We have launched a Virtual Transport Card in eastern Slovakia
From 16 August 2021, passengers in the east of Slovakia can also activate the virtual transport card. Passengers can apply for a virtual transport card from SAD Prešov, Arriva Michalovce and Bus Karpaty. Although other public transport companies in the east of Slovakia do not issue the card, they accept payment with virtual cards in SAD Poprad, SAD Humenná and Eurobus.
The virtual transport card is a novelty in the payment of public transport fares. It fully replaces the plastic shipping card as well as cash payment. Thanks to the connection of the UBIAN application with Google Pay, it allows you to pay on the bus conveniently by mobile phone. The whole process of buying a travel document is simple. Instead of a plastic card, the passenger on the bus attaches his smartphone with an active virtual card to the terminal instead of a plastic card. Thanks to the link to Google Pay, payment will take place in a few seconds.
Purchase a travel ticket subscription or top up your travel credit
With the help of a virtual transport card, passengers can easily purchase prepaid travel tickets from the participating public transport companies according to the valid tariff. They can also top up their virtual transport card and travel comfortably in the same way as with a plastic transport card.
