Zones outside Oslo and Akershus

In some places, Ruter's services extend outside the Oslo and Akershus region into other counties.

3V and 4V in Røyken and Hurum in Buskerud

In zones 3V and 4V, Ruter's tickets and fares apply on Ruter's bus services 251–254, and on the NSB train service to Spikkestad.

In these zones, the public transport provider in Buskerud (Brakar) runs the bus services 71 and 81–86. If you have bought a single ticket on board a Brakar service, this entitles you to transfer to a Ruter service, and vice versa. A period ticket bought from either Brakar or Ruter is also valid on all services in the area. If you have a period ticket on your travelcard, you must be able to produce the receipt you get when you activate your ticket. This is because Ruter's ticket machines are unable to activate or read Brakar's tickets, and vice versa.

4SØ and 4Ø in Rømskog and Trøgstad in Østfold

Only Ruter operates services in zones 4SØ and 4Ø, and Ruter's tickets and fares are valid here as usual.

4S in Moss in Østfold

Ruter's bus service 540 operates in zone 4S. Here, a single ticket does not entitle you to transfer from one service to another. However, both period tickets on your travelcard, and a school card issued in Østfold, are valid on Ruter's 540 service. Please note that you must be able to produce the receipt you get when you activate your ticket. This is because Ruter's ticket machines are unable to activate or read tickets issued by the public transport provider, Østfold Kollektivtrafikk.

Ruter's tickets and fares do not apply on NSB's train services in Østfold or on services operated by Østfold Kollektivtrafikk.
