About this app

Ruter's mobile app lets you buy your ticket before you get on board. The app is valid on the Metro, buses, trams, ferries and trains in Oslo and Akershus.
RuterBillett requests access permission to the following functions:

- Read phone status and identity:

- Access precise location (GPS and network-based)
Used in connection with ticket purchases, so that RuterBillett can automatically suggest a ticket based on the zone in which you are located. You can still purchase a ticket even if the location function is turned off, but you must manually enter the stop or station from which the ticket will apply.

- Receiving data from the internet:

It needs a widget for departure times for your selected stops. So many years and still don't have such simple yet usefully functionality. Instead of opening the app and getting lost in the menu it should be accessible from the home screen. I remember having a widget providing this from an unofficial developer over 10 years ago! Their priorities is obviously wrong as they keep raising prices but never improve the customer experience. The busses is always so dirty I'm close to vomiting evrytim 🤢

Good app for tickets for 1 person except you will need to get paypal if you are not from a scandanavian country (which isnt that hard to complete in about 2 mins but annoying why visa or google pay is accepted like other scandanavian transport apps we used). Complicated if you want to buy a ticket for someone else and dont live in Scandanavia - was too hard for me to figure out!

Hi, that's right what you say. To buy a ticket to non-Scandinavian numbers you can buy a ticket for your own telephone number. When sms arrives you forward it to the person who you want to buy the ticket to. The receiver of the forwarded SMS can open the link and download the ticket. Regards Zohaib/Ruter AS

I've used the app in '18 and it worked fine.From '19 they changed the app,making it more difficult for ticket purchase. It has become impossible to buy a ticket unless your credit card (mine was Visa electron) has been issued in limited number of european countries.Staff weren't much helpfull. Save your time and energy and go buy the ticket in near kiosk (if you 're at the airport). I've expected more from public transportation system.

Hi Brankica. Your right about the app only acceptingn cards issued in certain european countries. We are working on getting PayPal as a payment solution that will make it easier for foreign Android users to buy their tickets. Unfortunately, I don't have a specific date yet, but we hope to have it in place during this spring. Regards Amy
