Day ticket for individuals

More information

Tip: 2 schoolchildren below the age of 15 may travel with a person using a normally priced day ticket for individuals.

If you are travelling by bus & train and you are returning the same day, we recommend you use day tickets. They are usually cheaper than buying multiple single tickets.

After being punched, day tickets allow you to travel as much as you want, up to 4am the next day.

Schoolchildren aged below 15 and people aged 60+ may use reduced day tickets.

2 schoolchildren below the age of 15 may travel with a person using a normally priced day ticket. Another schoolchild below the age of 15 may also travel instead of the adult individual.

Cycles or dogs may not take the place of people.

Options for combining with other tickets

Do you often travel by bus and rail? If so, you know the situation: You have your ticket for your usual journey in your wallet. It is often a monthly pass (or JobTicket) that you use to commute to work. Or, if you are a cyclist, it is a weekly pass or day ticket that you use when the weather report looks grim.

How can you use these tickets if you occasionally want to travel to some other destination in a different tariff Zone? In the VVO area you can easily combine multiple tickets?

The table below shows all the options:

About combinations with single tickets or 4-ride tickets

Single tickets or a strip from a 4-ride ticket are valid for an hour longer if they are stamped in the tariff zone for which you already have a day ticket or a pass. If you are travelling on local trains, you should stamp all the tickets you need for your journey before getting on any train at the platform. If there is a ticket inspection, please show all your tickets in order to avoid any misunderstanding.
