Zones and zone map

The price for your journey is calculated based on the number of zones you travel through. The zones apply to both Ruter’s and Vy’s services in Oslo and parts of Viken (formerly Akershus).

How to calculate number of zones

You can calculate zones and fares for your journey using our journey planner:

  1. Go to the journey planner and search for your journey
  2. Open the journey suggestion you would like to travel with
  3. Go to "View fare for journey" at the botton of the journey suggestion

Zone map

The entire Metro system is in Zone 1.

Zones outside Oslo and parts of Viken (formerly Akershus)

In some places, Ruter's services extend outside the Oslo and the former Akershus region into other parts of Viken.

Zone 5V in Drammen and Lier

In zone 5V we operate bus routes 251 and 261. If you’re travelling to/from zone 5V, we recommend you purchase your ticket from the public transport provider Brakar in the BrakarBillett app. With this ticket you can transfer to other routes in zones 3V, 4V and 5V. You cannot use a Brakar travelcard on routes 251 and 261.

If you have bought a single ticket on board a Brakar service, this entitles you to transfer to a Ruter service, and vice versa. However, you cannot use a Brakar travelcard on our services. 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 Viken

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

4S in Moss in Viken

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 Viken, 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 Vy's train services in Viken (former named Østfold) or on services operated by Østfold Kollektivtrafikk.
