Tickets and subscriptions

  • Do magnetised strip tickets (single tickets, reduced fare single tickets, return tickets, 10-trip cards, weekly tickets) have a limited time period for use?

No, the magnetic strip tickets are valid for as long as they have not been used.


  • My ticket didn't work when I wanted to validate it, and I've never used it before - what should I do?

Your ticket may have lost its magnetisation, in which case, please contact a client service representative on +33 (0) to have your faulty ticket replaced with a new one.


  • I have unused bus tickets, and would like to request a refund for them. How do I go about this? 

Public transportation regulations do not provide for the reimbursement of bus tickets (either single or in a booklet) that are not used or are partially unused.
Bus tickets, tickets in a booklet, or single tickets do not have an expiry date, and they are also issued with no indication of the period of validity. They can therefore be used at a later time.


  • Will my ticket allow me to do a transfer to another route?

Yes, you may do a transfer using your ticket for 1 hour, from the time it is first validated across the entire  Sète Agglopôle Mobilité territory*.
