Ticket types

Rejsekort is an electronic ticketing system for travelling by bus, train and metro. Rejsekort unites travel zones, ticketing systems and discount schemes into one system, which makes it easier to use public transport services.
Period tickets
With period tickets you can travel freely for a limited period of time within a limited area. This can be an advantage i.e. if you travel as a tourist or in connection with events
Single-trip tickets
Single-trip tickets allow you to travel within certain zones for a limited period from the time of purchase. They also come as supplement tickets for children, bikes or animals.

No more than three zones with the Metro

When you buy a ticket, you pay for the number of zones you drive in, including the zone where your trip starts. However, if you only travel by metro you'll pay a maximum of three zones- even if the metro runs in zones 1-4.
