Presentation of the fare and ticketing system
The object of the Integrated Fare System of the Metropolitan Transport Consortium, is to promote the use of the public transport and increase the level of integration of the metropolitan space of Seville, making the cost of the trips cheaper for those users who use the public transport daily or on a regular basis, making the trip cost depend not on its origin and destination but on the number of stages of the particular route which the user is forced to make, lowering also the cost of transfers.
For that purpose a zone system has been implemented by the creation of five fare rings in the metropolitan area, and also the scope served by TUSSAM and the urban buses from the municipalities of Dos Hermanas, Alcalá de Guadaira and La Rinconada, as well as the Seville Metro Line 1, which demands the use of transport tickets which are common in the operating companies network, thus making it possible to allow transfers as well as to have the compatible equipment for the validation of tickets.
This is aimed at:
- A public transport more appealing to users
- A fare system more easy to understand by users
- A metropolitan public transport system perceived as an integrated and harmonized network
Public transport funding
The Public Transport System is funded by the income from the sale network and the contributions from the relevant administrations included in the yearly budget.
