You can purchase the pass at the bus ticket office at the travel centre (Örebro Resecentrum), alternatively at Pressbyrån in the travel centre. The bus pass is not personal, and more than one person may travel at the same time using the card providing they get on the bus at the same bus stop. There is no time limit on the card.
