that they are activated the first time they are held against a card reader. Some have a set start date. This means that you choose the date you want the card to be valid from when you buy the card. For more information about this, go to the page for the relevant type of period card.
You must start to use your period card within 180 days of purchase. We do not refund 30-day period cards, but you can exchange one if you have not already started using it.
You must be able to show a valid period card, even if there is no card reader on board
When using on-demand services or travelling with one of our partners, you will not always find a card reader on board. You must nevertheless be able to show that you have a valid ticket, so make sure you keep a card check together with your card. If your period is not activated, you can ask for a card check on any Västtrafik vehicle or in our Västtrafik shops. If the period is activated, you can ask for a card check at any of our points of sale.
