Open ticketing from August 3th


Purchase and use of ticket

With the new public transport system in the Trondheim area from August 3rd, we introduce open ticketing on the green city buses. This means you can board the bus with a valid ticket and find your place without registering the ticket.

You can buy tickets as easily as today, in the app AtB Mobillett, with the travel card t:card, at ticket machines and at retailers.

Pre-purchased ticket from metro station

If you are traveling from a metro stration, you must purchase a ticket before boarding, regardless of whether you are traveling with a metro or city bus. By avoiding onboard purchases, the journey along the metrolines becomes more efficient and predictable for you as a passenger.

If you have an active periodic ticket or buy a single ticket with AtB Mobillett, at a ticket machine or at a retailer, you can board without registering the ticket.

How to travel with the travel card t:card from August 3th

t:card periodic ticket: If you have a brand new periodic ticket, the card must be registered at a metro station or aboard city buses to activate the ticket. If you have an active ticket, you can board without registering the ticket.

t:card auto travel: The card must be registered on board city buses or at a metro station on each journey.

You are solely responsible for carrying a valid ticket. Passengers who fail to produce a valid ticket during an inspection will receive a fine.

Always travel with a valid student certificate

If you are traveling with a student discount, you must always bring a valid student ID. If you do not have a valid student ID during ticket inspection, you will receive an additional fee.

Night bus

Our night buses will largely run the same as today on the August 3rd, but will get new line numbers. Find timetables for the night bus.

Night bus is included in the periodic tickets for students.
