ABOUT YOUR TICKET
Types of tickets
We sell both tickets that are changeable/refundable and tickets that are non-changeable/nonrefundable. We offer an opportunity to reserve seats which must be done prior to departure and in connection with booking the ticket. We sell tickets/cards that are valid for a certain period (season tickets) and tickets that are not valid for a certain period.
The passenger must have a valid ticket to travel. A passenger who boards a train without a valid ticket must purchase a ticket on-board the train no later than 15 minutes from departure, failing which the passenger shall be deemed not to have a valid ticket. You can buy a ticket on our website www.mtr.se or via our App “MTR Express”. You can also buy a ticket from the on-board staff. You might be asked to show a valid form of personal identification (“ID”)**. If you have purchased a personal ticket, we often request to see a valid ID in cases where the ticket was purchased less than 24 hours before departure.
