Purchase Instructions


Tickets may be collected only at one of the catarinense agencies or at a bus terminal.

Your seat is booked only after the Voucher is generated on your computer screen. A screenshot or printout of the payment slip provided by the credit card operator is not valid as proof of the transaction. Wait for the Voucher to be generated after the electronic transaction is completed. Without this final stage, your seat will not be booked.

In order to collect your ticket from our self-service kiosks, you must provide the Locator Nº and the Reservation Nº shown on the voucher. Without this information, you can collect your ticket only from one of our attendants.
