Here we present some useful tips about validation of tickets in CARRIS:
Its mandatory to validate your Lisboa Viva, 7 Colinas or Viva Viagem card in each entrance in our vehicles.

The ticket is only considerated valid and validated if the validation machine issues a green light.

Each passenger must have it´s own card charged with a valid transport ticket for the journey he wants´ to make.
