Make it a habit of always showing your Västtrafik card to the card reader on board. By doing so you make sure that your ticket has been activated. You also keep control over your card balance.
When travelling by train, show the ticket to the train host.
Remember to activate the card
It's easy to miss activating the ticket unless you have the habit of showing it on board every time. The ticket is considered invalid if it is not activated, which means that you will have to pay a surcharge at a ticket inspection.
Show the ticket
On most bus lines, you must board through the front door. When boarding, you must show your ticket to the ticket reader. There is information on all buses where you should go on there. If you have a pram, wheelchair or walker, use the rear doors on the bus (marked with an orange frame) and show the ticket to the nearest ticket reader.
