- In order to travel, a ticket suited to the journey to be made must be purchased and validated prior to boarding the train or to accessing the interior precincts. The ticket must also be validated if transferring.
- The ticket must be kept until the exit of the destination station so that it may be shown whenever requested by an employee of the company and so as to validate it at the exit of stations that have validating machines at the exit.
- The ticket will not be valid if it has been subject to any kind of alteration and manipulation or if, when applicable, it is not accompanied with an identity card or does not match the specific conditions of use.
- Passengers are entitled to use the ticket that best suits them for their travel and are required to find out the characteristic features of each ticket type prior to purchasing it. To purchase tickets, passengers on FGC are offered suitable information on the zones of the journey they wish to make on the informative panels, and on ticket vending machines.
- Validation of a ticket allows for a journey in only one direction.
- Single tickets purchased from FGC may only be used on FGC lines or, in other words, may not be used in transfers with other means of transport.
- Transfers are allowed and not penalised with ATM integrated tickets. Tickets must be validated in each transfer among the different companies. A maximum of three transfers may be made within 1 and 15 minutes on one-zone journeys. For each extra zone and up to a maximum of six zones, the time may be extended by 15 minutes per zone.
- Tickets, purchased prior to use, will be valid until there is a change of fares and, in all events until the date it is specified as a valid ticket for travelling.
- If the passenger bears a ticket that appears to have been manipulated or falsified, this ticket will be removed and he or she will be asked for documentation so that any corresponding charges may be brought. The person will subsequently be requested to leave the train or the premises.

- Children under 4 years old may travel for free if they do not occupy a seat.
- Domestic animals may travel for free provided that the occupancy of trains does not require otherwise. Dogs must wear a muzzle and be kept on a lead from the moment they enter the premises of FGC.
