Stamp/show your ticket on board

Do you stamp your monthly card or not? Do you hold your app ticket to the card reader? – You’ll find the answers here. 

Västtrafikkort

Get into the habit of always holding your Västtrafikkort to the card reader on board. That way you can check your balance and be sure that your ticket is activated.

When travelling by train, you should show your ticket to the train conductor.

Remember to activate your card
