Monthly Ticket for EUR 9

The Special Ticket from the Federal Government and States

One month of local public transport for EUR 9, nationwide. A one-off in June, July, and August 2022. Valid in all trains, buses, suburban and underground trains, and trams on the local public transport network. For new and occasional travellers to try out, as a loyalty reward for season-ticket holders. The main benefits for all VBN passengers:

  • Pre-Sales: From Monday, 23 May.
  • Ticket Price: EUR 9 per person (aged 6 and over) and per promotion month. The EUR 9 ticket is issued to the named person and is non-transferrable.
  • Ticket Purchase: From Monday, 23 May as classic and digital special ticket in the customer centres of the VBN transport companies, booking offices, from driving staff on municipal and regional buses, at ticket machines and in the FahrPlaner app, the DB Navigator, and the online shop (the EUR 9 ticket cannot be bought in the BOB app!).
  • Period of Validity: Wednesday, 1 June (midnight) to Wednesday, 31 August (23:59), for one calendar month each.
  • Area of Validity: VBN Area and local public transport throughout Germany (no long-distance transport).
  • New and Occasional VBN Passengers: From a monthly investment of EUR 9. VBN’s classic ticket range is still available, but for less.
  • Price advantages for VBN season ticket holders (MIA, MIAplus, JobTicket for adults and apprentices, Youth-LeisureTicket as AnnualTicket): Your season ticket now works as a EUR 9 ticket. Only EUR 9 will be debited each month.
  • Price Advantage New VBN Season Ticket Holders: Anyone who buys a season ticket from or in the promotion period will take full advantage of the special price of only EUR 9 per month.
  • Within the VBN Area, the existing additional benefits will still apply to season ticket holders and to take more people on the same ticket as usual. But, if the season ticket is used as a EUR 9 ticket beyond the VBN Area, your season ticket will be valid only as a personal 2nd class ticket without any further arrangements.

The EUR 9 ticket is not limited and is available in unlimited numbers. The ticket is excluded from exchange and return. 

All VBN passengers are requested to get information about the EUR 9 ticket in good time. Further and more detailed information on purchasing and the validity of all VBN subscription and season tickets can be found here. The SummerHolidaysTicket will not be available in the 2022 summer holidays due to the EUR 9 ticket.
