Single ticket

The single ticket is ideal for those who only use public transport occasionally and do not require a travelcard.

Single ticket

A single ticket entitles you to travel as often as you wish within the selected zones and validity period of your ticket. The individual journeys can be interrupted and continued at any time within the validity period. 

Further information

Single tickets are available for 1st and 2nd class. The period of validity varies according to the number of zones purchased: from 8 zones, the single ticket is valid for the whole of Ticino and the Moesano region. 

For transport services where no 1st class is available, the ticket is also valid for 2nd class (without claiming a refund). To use 1st class with a 2nd class ticket, you must hold a class upgrade. Both tickets must be shown at ticket checks.

Multiple-journey ticket

The multiple-journey ticket is suitable for all those who want to make several journeys within the zones purchased. The journeys can be interrupted and continued at any time. This is the right choice for saving money: 6 journeys for the price of 5. 

Further information

  • The ticket must be validated at the relevant machines before starting the journey. Validation of the multiple-journey tickets loaded onto the Ape Card is carried out with the issuing of a separate ticket, which must be shown at any ticket checks.
  • The multiple-journey ticket can be used by several people at the same time. A field has to be validated for each adult.
  • The reduced multiple-journey ticket can also be used by adults. Each person must validate two fields. 
  • The multiple-journey ticket is issued with a validity period of 3 years.
  • Wholly or partly unused multiple-journey tickets can be refunded. You will find further information in the FAQ
