The front page of the ticket should be facing up.

Which way do the tickets go into the validator, the front of the ticket facing up or facing down? Or does it not matter? Last time I was in Bratislava the printing was on the rear of the ticket after validation. Many thanks for your help.

You can try to write them at and explain your situation. Unfortunately I don't think you will be successful.

Is there any way to contest a ticket? I got a fine today coming back from the airport to the main train station. I bought a ticket, and when I it on the bus, I put it in the machine that validates it, the light on it went off and I thought that was that, but the numbers didn't get stamped on, so when the inspectors checked my ticket they gave me a 50€ fine. I was just going from the airport to the train station, I did everything I needed to do, and thought that it was ok. I don't even know what they think my endgame WAS, reuse the ticket?? I was leaving the country immediately for Vienna! I'm a student and don't have 50€ to burn, is there anything I can do??

1 hour is really enough time to buy ticket. Anyway, point of your post is apparently rant, not normal discussion so.. thanks for your opinion, we don't care, good night.
