Prepaid card

One card, 10 tickets

Do you travel on the tl network occasionally? The prepaid card is a solution for purchasing your tickets that is...

  • SIMPLE: get the right ticket in one easy step
  • FAST: enjoy direct access to tl vehicles
  • TRANSFERABLE: you can pass on tickets to friends and family
  • GOOD VALUE: take advantage of a discount in relation to the price of individual tickets

The prepaid card, which is similar to the former books of tickets, contains 10 tickets to print. Thanks to the prepaid card, you no longer need to go to the ticket machine, and no longer need to look for change!
