What is the difference between a personal and a multi-user Waltti Travel Card?
Only the person registered as the cardholder can use a personal Waltti Travel Card; the personal information of the owner is recorded on the card. This makes it possible to transfer the ticket product on the card to a new card, and to cancel the old card if the card is lost.
Anybody can buy a multi-user Waltti Travel Card, and it is suitable for shared use between family members or companies. The only information stored on the card is the age group: adult or child. Multi-user cards must be bought from the Oulu10 Service Point. You cannot cancel the card or transfer the ticket product to another card if the card is lost.
The Waltti Travel Card may have a season already loaded when you top up the card. The new season starts only after the previous one is over and you validate the card on the bus. If you have a non-activated season ticket on your Waltti Travel Card, you must activate it on the bus before purchasing a new one.
Changes in the Waltti Travel Card’s age group are updated automatically.
