A ticket within the metropolitan area costs very little. It is valid for 75 minutes and for only one underground trip. Books of 10 tickets are also available. Newspaper stands in underground stations sell Tourist tickets, which are valid for from 24 to 48 hours.

Buying a season ticket discounts the price of individual tickets (and gives discounts at participating shops, language courses and some shows). There are several types of season tickets for the elderly, students, the disabled and pensioners, in addition to ordinary annual season tickets. Weekly, monthly and season tickets must be kept in the personalised holder.

Ticket validation

Tickets must be validated before the start of a journey, using the validation machines. They are at the entry gates of the metro stations, within the entrance area of all rail stations and at the rear of buses and trams. During the journey, a ticket inspector may ask to see the ticket: a passenger without one may be fined.
