Smartcard reload without the hassles

The new online sales services of the public transport network of the Rouen Metropole (network named ASTUCE) provides customers with the possibility to reload their Smartcards without having to go to the sales offices. A very convinient way to buy tickets or monthly passes without the hassles of the sales offices and having to wait in queue!
