Is there a term for a public ticket you can make a transfer with?

"Transferable ticket" is wrong, I suppose, because it is a ticket more people can use (it is not bound to a single physical human being).

What is the correct term?

  • What do you mean by "you can make a transfer with?" From bus to train? – Jan Jun 20 '19 at 13:49
  • @Jan From bus to another bus, for example. – vojta Jun 20 '19 at 13:50
  • @Jan Such a ticket is usually valid for N minutes and you can use whatever bus, metro or tram you want during this time. (it is just the opposite of how public Paris Metro tickets work - if you want to go by second train there, you have to buy a new ticket) – vojta Jun 20 '19 at 13:52

A transfer ticket

Also, if you change from metro to bus or from tram to trolley, you might think that you need two single tickets, but that’s not true. There is a special kind of ticket for these situations – a transfer ticket (welovebudapest.com).

Ticket costs 32 CZK (transfer ticket for multiple uses/long ride) and allows you to travel on buses, the metro and trams for up to 90 minutes (prague-guide.co.uk).

This is different from transverable ticket, which can be used by different people. Non-transferable ticket cannot be transferred from one passenger to another (Businessdictionary).

  • I am not sure this is the correct answer, because the Swiss Transfer Ticket is for a transfer from the airport or the border to any town - it is not mentioned whether you could use different more means of transport or more vehicles. – vojta Jun 20 '19 at 14:02

    I found another example, which says exactly that. – Jan Jun 20 '19 at 14:05
  • The Swiss Transfer Ticket just sounds like a standard 'transfer to the hotel of staying' option you would add to a holiday – Smock Jun 20 '19 at 14:17
  • No problem, removed that. – Jan Jun 20 '19 at 14:17
