For the blue No. 4 bus, you should buy your CREDIBUS CARD or BONOBUS from the TICKET VENDING MACHINE (if there is one at the bus stop) or from the driver (if there is not one). If you use the ticket vending machine, you can pay in cash or by credit card.
If you buy your CREDIBUS CARD or BONOBUS on the bus, you must pay in cash.
The CREDIBUS CARD or BONOBUS costs 5€, 10€ or 20€ plus a refundable fee of 2€. Subsequent top-ups are available for 5€, 10€ or 20€.
TOPPING UP YOUR CREDIBUS CARD or BONOBUS
You can top up your CREDIBUS CARD or BONOBUS on all red buses and some of the blue No. 4 buses (depending on whether or not there is a ticket vending machine at the bus stop).
