Travel rules



  • Purchase a ticket for the appropriate zones at a ticket office or vending machine at a station or on the train/tram. Validate it at the beginning of your trip when you enter the station or train/tram and keep it until you leave the facility.
  • The fine for travelling without a valid ticket or not validating it at the beginning of the trip is €100.


  • You must travel in one direction only and without intermediate stops, except for transfers, and within the zones allowed by your ticket.
  • For TRAM d’Alacant trips, validate your ticket only once at the beginning of the trip, even if you take more than one train/tram.
  • After validating your ticket, the maximum time for completing your trip is: 90 minutes in one zone, 150 minutes in two zones and 240 minutes in three zones.
  • The TAM tickets are limited to the Metropolitan Area only (zone A). When using these tickets (except for the Single), you have 60 minutes after validation to transfer between bus lines or between different operators.
  • To get in and out of the vehicles, request a stop in advance.
