POS inside the vehicle

Each public transport has a special blue (or yellow) contactless terminal where you can pay to get a ticket while travelling. Here is how they look like.

How to use the POS:

1) Select the desired tariff.
By default the terminal displays the regular ticket of 3.00 RON which corresponds to a ticket for 120 minutes available for Zone 1. To confirm this selection press the top-left button. To choose another option press the top-right button.

2) Start payment.
After you confirm the selection, hold the card up to the contactless payment sign.

3) Transaction confirmation.
A beep and 4 LEDs light up to indicate a successful transaction.

4) Transaction approval.
Wait for the paper receipt. This is the only proof that you have an available ticket. Keep the receipt for the entire validity period.

After completing the transaction (step 4), if the terminal screen is red, the transaction has not been approved. Please use another payment method.

How to buy a ticket:

1) Press the appropriate button to pick your ticket. Press one of the green buttons labeled CTP (the Public Transport Company in Iași). You have multiple options: 1, 3 or 5 tickets; subscriptions for 1, 7 or 30 days. There are tickets for 1 zone (1 zonă) and 2 zones (2 zone). Check the public transport zones in Iași.

2) Insert the cash (only RON) in the special slot.

3) Get your tickets and the change (if the case) from the covered slot below.

Ticket kiosks

You can buy paper tickets and transport subscriptions from the special kiosks as well. The ticket kiosks are named CTP – Bilete Abonamente and they look like this

The paper ticket is valid only for 1 trip and only in the transport where it was composted.

If you buy a set of tickets (30 paper tickets), keep the stub – you must have it with you during the trip.

Upon entering, inside the vehicle, all paper tickets must be composted. To compost, insert the ticket in the special slot from the yellow boxes inside the vehicle (usually the boxes are attached to one of the vertical poles). 

If you need to purchase a transport subscription, you will need a passport and a small photo.

Take into consideration that some kiosk sellers may not not speak any international language so prepare your Romanian skills.

Also, most of these CTP ticket kiosks are usually closed, so we encourage you to choose one of the other methods above to purchase your ticket.
