  These Terms and Conditions of Transport – on the basis of higher-ranking rules of law and under the conditions set forth therein – shall regulate the obligations and rights of Passenger and Provider in connection with the utilisation of the local, scheduled public transport services of the city of Szeged.

  These Terms and Conditions of Transport shall be published in the unified public transport timetable publication of city; displayed on the website, in the official premises, ticket offices of the Providers; as well as on board of all vehicles put into circulation by the Provider – at least at one location by vehicles (cars).

Parties by declaring their intention to provide or utilise the services (putting the vehicle into circulation, or boarding the scheduled vehicle at the designated locations, with an intent to travel) state that they have learned and have accepted the content of these Terms and Conditions of Travel – forming an inseparable part of the Transport Contract – as being binding on themselves. At the same time, by implication, a transport contract shall come into effect between the parties, on the basis of which Passenger shall be entitled to utilise the transport services provided by Provider – complying the Terms and Conditions of Travel.

  Provider – through and by the decision of the Vehicle Driver representing Provider on board of the vehicle in question – can withdraw from the fulfilment of the contract, if the Passenger intending to enter into a contractual relationship clearly infringes the Terms and Conditions of Travel, especially if the Passenger endangers the safety of the public service (transport); he or she refuses to pay the fare indicated in the tariffs, to validate the travel ticket, to present a valid pass/document verifying the entitlement to travel or an entitlement for a discount, or an identity document.

Passengers can board and/or use the vehicles having pre-purchased single tickets, discounted single tickets (a block of 10 tickets) and time-based tickets (24-hour, 72-hour tickets), valid passes, valid travel passes or any other document verifying the entitlement to travel. It is also possible to purchase validated tickets from the vehicle driver or from the ticket machines located on board using devices suitable for contactless payment (e.g. bank card, mobile phone, etc.).

From the vehicle driver solely higher-priced “vehicle driver” tickets can be purchased using cash.

Passengers utilising the local public transport vehicles of Szeged using a ticket shall be obliged to board the vehicles at the front door or the door indicating a pram pictogram, and validate their tickets using the ticket validation device located near the doors.

  Should the vehicle driver open solely the front door at a stop, it shall mean that the front door is designated for boarding the vehicle. When boarding a pass, a valid travel pass, a formerly validated time-based ticket or a contactless paying device have to be presented without being requested by the vehicle driver, and any single tickets, not yet validated time-based tickets have to be validated immediately after boarding, or a ticket has to be purchased from the ticket machine using a contactless payment device, and the tickets have to be kept until the end of the journey.

    Should a Passenger travel without a single ticket, a time-based ticket, a valid pass, a travel pass of any kind, or without duly verifying the entitlement to travel, or should a Passenger intending to purchase a ticket using a contactless payment device not board at the front door or at the door located nearest to the on-board ticket machine, with such an act Passenger waives the possibility to purchase a ticket on board, and in the case of a ticket control after boarding such a Passenger shall be deemed as using the service unauthorised.
