Or you can buy ticket at all train stations in same manner as train ticket.

Hello,

I live in Bratislava and use a 3 month pass, however, when it expires, do I have to go to the ticket office to have it recharged? Is there no service to do this online or at the automatic ticket machine?

It really is an inconvenience as I have to go to Hlavna Stanica once every three months when I have no reason to go there!

Your help is appreciated!

Best,
Nikhil

If you take train from Vienna to Bratislava, your train ticket should include use of public transportation in Bratislava on first day of its validity (unless you use InterRail, Eurail or similiar product). Ask for detail at ticjet counter in Vienna when buying your ticket to Bratislava.

It's valid for both city zones but only on services operated by Dopravny podnik Bratislava (that means on buses, trolleybuses and trams numbered between 1 and 212 + 630, 801 + N21-N99). It's not valid on suburban buses and trains.

Ticket inspector generally ignore blind people so chance of them having tickets checked is really low. However, officially you need Slovak "ŤZP" card - I'm not sure if these can be obtained by foreigners, anyway, even if it's possible, it will not be easy process.

Are there any discounts for blind people from abroad? What document should i have?

To get student discont you need to be Slovak citizen or study at Slovak school. So unfortunatelly, you will have to pay full fare.

Hello!
I am a student coming to Bratislava for a longer period of time this summer and was wondering whether I could buy the reduced fare monthly ticket, if I am not a student of a Slovakian university. I do have an ISIC card and can provide proof of student status abroad. If I am eligible for this sort of ticket, what documents would I need to get the dicount?

Thank you!

You can't buy ticket in the bus. There are two options for you:
- yellow ticket machines directly on bus platform (coins only)
- red ticket machines in arrivals (coins and notes) -http://imhd.sk/ba/galeria-media/galerie-gt-vyhladavanie.html?&ghp=samoobsluzne&ghg=#95347-Multifunkcny-samoobsluzny-automat

If you choose red machine, choose option to buy paper ticket. You'll get this screen: http://i45.tinypic.com/2eq485c.jpg - press button with price 0,90 EUR as many times as many tickets you need.

In yellow ticket machine, choose one hour ticket for 90 cents.

Have a nice (though probably short ) stay in Bratislava!

Hei, If I am arriving to Bratislava airport and want to travel by bus to train station (bus nr 61) where can I buy a ticket, can I get it from bus, or where is the nearest ticket shop? Thank you in advance!

No, there is special fare for international services - it's 1,50 EUR (one-way) and can be paid at bus, unlike other services (where you need to buy ticket in advance).

Regaring your other question, your parents will need to pay full fare on services within Bratislava as free travel for seniors is limited to citizens and residents of Slovakia. They would however get 50% discount on international services (based on passport or other official ID) if they are EU citizens.

Are normal 60/90 minute tickets usable on the 901 service from Most to Hainburg an der Donau?
Thanks, Dave

My parents are visiting Bratislava for a few days - they are both over 70. Do they need to purchase tickets for the bus or are they free because they are over 70? If they are free, do they need a special permit or will their passports serve as i.d.? Many thanks, Dave

However, you will need to carry photo ID for the oldest kid - it must include photo and date of birth.
