With the Waltti system, public transport prices are determined on the basis of travel zones rather than kilometres travelled. LSL transport region is divided into nine travel zones (map below).

You can choose between a personal and a multi-user card. A personal Waltti card can only be used by the person it’s been purchased for. A personal card can include e.g. student or senior discount. If a personal travel card is lost, the value or season remaining on it can be transferred to a new card at the Lahti-Piste service point (Lahti Public Library – Central Library). A multi-user card can be used by anyone and any value or season remaining on a lost multi-user card cannot be transferred to a new card.





You can load a season ticket to your Waltti travel card for unlimited travel during that period within the zones you have selected. The season ticket is personal and it must be for at least 30 days.

The price of the season ticket is the same for all passenger and age groups (children, young people, students, adults and seniors). You may also load value (5–500 euros) to your Waltti travel card. With the card, the price of a single ticket is approximately 25-35% lower than for a corresponding single ticket paid in cash.
