In Vaasa you can pay for a bus trip by mobile phone from 28 October 2019. 

You can buy a mobile ticket for a bus trip by downloading the Waltti Mobiili app on your phone from Google Play or the App Store. You can choose from a single ticket or a day ticket. The validity of the mobile ticket begins at the moment of purchase.

You can use the mobile ticket to travel in the Vaasa region on bus routes 1-5, 7-11 and 13-16, school and special services E1-E5 and route 6 between the Vaasa city centre and Kivihaka. Mobile tickets are not accepted on service buses.

The mobile ticket is read on the bus by displaying a ticket on the phone screen to the reader device. The ticket must be purchased before the start of the journey.

Choose from a single ticket or a day ticket

A ticket on the mobile app costs €3 for adults and €1.50 for children (6-18 years). You can also buy several tickets on the same phone, for example, for an adult / child journey. Children under the age of 7 may travel with a mobile ticket-paying passenger free of charge.

New on Vaasa buses is the day ticket, which is valid for 24 hours from the date of purchase. The cost of a day ticket is €5.20 for an adult and €3 for a child (6-18 years).

A student discount is not available for mobile tickets.

More detailed information and instructions for using the Waltti Mobile app can be found at or at the Wasa Citybus and Citizen Services service points.
