zaragoza Public transportation

If you go from point a to point B using 2 buses, do you need only one ticket or you have to buy a ticket on each bus ?

In most cities, if you take one bus and pay for it, you can transfer to another bus for free within the hour.

The answer above may be true in SOME cities, and when using SOME transport tickets/cards, but is is useless as general statement.

In Zaragoza, if you used a single ticket (1.35€) for a bus and change, you have to buy another ticket for the second bus. However when you use a transport card, you have 1 hour allowance for changes.

See here for details and other cards options: www.urbanosdezaragoza.es/frm_verdescarga.php…

Zaragoza is compact and very walkable. It depends of course on your own plans, but for a regular tourist in a short visit a transport card may be not worth it, unless you are doing more than 5 single trips.

Thank you

One more question, can the transport card be used for 2 persons swiping it twice?

Yes the card can be used for two. Get one at a "tabanco" small shop selling mainly cigarettes. There is a deposit paid for the card so you may have difficulty returning the card and getting it back but savings on fare is good. Also use on tram if going that way.

@Cadiz-Lover: I believe you mixed 2 words, the small shop must be a "Estanco", usually with signs of "Tabaco"

Some news kiosks sell the transport cards too.
