For Ruter’s and NSB’s lines in Oslo and Akershus, the price for the journey is calculated based on how many zones you pass through. Still, you pay for a maximum of 5 zones for each single ticket, and for the period ticket you pay for a maximum of 3 zones - regardless of how far you travel.
Eight zones in Oslo and Akershus
There are eight zones in Oslo and Akershus (1, 2V, 2S, 2Ø, 3S, 3Ø, 4S and 4N) in addition to four border zones (3V, 4V, 4SØ and 4Ø) where Ruter cooperates with neighbouring counties about prices.
Zones and tickets
One or two-zone period tickets are valid for specific zones, while those for three or more zones are not associated with particular zones. This means that when you buy a ticket for one or two zones, it is important to specify the exact travel zone(s). When buying period tickets for three or more zones, you should state which zones you normally travel in, but the ticket may be used in all of Ruter’s zones.
A single ticket is not associated with particular zones – you must specify how many zones you need when buying, but not which zones. The zones you are entitled to travel in are determined when you commence your journey.
In principle, the price for the journey is calculated based on how many zones the journey includes. Still, you pay for a maximum of 5 zones for each single trip, and for the period ticket you pay for a maximum of 3 zones - regardless of how far you travel.
Find the price for your ticket
In order to calculate the price for your ticket, you count the number of zones in which you want to travel (including the zones where you get on and off). Use the fares table to find your ticket and fare.
