The basic principle of changing the lines
The entrance of the tram is at the back, while the exit is at the front of the tram.
Therefore, you get on the tram at the back and get off at the front.
First, we will explain the fare you need, if you take the tram within the 1st district.
The fare within the 1st district is as follows:
For adults 200 Yen
For children 100 Yen
You have to pay the fare when you get off.
You don’t have to pay, when you get on the tram.
When you hear “the next station is (the station, where you want to get off), please press the “bell”-button.
There are different styles of the “bell”-button.
When you get off the tram, you have to put the money in the fare-box.
If you do not have any small coins, you can change the money.
(Only at the Tennoji station, you will have to pay the fare at the ticket inspection of the station.)
Next, we will explain, how you can change the lines.
We will explain how to change the line at a connection station (Sumiyoshi, Abikomichi) or how to get from Osaka to Sakai (in case, when you cross Abikomichi and change to the next line).
First, you have to pay the fare for the 2nd district.
The fare within the 2nd district is for adults 200 Yen and for children 100 Yen.
Take the transfer ticket.
When the train, which you want to change to, comes, get on the line.
Please take care, that you do not lose your transfer ticket and take it the whole time with you.
When you get off, you have to put the transfer ticket into the fare-box.
