Remember to buy a ticket before boarding. It's cheaper for you and helps us keep our schedules.
Download the RuterBillett app and buy tickets on your mobile. This is the easiest way to buy tickets. You can buy all our tickets with the app, except from the Rufus ticket.
For iPhone or Android:
The travel card is a plastic card you top up with tickets or pay-as-you-go credit, and which you validate using a card reader when you travel. You may order travel cards online, or you may buy them at staffed sales outlets. A new travelcard costs NOK 50. Take good care of your card! It can be reused.
You can top up your card in ticket machines and kiosks, or at our customer service centre or service points. You cannot top up your card here at ruter.no.
If you have a travelcard, you can buy all Ruter's tickets (except from the Rufus-ticket and 365-day ticket) and top up your pay-as-you-go credit by using a ticket machine. If you don't have a travelcard, you can buy a single ticket and a 24-hour ticket on the disposable Impuls card at the same ticket machines.
You will find ticket machines at Metro stations, the larger bus and tram interchanges, and in train stations.
Kiosks and Service Points
You can buy all our tickets and obtain a travelcard at the following sales outlets:
- The kiosks Narvesen, 7-Eleven, Deli De Luca and Mix, as well as some selected shops.

Buses and ferries
If you are unable to buy a ticket before travelling, you may buy single tickets on board buses and ferries. You must pay with cash, and we accept no denominations larger than 200 kroner.
Trams and Metro
It is not possible to buy tickets on trams and metro carriages. You must either buy a ticket beforehand or pay with pay-as-you-go credit on board without a surcharge. It is not possible to activate the ticket on board the metro. This must be done at the station.
