In general the costs should be the same for both. However if you travel several times during the same day we might optimise your price.
Journey cost = the normal price of the journey
Billed cost = the price that FAIRTIQ charge you
Example: You use FAIRTIQ 3x on the same day for the same zone. The zoneticket costs CHF 3.- per trip, the daypass for that zone CHF 6.-. The first two journeys would have "Journey cost" and "Billed cost" identical. The third ticket however would have a "Billed cost" of CHF 0.- as the cost for a daypass has been reached.
