Where to validate contactless cards

You can validate your contactless card at the ticket machine by the driver. The machine is marked with the logos of VISA, Mastercard and American Express.


Fares paid with contactless cards and mobile apps cost €1.80 for the occasional day journey and the night (Búhos) fare is €2.10. Passengers can travel as often as they like and pay with their contactless cards without paying an extra fee.

You cannot change route free of charge with the contactless bank card.
