0

The new monthly ticket initiative will be valid for 90 days.

The pass is valid on regional and local services throughout Germany.

IN response to rising energy and fuel costs, the German government has launched a new temporary “9 for 90” monthly ticket initiative covering regional and local trains throughout Germany from June to September. Tickets cost €9 per month for 90 days, or €27 in total.

The government announced additional funding of €2.5 billion for the country’s 16 federal states to fund the initiative as they collect fare revenues and pay transport operators. The government has also agreed another one-off payment of €1.2 billion to states to cover pandemic-related costs in 2022.

The “9 for 90” program will only be available through digital sales using a smartphone app. In addition to offering commuters a significant saving, the ticket price is roughly the price of a typical existing off-peak day ticket for a single federal state, which is typically €23 to €29 per day, this which makes them interesting for many existing ones. and potential travelers.

Current subscription holders will receive free three-month extensions to cover the period the program is available. This initiative to promote the use of public transport comes on top of other measures, including a €300 per person payment to taxpayers to offset rising energy and other costs.
