Waltti travel card

Passengers can choose either a personal card or a multi-user card, according to preference. A personal card allows travel only by the card holder. Anybody can use a multi-user card and it is suited for joint use e.g. by families and companies. A multi-user card can be used by anyone who belongs to the same customer group. All ticket products may not necessarily be loaded into a multi-user card. Check any restrictions on the website for public transport in your region.

Personal data is stored on the personal card upon purchase. Personification of the travel card makes it possible to transfer value or a season ticket to a new card if the card has been lost. Business ID can also be stored on a multi-user travel card.

A fee is charged when the Waltti travel card is issued. The public transport authority in each region determines the fee.
