E-ticket validators

  1. Passengers holding the SKA/SKR card with active and topped up e-wallet can pay for public transport tickets using electronic validators.
  2. The system of validating the e-ticket with the use of e-wallet is based on payments of the enter-exit type.
  3. At the entry to the vehicle an advance payment for the journey to the end of the route is charged and at the exit a final settlement is made and a possible refund of overpayment is made.

The validators allow for coding periodical tickets and e-wallet top-ups purchased via the Internet on the SKA card.

Detailed information on the validation process can be found in the SKA Terms of Use.
