Buy your tickets – as easy as 1-2-3.
Ruter’s mobile app lets you buy your ticket before you get on board. The ticket is valid on the Metro, buses, trams, ferries and trains in Oslo and Akershus.
Quick purchases options are based on your previous purchases and issue you a new ticket in just two easy stages.
You can buy a ticket just for yourself or for a group travelling together.
You can buy single tickets and period tickets. If you have an active ticket which covers only part of your intended journey, you can buy a supplementary ticket for the rest.
If you wish to transfer valid 7- or 30-day tickets from one device to another, you may do so twice free of charge. After this there will be a charge of NOK 100 per ticket.
You can buy tickets in advance, and you can change the start time for your ticket.
For additional security, you can change the fare limit for which a password is required when buying tickets.
Your receipt will be sent via e-mail.
In order to make your purchase dialogue as easy as possible, the ticket app must have access to:
- Your location, precise (GPS) location
Knowing your location means that the app can automatically suggest a ticket in the zone where you are located.
- Network communication, full network access
Internet access is necessary to buy tickets and download them to your mobile. Knowing your network status means reducing the number of requests to the ticket server. This means lower power consumption and a faster user interface. It also makes it possible to anonymise data (not activated without your consent).
- Phone calls, read phone status and identity
The app is not able to make calls, but tickets you have bought will be linked to your phone’s unique ID so that your device is recognised as a valid ticket carrier.
- System tools, prevent phone from sleeping
This ensures that communication between your phone and ticket server is not interrupted.
- System tools, run at startup
Provides the possibility to have a notification when a period ticket is about to expire.
- Hardware controls, control vibration
Depending on your predefined settings, the notification for expiring period tickets can vibrate.
- Network communication, receive data from Internet, view network connections
You will be notified if ticket purchasing is temporarily out of order.
- Read sync settings
Provides the possibility to automatically update your period tickets.
- New ticket image and updated graphics.
- Function to delete items from "My quick purchases".
