At stations, there are several vending machines where you can easily exchange your smartphone ticket for a physical public transport ticket.

- Choose 1, 2 or 3 days validity for the public transport card. Validity only starts when you use the card for the first time. Once activated, your ticket is valid for the number of consecutive calendar days you have chosen. A calendar day ends at 04.00 am the following day. Example: if you activate your card at 8.00 am, a 1-day card is valid until the next day at 4.00 am.
- The public transport card is very easy to use. You need to check in and out at each vehicle. So when changing trains, you also have to check out first and then check in again. You do this at the card readers at the stops or in the bus/tram.
