[Tagging] roundtrip

Ticket pricing shouldn't have anything to do with it. Here in Belgium, you
buy a ticket valid for a specific duration. As long as it didn't expire,
you can still board the vehicle.

OK, I'm not sure what would happen if you got onto a 'roundtrip' bus with a
ticket valid for 1 hour and you are still on it 3 hours later... Oh those
corner cases!
