How to buy a ticket
You can buy a ticket for a one-time trip from a tram or trolleybus driver - a full one for 7 hryvnias or a discounted one for 3.5 hryvnias. The driver accepts payment only in cash. According to the new rules of travel in Lviv electric vehicles, a passenger who wants to buy a ticket from a driver must enter only the first door.
The kiosks with the press sell all types of travel: one-time tickets (discounted and general), three-day travel cards for 50 hryvnias, designed primarily for tourists, as well as monthly passes - full for 160 hryvnias and discounted for 80. Such kiosks there are almost 90 in the city.
On the website of the utility company you can buy three-day travel cards, as well as monthly passes - full (10 hryvnia cheaper than purchased at kiosks) or discounted, as well as quarterly - for 90 days of use. You can pay for the purchase with any card - which has money, of course. A registered pass with a QR-code is sent to the buyer's e-mail address. There are three ways to use it: show the ticket from the mail, print it out or take a screenshot of your gadget. Plus this method of payment - you can subscribe to a monthly automatic purchase of travel. Minus: to use such a ticket, you must have any identity document - such as a reader's card, ID or driver's license.
Through QR -code and Privat24
All trams and trolleybuses in Lviv have stickers with QR-codes, which can be read through the Privat24 application. Thus, you can buy one-time tickets, as well as monthly passes - both discounted and general (10 hryvnia cheaper than purchased at kiosks). The service is available for both iOS and Android.
You can compose a one-time ticket with one click: the number of the car you are traveling in will be displayed on the screen immediately, so you will not be able to use this ticket in another tram or trolleybus. In this method of payment, it is important that the smartphone is always charged during the trip, so that you can confirm to the controller your right to travel.
You can pay the fare not only through the PrivatBank card. IOS and Android Privat24 can also add cards from other banks.
In order to buy a ticket via SMS, you need to send a message to a universal number for all subscribers 877 with the route code, which is indicated on the sticker in each tram and trolleybus. In trams the code PNC is responsible for the discount ticket, SNC - for the general. In trolleybuses code PNB is responsible for discounted tickets, and SNB - for general.
After that, the passenger will be sent two messages in response, which will contain information about the verification code for the controller, route number, mode of transport, city, ticket price and its validity. In this case, the cost of the message will not be charged, and the passenger will pay only for the ticket price.
Via Bluetooth and EasyWallet application
The system works with the EasyWalletUa application and does not require the use of a validator or QR code.
How to pay for travel via Bluetooth:
- you need to download the EasyWallet UA application from Play Market (for Android) or from the Appstore (for IOS);
- create your account in the program;
- tie your card to it, from which the funds will be deducted;
- entering the electric vehicle you need to turn on Bluetooth and mobile data. The program reads the sensors of the tram or trolleybus and offers to make a payment;
- After confirming the payment, the payment information and a barcode will appear on the smartphone screen, which will be able to scan the controller for verification.
Such a payment system was developed by the Ukrainian startup project JetBeep in cooperation with EasyPay.
Through the self-service terminal
At the electric transport stops in Lviv, special terminals have been installed to purchase tickets from the company EasyPay.
