A ticket is valid only for 90 from the time you swipe it for entry into the station. You must exit your destination exit gate within 90minutes from the time of entry. After 90 minutes, the ticket will become invalid and will incur charges.

Also, if you are using the ticket to exit the same station where you entered, then the ticket is valid only for 20 minutes. This is to avoid people using a single ticket to travel to a destination and return without purchasing a return ticket.
