Hordaland transportation card offers a 55% discount for young people

If you are lucky enough to go on Erasmus in Bergen before your 21st birthday, you can take advantage of the 15% discount on public transportation card (in addition to the 40% discount for students). Thus, instead of paying about 50€/month, you will pay 40€/month. On top of that, your subscription will extend over the whole Hordaland county instead of just Bergen. This news may offset the one about entrance into club prohibited to people under 20.
