How it works
Start the journey

Shortly before boarding a vehicle, such as train, bus, tram or boat, simply swipe the "Start" button in the FAIRTIQ app. Your final destination does not need to be entered.

Show the ticket

If a conductor requests ticket validation, click the "Show ticket" button and the QR code will automatically be displayed in the app.

Simply change

Whether you do a short journey or a journey where you need to change between lines, just leave FAIRTIQ activated. No action whatsoever is required on your side, FAIRTIQ manages it all for you!

Stop the trip

Once you have arrived at your destination, swipe the "Stop" button in FAIRTIQ. The optimised cost for your trip is then displayed in the app. 

Forgot to stop the trip? No problem!

There’s no need to worry if you forget to stop your journey in the app - FAIRTIQ will automatically remind you once you have left the vehicle.

In addition, the "Smart Stop" assists you with the check-out.

Smart Stop

FAIRTIQ's latest innovation makes it easier than ever to use public transport. 


The 'Smart Stop' feature detects when you have forgotten to end your journey in the app and starts a count-down to check you out.
