Paying Driver on Trams?

Hello can you pay the Driver for a tram ride and if so do you need to have the correct change for the fare? - thanks

Hi there,

Well it's paying the conductor at the back of the trams, not the driver. In the odd case that the conductor booth is not manned tourists have a problem as driver has a chipcard check-in device at the door but never cash AFIK.

The conductor can change, EUR 20 maximum would be nice and EUR 50 about the absolute maximum denomination possible.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Trams 5, 16 & 24 don't have a conductor, you only have the option of paying the driver. Tram 26 from your hotel normally does have a conductor though.

Like I said in your previous post though you would be advised to get day cards. Single hour tickets are €2,80 each. A 48 hour ticket is €12 so if you are using the tram more than 4 times in 48 hours then you might as well get one.
