The Osaka Monorail offers three types of RideCards : a “Multiple-RideCard” that can be used at any time on any day. A “Off-Peak RideCard” that can be used only between the hours of 10:00 to 16:00 on weekdays and all day when trains are running on weekend/holiday schedules. And a “Weekend/Holiday RideCard” that can be used at anytime when trains are running on weekend/holiday schedule.
A “Multiple-RideCard” offers either adults or children 11 tickets for the price of 10.
A “Off-Peak RideCard” is available only for adults and offers 12 tickets for the price of 10.
A "Off-Peak RideCard" ticket type is available only for adults and offers 6 tickets for the price of 5 on red-colord machines.
A “Weekend/Holiday RideCard” is available only for adults and offers 14 tickets for the price of 10.
A "Weekend/Holiday RideCard"is available only for adults and offers 7 tickets for the price of 5 on blue-colord machines.
RideCards come as a magnetic strip card with the remaining number of tickets shown on the backside.
RideCards are sold for each of the fare brackets, therefore they can be used at different stations as long as they are within the same fare bracket.
Example : If you have a RideCard for the ¥250 fare bracket
You can get on the Monorail at any station between Minami-ibaraki and Bampaku-Kinen-Koen with your RideCard, and ride to any station between Bampaku-Kinen-Koen and Senri-chuo.
If you ride outside of the fare bracket of your RideCard, insert your RideCard into the fare adjustment machine at the station where you get off and pay the difference before exiting the station.
If you ride less than the distance of the fare bracket of your RideCard, it is counted as 1 ticket. You do not receive a refund for any difference.
RideCards are valid from the date of purchase until the last day of the month 3 months later. RideCards are invalid beyond the expiration period; no refunds are awarded for unused RideCards. Refunds are available for RideCards with remaining tickets when redeemed within the expiration period. (Processing fee required)
Multiple persons may use the same RideCard.
