Transitional fare southern Diepholz district – Nienburg / Rahden, also available as a season ticket

Where the VBN area ends, the transitional fare (Übergangstarif) allows you to continue your journey. For trips from the southern part of the Diepholz district to the neighbouring fare areas, the low VBN fare continues to be applicable. Instead of paying twice, simply buy a ticket, save money and travel across various transport areas! The transitional fare is valid for trips to Rahden (North Rhine-Westphalia) and Nienburg (Weser). It is valid on the VBN routes 123 (Sulingen – Bassum), 125 (Diepholz – Twistringen), 126 (Harbergen – Nienburg), 129 (Diepholz – Brockum), 133 (Sulingen – Rahden), 137 (Diepholz – Sulingen), 138 (Sulingen -Nienburg) and 170 (Diepholz – Ströhen) if you leave the VBN area via routes 126, 133 or 138. Changing between all routes is permitted.
