How much does a ticket in the "FTQ Lab" app cost?

"FTQ Lab" app works with these 4 tickets:

  • Standard Ticket: the most flexible system. The price depends on distance.
  • Weekend Ticket: a return ticket that is about half the price of a standard ticket. Can be used only from 19:00 on Fridays to Sundays.
  • Youth Ticket: for passengers aged under 26. Fixed price of 6.60€ per trip.
  • Senior Ticket: for passengers aged over 65. Fixed price of 7.20€ per return trip.

Once your trip has ended, "FTQ Lab" app calculates which of these 4 options is most suitable. Depending on your age, the time and the day of the week, and whether you have made a single or return trip, "FTQ Lab" app calculates the cheapest option.
