Pay-as-you-go is money that you load onto a Västtrafikkort. You can top up the card at a ticket office. The price of your journey is deducted from the card when you travel. Once the money on the card has run out, you top up the same card again.

Deposit payable when you first buy pay-as-you-go

The first time you buy a card with pay-as-you-go, you pay a deposit of SEK 50. This deposit acts as a safety net for you. If you do not have enough money on your card, it is deducted from the deposit instead. You can have the deposit refunded if you stop travelling using pay-as-you-go.

Journey price

The price depends on the route you travel.
