  • Short term passes: You also can buy a ticket for 24 hours (EUR 8,00), 48 hours (EUR 14,10) or 72 hours (EUR 17,10). These tickets allow you to use the public transport for the given time beginning with the time of stamping (so if you stamp the 48 hours-ticket on sunday 15:30 you are allowed to use the transporting system until tuesday 15:30)
