On 1 May, the Deutschlandticket will be introduced for public transport. It can be purchased from 3 April. This ticket, valid throughout Germany for 2nd class, costs 49 euros per month. Tübingen residents get a discount. They pay 39 euros a month until 1 July. In return, they have to prove their place of residence. After that, the price drops again. From 1 July, the Deutschlandticket will cost Tübingen residents 34 euros per month. From 1 July, holders of a Tübingen KreisBonusCard will pay 15 euros a month for the Deutschlandticket. This was decided by the Tübingen city council.
The Deutschlandticket is valid on all regional means of transport (besides trains also trams and buses), but not on long-distance trains such as ICE, IC, EC and long-distance buses. It can be cancelled monthly.
The transport association Naldo and the public utility company Stadtwerke Tübingen will sell the Deutschlandticket from 3 April. All existing Naldo season tickets that are more expensive than the Deutschlandticket will be automatically converted. Those who do not want the Deutschlandticket can cancel their Naldo subscription by Saturday, 15 April, by letter, fax or e-mail. Those who do not yet have a Naldo subscription can apply for the Deutschlandticket from 3 April at https://tickets.naldo.de or at the Stadtwerke Customer Centre at Eisenhutstraße 6.
Students with a Naldo youth or semester ticket can switch to the Deutschlandticket. An online form will be available from 3 April at https://studis-online.naldo.de/. Those who switch can get money back on a pro-rata basis for March and April.
