The nationwide 9-Euro-Ticket campaign ended by the end of august, but even after that Deutsche Bahn wants to make it easier to use local transport.

On certain days each semester ticket allows you to take

➡️ one additional person (adult or child) and up to three children


➡️ one person (adult or child) and up to two bicycles with you throughout NRW for the whole day and at no extra charge.

This transportation regulation with your semester ticket is valid in the whole of NRW at the following times:

🔻On all weekends during the promotion period, from 3 a.m. Saturdays to 3 a.m. Mondays (Nov. 5-6, Nov. 12-13, Nov. 19-20, Nov. 26-27, Dec. 3-4, Dec. 10-11, Dec. 17-18, Dec. 24-25, Dec. 31).

🔻On public holidays: Boxing Day (December 26).

🔻During the entire NRW Christmas vacations until the end of the year (December 23 to 31).

During the remaining Christmas holidays in January 2023, the promotion will no longer apply❗.

During the above-mentioned periods, the special offer is valid the whole day on all buses, trains and 2nd class local trains (RegionalExpress, RegionalBahn and S-Bahn lines) throughout NRW.

Please note that this promotion does not apply to our route extensions to Kassel, Göttingen and Hannover. The exact area of validity can be viewed here.

You can find more information about the special promotion here.

We wish you a safe journey! 🚂


P.S.: Unfortunately, the employees of the Deutsche Bahn are not all sufficiently informed and sometimes impose penalties if you take advantage of this action with your semester ticket. In such a case, please show this document that we received from Deutsche Bahn.
We have also asked you to inform the staff again so that you can use the promotion without any problems.

If you have been/will be fined, please send us an email with a photo of the fine receipt and your semester ticket as a PDF. We will then take care that the fee is dropped. Basically you should always appeal and not pay!
