  • More information can be found on the Open University website.

Payment in the app is made at the end of each month and the app calculates for you the most profitable fare - any combination of individual tickets, "Daily Pass" tickets, and a "Nationwide Pass" contracts, that will keep you from paying too much. In any situation, just get on - and travel.
