Paying for bus tickets

Cash is not accepted on buses in Örebro. On the bus you can only buy a ticket with the app or a debit or credit card. 

If you are planning to make more than one trip it may be more economical to buy a rabattkort – a top-up bus pass for pay-as-you-go travel. You can purchase the card at the bus ticket office at the Travel Centre, alternatively at Pressbyrån, also at the Travel Centre. The card is not personal and more than one person can travel at the same time using the card providing they get on the bus at the same bus stop.
