Consumers are moaning about the sharp rise in energy prices. That’s why the Bundestag and Bundesrat have now decided to ease the burden on people. One part of the relief package is the 9-euro ticket. It is valid in June, July and August for second-class travel on all local trains, regional trains and buses, and trains throughout Germany. Long-distance travel (i.e. ICE, IC and EC trains) and Flixbus and Flixtrain are excluded. The ticket can be purchased in advance from the Naldo or VVS transport associations, for example, either individually or for all three months at once. The ticket is only valid for one month for one person and cannot be transferred. Only children under the age of six and dogs may travel free of charge. Whether and when bicycles can be taken along can be found on the homepage of each transport association. The transport association also provides information on its website about how it handles refunds for subscriptions that have already been paid for. The federal government is giving the federal states 2.5 billion euros to make up for the lost revenue from the 9-euro tickets.
