Municipal transport – Tramways and Buses

Time tickets (tickets valid for a certain period of time, e.g.: 15 min.) are the applied payment form for tramway and bus rides. This allows passengers to change a line without any need to punch a new ticket (unless they have exceeded the permitted ride time). The ride start time is printed on the ticket by the ticket puncher. Tickets for 15, 30 and 60 minutes are available at sales and tickets machines. There are also single-ride tickets and short-term tickets (24h, 7 days).
