    Could suggest me some correct sentences?

    Hi...I have a problem...I do not know how to say the following concept..., if for instance I am in London or in any American city, and I wished to use a bus, or a streetcar or the subway and I wished to use just one ticket for everything, maybe a ticket that I can use for more than one day, how could I say that? Could suggest me some sentences to use in this context? How do English or Americans call a ticket that can be used for several day or that someone can do for one month? What do people usually say to get it?

    Thanks very much for you help...:))

    A "pass" is a card or ticket that is used repetitively to gain access to subways, trains and busses. Typically, taxis are privately owned and are not included as part of the pass plan.

    I'm sure you will find different names for these passes depending on the city. In New York, it's called a Metro Card. In Boston, it's called a Charlie Card. But if you went to a clerk in any of these cities and asked for a "metro pass" or "transit pass", they would understand.
