Single tickets are a good choice if you won’t be using public transport very much. In Rotterdam, single tickets are called 2-hours-tickets – they allow you to make unlimited rides within two hours time.
It works as follows: for every ride you make, you need to ‘touch in’ and out. The last touch-in must happen before the two hours run out. Then, you have 15 minutes remaining to make it to your destination.
The price of one ticket is about €4 euros. If you would need more than two of these tickets on one day, a day ticket might be cheaper.
The two-hours-ticket is valid on buses, trams and metro’s that are operated by RET. This company operates most of the inner city transport, plus a fair share of the regional bus lines.
Please note that two-hours-tickets are not accepted on night-buses and fast ferries.
2-hours-tickets can be bought at vending machines in metro stations, and at the Airport. There are also vending machines in the stores called ‘Primera’ and ‘Tabac & Gifts’. Another option is to buy the ticket digitally, via the RET Barcode App (Android or Apple).
All kinds of tickets are available at RET’s Service Stores during their opening hours. An additional fee applies.Back to Transport
