The Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works informs the parents of the students and the students who use the school, but also the regular bus routes in the Provinces of Nicosia and Larnaca, that in order to continue to enjoy the special ticket prices that apply to students they must have a personalized Motion Card.
The issuance of the personalized student Motion Card is free until February 28, 2022 and can be done only by showing the political identity and / or school identity of the student at one of the Ticket Sales Points of Nicosia and Larnaca District (Makarios Stadium Station , Solomos Square Station, General Hospital Station, Alhambra Station, Tamasos Station, Larnaca Station, Kofinou Station, Larnaca Airport). In the coming days, all citizens within the Provinces of Nicosia and Larnaca, including students, will be able to fill out an application for a Motion Card and electronically, which will be sent to them by post with a small charge.
The available types of tickets that can be loaded on each student Motion Card (up to 3 types of tickets and electronic wallet – e-wallet, per card) are the following:
Monthly Ticket € 10 (unlimited use for 30 days from first use), and Electronic Wallet – e-wallet (the student can credit the amount he wants and will be charged for each transfer of 0.75 cents. No additional charge will be made in case transferred within 60 minutes).
It is noted that after the creation and the first credit of the card in one of the above Points of Sale (or after the receipt of the card if it is credited electronically), the card can be credited online with the corresponding titles through the website https: // publictransport .com.cy / topup / page / topup-travel-card and / or through the mobile application “Pame App” of the Cyprus Public Transport Company. For example, someone who has credited a monthly ticket to a Point of Sale will be able to upload the title online and / or through the “Pame App”. The same goes for the e-wallet.
The main purpose of this policy is to encourage students to use the personalized card, thus achieving:
reducing paper use, reducing bus and travel time and total travel time, avoiding driver-student transactions, and free one-hour transfers if the student chooses to use the e-wallet.
It is noted that after February 28, 2022 the cost of issuing a student Motion Card will amount to € 5. Also, in case of loss of the card , the ticket title or the titles that were valid or were not used until the moment of loss, will be credited to a new card with a charge of € 5 , an amount which reflects the value of the card and the administrative cost.
