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

The rules for taking along students will be adjusted: Per semester ticket you are allowed

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


➡️ one person (adult or child) and up to two bicycles throughout NRW.

This new transport regulation with your semester ticket is valid throughout NRW in September and October 2022 at the following times:

🔻On all weekends:
September 3-4, September 10-11, September 17-18, September 24-25, October 1-2, October 15-16, October 22-23, and October 29-30,

🔻On German Unity Day (Monday, October 03) and
🔻during the entire autumn vacations in NRW (October 04 to 14).

During the above-mentioned periods, the special offer is valid without time restrictions 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!
