Public transport in Oslo

The underground (T-bane), trams, buses are all run by Ruter.

For almost all purposes the best thing is to get a travelcard and put a 7-day or 24-hour, zone 1 pass onto it. The validity period runs from the first time you use it: you have to 'touch in' that first time, but not subsequently.

If travelling less frequently, use pay-as-you-go credit instead. In that case, you have to touch in at the beginning of each journey, and can then travel on any combination of trams, T-bane, busses, and ferries for one hour.

There's also a mobile app 'RuterBillett' which you can download and use. That allows you to use your iPhone (or similar) as your ticket, using a credit card to buy one-off fares or period passes.
