Rygge airport using bus/train pass

Hello, We are going to Oslo for a week and are planning to buy zone 2 passes for ferry and buses. We will need to go out to Rygge airport to pick up our daughter who is joining us during the trip. Can we use the pass for part of the journey or do we need to buy train or bus tickets ? Would it be more economical to buy a different pass ? One of us is 67 so can get a senior fare .... please can you advise what would be best way for us to get a return to Rygge airport? Thanks for your help. Mel

Ruter tickets and travel cards are generally valid for travel within Oslo and Akershus counties. Rygge is in Østfold county, not covered by the Ruter ticket system.

In theory you save a few NOK by buying train tickets Oslo-Son with your travel pass and supplementary tickets for zone 4 and then separate tickets Son-Rygge, but IMO more hassle than it is worth.

On Rygge-ekspressen, the quickest and most convenient way to travel to/from Rygge airport, the Ruter travel pass has no validity.

The train is the most comfortable option, though perhaps avoid at rush hour. Free shuttle bus between Rygge station and airport.

Why are you buying zone 2 passes? Just about everything is within zone 1. If you just need one trip to zone 2 buy a supplementary ticket.
