You can use the Vy app to quickly find departures for journeys by train, bus, metro, tram and boat across Norway. You can buy tickets from Vy and other transport companies such as Go-Ahead, SJ, Ruter, Kolumbus, Skyss and Brakar. It should always be easy to make the eco-friendly choice when travelling, so the Vy app also lets you:

· See relevant suggested itineraries in the journey planner – including how long it takes to walk or bike
· Get real-time information on all departures
· Receive push notifications about delays and cancellations affecting your journey
· View your tickets and present your ticket for inspection
· Check how full each carriage on your train is
· Save your favourite routes and places that you frequently visit
· Book taxis across much of the country
· Listen to audiobooks and podcasts, and read newspapers and magazines

Thank you for travelling by public transport. Every journey counts!

Credit card/Americans & Canadians,

Hi, Any chance you could make it easier to use PayPal? Now I have to go through all menus (stations/date/time), by the time I get to “pay”, it tells Americans etc., has to use PayPal for some security stuff.

Any chance I can get to the PayPal link through a settings link, on top? Thank you.

PS Not sure about why Americans etc., have to use PayPal. I use my credit card all over Europe, and Norway in particular, without any issues, for years.

Hi, thanks for the feedback. Will forward it to developers. The reason for PayPal use, is that you can use card without 3D secure, which many banks and/or websites (including us) need to verify a transaction. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3-D_Secure

Very nice

Really nice application. The GUI is slightly overloaded, but quite convenient and informative. It is also very handy that one can purchase the entire trip including the VY train, Ruter’s T-bane and a local bus. It even has a taxi, although that one goes separately, but it is still nice to have it right here in the same application.

I see several negative reviews here saying about problems with payment, and I reckon, this is about non-norwegian cards, and those indeed should be supported, I think. Meanwhile, for those living in Norway paying with Vipps works totally fine.

Hi and thanks for your kind words!

Yes, we do not approve transactions with cards that don't have 3D-secure, due to security. PayPal offers transactions without 3D-secure, so we use PayPal as an options for customers having cards without 3D-secure.


Ticked Off Tourist ,

You can’t ignore an entire continent

Folks, you can’t sell an app that tourists are expected to use traveling in Norway that refuses to serve hundreds of thousands of visitors from North America by not accepting credit cards from the U.S. I first encountered this problem on my last visit to Norway in 2017 so you’ve had 6 years to fix it. I’ve heard you accept PayPal, but generally only folks under 40 use it and even they have moved to other apps. I now follow several sites for travel tips to Norway and am seeing a lot of miscommunication that Norwegians don’t accept Visa cards at all. If you don’t fix this soon, it will cost the Norwegian Tourist Board millions to address.

Hi, and thanks for commenting.

The problem with many cards from American banks, are that they don't support 3D Secure, which all Norwegian cards use, and most other European as well. On our webpage, you can choose to pay via Paypal, and just use your US card on Paypal to pay. You don't need a Paypal account to do this. Paypal (in this case) is just used as a provider to check your card - without 3D Secure.

We are checking with the payment systems we use, whether it's possible to not use 3D secure.

Several US banks offer cards with 3D Secure, which is often a demand to pay in European web stores and apps.

If you buy tickets on our website, with a logged in profile, they will show up in the app.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.
