Information on the Deutschlandticket (“Germany Ticket”)
  • The Deutschlandticket or 49-euro ticket was introduced on May 1, 2023.
  • The ticket entitles the holder to use regional public transport (including bus, subway, S-Bahn, regional trains) throughout Germany.
  • The MVV semester ticket was thus discontinued on October 1, 2023.
  • As of winter semester 2023/24, a special Deutschlandticket for students, reduced to 29 euros per month, was introduced in Bavaria. In Baden-Württemberg, a 365-euro annual ticket will be offered to students under the age of 27 from December 1, 2023.
  • Unfortunately, it is not possible for employees of the State of Bavaria to purchase the Deutschlandticket as a discounted job ticket.
  • For more information, please see the FAQ on the “Deutschlandticket”.
