Mobile with the RuterBillett app

Tickets on your mobile phone

The RuterBillett app gives you access to tickets when and where you need them. You can buy single tickets, 24-hour tickets, 7- and 30-day tickets, and supplementary tickets for additional zones. Read more about RuterBillett and download the app here.




Tickets on your travelcard

Your travelcard is a plastic card on which you can carry and add tickets or pay-as-you-go credit. If you have a subscription to a 30-day ticket or pay-as-you-go credit, you will always have a ticket ready on your travelcard. Order a travelcard at our webshop (only in Norwegian). Your travelcard will be sent to you in the post.


Sales outlets for tickets

Below you will find a list of Ruter's sales outlets where you can get a travelcard and buy tickets.

Ticket machines

If you already have a travelcard, you can buy all Ruter's tickets (except a 365-day ticket) and top up your pay-as-you-go credit simply by using our ticket machines. If you don't have a travelcard, you can buy a single ticket and a 24-hour ticket on the disposable Impuls card. You will find ticket machines at Metro stations, the larger bus and tram interchanges, and in train stations.

Ruter's webshop

At our online webshop, you can order a travelcard containing a 7-day ticket, 30-day ticket, or pay-as-you-go credit. Please note that your travelcard will be sent to you in the post. Visit our webshop (only in Norwegian).

On board buses and ferries

We recommend that you buy your ticket before you get on board. However, you can buy a single ticket from the driver (on buses) or ticketing personnel (on ferries). We will accept cash, but only NOK 200 notes or smaller. Remember that it's more expensive to buy a ticket on board. Please note that it will not be possible to buy tickets on board trams from 31 January.

If you are travelling by Metro or tram, you must buy a ticket in advance.

You can also pay on board using pay-as-you-go credit. In this way you will avoid the onboard surcharge. Note: There are own rules for buying tickets with pay-as-you-go credit on NSB's trains.
