How to know when to validate the T-Casual ticket?

Page Content

Q: If when using the T-Casual ticket and I use the metro and then maybe more than 1 bus, does the 75 Minutes end at the start of the last journey when validating the ticket or at the end of the journey, and if at the end, how does it know when I get off the bus? I hope this makes sense?

A: The Zone 1 T-Casual ticket 75 Minutes journey time begins the moment you use the card at the first journey. It is your responsibility to ensure that the card is revalidated if your journey takes more than 75 Minutes. For example, if you are on the train from the airport and then catch the metro and then you catch a bus and during the bus journey your 75 Minutes is used up then you need to re-enter your card into the validation machine on the bus. It will then start using up another journey to cover the remaining time. It is the passenger's responsibility to ensure that they are travelling with a validated travel ticket at all times. If you do not revalidate your card and the 75 Minutes time is exceeded, then you could be subject to a fine if an inspector does a spot check on your card.

I recommend you read our page on T-Casual frequently asked questions because we have many more other questions answered on this card that will help you understand how to make the most of it.
