Frequently Asked Questions:

What we need to know by validating with a bank card:

  • Only one passenger can be validated in the vehicle with the bank card. The reason for this is the planned aggregation of trips to a daily pass of BGN 4,00.
  • Always use the same media: a physical card, phone, tablet or smartwatch. The vehicles’ validators read on each media as a separate bank card and to aggregate your trips into a daily pass at the amount of BGN 4,00, you need to choose one media and validate only with it during the day.

By inspection, provide to the inspector of passengers’ regularity the media you have validated on.

  • If you have purchased a digital transportation document (MPass) that requires validation by reading a QR code and you also have an electronic wallet (virtual card) on your mobile device, you should make sure that it is closed (inactive). Otherwise, the validator may charge your virtual card instead of the QR code on the digital transportation document.
  • The payment of the due amount takes place after the end of the public transport’s working hours. You can track all your trips and amounts owed on them in the City application by DSK, by downloading it from the AppStore and Google Play.
  • Always look at what message is written on the validator. Any indication, other than a "Valid Card", accompanied by a green light signal, means that the particular trip has not been paid and by inspection you are subject to a penalty.
