Payment by SMS

With a single SMS at 7458, available in all national mobile networks, passengers can purchase a metropolitan trip with a validity of 90 minutes, at a price of 0.65 euro + VAT, or a metropolitan subscription with a validity of 24 hours, at the price of 1.5 euro + VAT.

The payment for the metropolitan transportation titles allows the use of all surface public transport vehicles in the Bucharest-Ilfov Region, from the moment the code of the transaction is received. Therefore, the SMS must be sent before boarding the public transport vehicles.

If the validity period of the transportation title expires before finalizing the trip by surface public transport vehicles, it is necessary to purchase a new transportation title by SMS, in order to continue the trip.

The message containing the transaction confirmation code must be saved for the entire period of validity of the transportation title, so that it can be presented to the STB SA controllers.

Attention! The battery of the phone used for the purchase of a transportation title by SMS must be charged so that it should last for the entire period of validity of the transportation title.

Payment may be made by any type of mobile phone connected to any national network.


The SMS command is free of charge in the Vodafone and DigiMobil networks and costs 0.05 euro + VAT in the Telekom and Orange networks.

The safety of the payment by SMS is guaranteed by the operating platform which is equipped with an anti-fraud device.
