Salvador Metro Fares, Tickets and Cards
A single trip on the metro exclusively is priced at a modest fee of R $ 3.30, while the integration-fare is the same as well. However, it will be valid for just 2 hours and not more.
Passengers have an option to purchase cards as well, instead of tickets. The Unit Card is the most simple card that is available. It can be used for single trips but with no opportunity of integration with the other means of public transportation of Salvador. An Integration Card is the card for those passengers who use multiple means of public transportation in their daily life and want to save some money. This card enjoys certain advantages over the Unit Card. The people in the management have made sure to look after the students of the city very well. The Student Card which is obtainable only subject to certain requirements provides an opportunity to travel in any means of public transportation. The cards are reloadable in nature.
