The season ticket is suited for regular travel
• With a season ticket, you can travel as much as you want during the validity of the ticket and in the validity zone. Season tickets are sold for 30 and 90 days. Read more about zones.
• In addition to the season ticket, you may also have a valid value ticket on your Waltti travel card. If you travel on a zone where your season ticket is not valid, you can pay for the trip by asking the driver to charge the trip on the value ticket.
• You can have two periods of validity simultaneously on your Waltti travel card: the current period and the following one.
• Season tickets are always personal, be prepared to prove your identity at the time of purchase.
Travelling with a value ticket is always a cheaper option than single tickets
• The Waltti card is loaded with value, i.e. money, and it is charged according to the number of zones you travel in.
• With a value ticket, you always pay less than with cash or mobile ticket, and no night-time fees are charged.
• When you purchase your Waltti travel card, a default zone of validity will always be set for the card. If the trip differs from the default zone, give the card to the driver and tell where you are going, and the driver will charge the card for the right amount.
• Value cannot be loaded on Kela school travel tickets, nor on tickets for comprehensive school students.
• The Waltti travel card may have a valid season ticket in addition to the value ticket, and the season ticket will always be the primary payment method. If you want to use the value ticket feature, ask the driver to charge the price for the trip from the value ticket.
• You can buy the value ticket either as a multi-user ticket or as a personal ticket (be prepared to prove your identity at the time of purchase).
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.
Purchase additional value or seasons for your Waltti travel card
The Waltti travel card may have a value or 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 must always be made in Oulu10 Service Point.
