The aim of the onboard surcharge is to help make our services more punctual. Cash sales of tickets on board take time. So to save time it is important that as many of our customers as possible pay in advance.
Buses and ferries
If you buy a single ticket on board a bus or ferry, you must pay an onboard surcharge of NOK 22 for adults and NOK 11 for children and seniors. This applies regardless of which zones you are travelling in if you buy an adult ticket. If you are buying a child or senior ticket, the onboard surcharge only applies if you are travelling in or from zone 1.
You can pay on board using pay-as-you-go credit. In this way you will avoid the onboard surcharge.
Trams and Metro
It is not possible to buy tickets on board trams and the Metro.
It also costs you more to buy a ticket on board NSB's trains.
