Single ticket is a personal ticket issued to an adult or child by the driver onboard the bus. The ticket price is based on the passenger’s age and number of travel zones. The ticket permits transfers within the zone for 60 min (1-2 zone ticket) or 120 min (3-4 zone ticket).
Season ticket is a personal ticket issued to an adult, child, youth or student. The ticket price is based on the length of the period (30, 90 180 days or one year) and the number of travel zones. The period starts when the ticket is validated for the first time.
Value ticket is money value stored on a Waltti personal or holder travel card and debited according to the price of the ticket. The ticket may also be used to pay for the trip of another person (a younger person or a person of the same age category). The amount of money stored on the card is valid for 5 years.
Day ticket is a holder ticket for an adult, child or youth. The ticket can be bought from Linkki service point on a single zone (A, B, C or D) or for all four zones (A–D). A day rate has been specified for the ticket and it can be bought for a maximum period of 60 days.
Both a season and a personal value ticket can be stored on the same travel card. By default, the card reader first checks the validity of the season ticket. If you wish to use your value ticket to pay the fare, inform the driver before the payment transaction. Season tickets can be used for unlimited travel during their period of validity.
Mobile ticket is also available and valid on lines 1–39 (not 13M) and 42, see more information http://www.payiq.net/jyvaskyla/mobi-en.html

Ticket product prices, travel zones and age/customer groups
The price of the journey depends on number of travel zones and on the traveller’s customer group and age.
There are four zones: a single-zone ticket has the lowest price, a four-zone ticket is the most expensive. Check the travel zones:
Single ticket costs 3,00 € (children 1,50 €) on one travel zone.
Single ticket and value ticket allow the person to exchange freely from one Linkki to another within one hour (1 or 2 travel zone ticket) or within two hours (3 to 4 travel zone ticket) of the payment transaction.
Travel zones are specified for value ticket upon purchase. If the journey differs from this specification, please tell the driver before making the payment transaction. The driver selects the correct zones in the card reader, and the correct price is charged to the value ticket.
A Waltti travel card can be a season ticket and a value ticket the same time. The right to travel is first automati-cally checked from the season ticket. If you wish to pay using the value card instead of the season ticket, tell the driver before the payment transaction.
Age and customer groups:
• Children (under 17 years)
• Youth (17–24 years)
• Student ticket (over 25 years, present a certificate of being full-time student)
• Senior ticket (65 years or over). Senior ticket is a value ticket, which allows you to travel at a very low price in local traffic from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
