    I only know about a tenmas card for 'mayores' that costs €12 per month. I don't know if retired people get a reduced rate when they pay for the journey by cash, sorry.

    I think the rate for retired people ( not sure if it is 60/65/other) is €12 per month. I am almost certain you would need to be a resident to qualify.
