Up to 200 kilometers Up to 400 kilometers Up to 600 kilometers Up to 800 kilometers Up to 1000 kilometers
2 days 3 days 4 days 5 days 6 days
  • : After 1001 kilometers is passed, one day is added the same way as 200 kilometers.

The first day is factored into the period of validity.
The first day is calculated as one day regardless of it’s length of time.
Example: A basic fare ticket that is valid for four days and is purchased on March 20th can be used until March 23rd
