TRAVEL CARD

 

The PTSC Travel Card gives you a choice of unlimited travel along specific routes being operated by the Public Transport Service Corporation. Available through the Marketing Department located at PTSC’s Head Office at #60-61 South Quay, Port-of-Spain, the Travel Card allows you to hop on-and-off a bus within the specified period and route, without searching or fumbling for tickets. Nothing makes travel easier.

In 1993, the Travel Card alternative was introduced and to date its Membership has steadily increased.  Unless you are going to make one single journey on a particular route then you should really consider purchasing a Travel Card rather than single tickets.

 

 Here’s What‘s Included

  • Travel Cards eliminate the hassle of standing in line to purchase tickets on a daily basis.
  • Choose unlimited travel on the specified routes within the specific period.
  •  All Travel Cards can be used all day including weekends.
  • Choose between a Monthly Travel card which begins at the beginning of each month and ends on the last day of each month or if you are travelling 5 or more days on the same route then a Weekly Travel is the preferred choice.  A week begins on a Sunday and ends on a Saturday. 

 

Pricing

Travel cards can be purchased during the week Monday – Friday between the hours of 8:00 am – 2:45pm
