A travel card is a ticket usable on more than one journey, route or mode of public transport within a specific area using bulk or discounted payment; some systems only cover travel by disabled or elderly people. Their validity is generally for a fixed period from the time of issue, such as to the end of the day or for longer periods up to one year.
Travel card systems are used in most of the local public transport in Norway. In the counties of Oslo and Akershus, Reisekort (meaning simply "Travel card", former Flexus) is used for the T-bane (Metro), tramway and the Municipal bus system. In Sør-Trøndelag, t:kort (meaning "t:card") is used, in Rogaland, Kolumbuskort (meaning "Kolumbus card") is used, and in Hordaland, Skysskortet (meaning "Skyss card") is used. In addition, several other counties use similar travel card systems.
