Mobilcard Bolzano area

I read that with Mobilcard I could ride buses and regional trains in all Trentino area and that I have to stamp the ticket each time I use it. How is it possible to stamp the ticket each time if for example I buy a seven-day pass and so use it a lot? Or is the ticket an electronic one? And if it is electronic, how can I stamp it in train stations? Thanks for any help.

Yes, the mobilcard is an electronic ticket. At every train station, there is an electronic reading device. Just hold your ticket against the device until you hear a sound, and off you go. There are no devices at bus stations, however, busses are equipped with these devices as well. So hold your card against the device in the bus. Yes, you have to do this for every ride you take, regardles how often you ride on a day or within seven days.

1. The Mobilcard is *not* contactless. You have to insert it into the slot of the validator (sii.bz.it/en/…system-of-validation) at the beginning of every route. It will not work by simply holding it up to the validator.

2. There is a difference between Alto Adige (Province of Bozen/Bolzano) and Trentino. The only route covered by the Mobilcard in Trentino is that of the train from anywhere in Alto Adige to Trento.
