Regulations of Use

People traveling on the regular interurban public transportation services provided by the company GLOBAL have the generic right to be transported under the conditions established in the service offer, in approved vehicles, and driven by qualified personnel.

At the same time, these individuals, as a generic principle, must meet the minimum conditions of health, sanitation, and hygiene necessary to avoid any risk or discomfort to the rest of the people traveling on the same bus; regardless of the established rules detailed below or any instructions provided by the company’s staff regarding service and its incidents.

INFORMATION TO KEEP IN MIND BEFORE GETTING ON THE BUS

To access public transportation, it is completely necessary to pay the fare for the journey to be made, either through the cancellation of existing transportation passes, through bank cards, or through cash payment with coins or bills.

In the case of cash payment with coins or bills, we recommend paying the exact amount to streamline the operation for the benefit of the service.

To access public transportation and pay the fare for the journey to be made, debit or credit bank cards and/or virtual cards through mobile devices with NFC (Contact Less) technology can be used.

In the event that, for some reason, payment cannot be made on said bank card, the customer must pay with any of the other payment alternatives.

To ensure proof of having paid the fare for the journey made, upon request of the driver or inspection personnel, you must keep the transportation pass, the bank card used for payment, or the ticket given when paying cash for said journey until you finish your journey and exit the bus.

If unable to properly prove such payment due to loss of said proof, you must pay the corresponding fare or exit the service.

Upon boarding, you must inform the driver, regardless of how you proceed to pay the fare, of the exact destination, indicating the stop.

Regarding Transportation Passes and the responsibility of the cardholder:

The care of the Transportation Pass is the responsibility of the CARDHOLDER. Therefore, the responsibility for possible deterioration due to misuse, loss, and/or theft will not be the responsibility of the OPERATOR or the AUTGC; therefore, if the CARDHOLDER decides to obtain a new card, they must pay a processing fee of €10, and the system will allow the remaining days associated with the current recharge to be updated on the new card.

FOR TECHNICAL FAILURE: Attributable to the system: A new RESIDENT PASS will be issued at no processing cost, and it will be encoded with the remaining days of use.

FOR FRAUDULENT USE: The use of the public transportation card by a person other than the one whose identity is reflected on it constitutes a penalty.
The penalty for this is as follows:

  • First detected fraudulent use, the card will be blocked for three months.
  • Second detected fraudulent use, the card will be blocked for six months.
  • Third detected fraudulent use, it cannot be unblocked and its use will be permanently lost.

This does not exempt the cardholder from responsibility, who must request a new duplicate through the website carnets.gexco.es with the corresponding cost, in addition to the loss of recharge and/or remaining days of use of the card detected in fraudulent use.

  • First detected fraudulent use, duplicate cost €50.
  • Second detected fraudulent use, duplicate cost €100.

The surveillance and control task is transferred to the operating companies, which apply it through GEXCO.
