What is the Deutschland-Ticket?
The Deutschland-Ticket is the successor to the 9-Euro-Ticket, which was offered as a special measure in the summer months of 2022. The 9-Euro-Ticket was introduced by the German government to relieve the burden on people due to the sharp rise in costs for electricity, food, heating and mobility.
It was a great success and also helped the environment by encouraging greater use of public transport. As a result, the Deutschland-Ticket is to be offered as a permanent season ticket as part of the third federal relief package in cooperation between the federal and state governments.
As a flat rate for regional transport, the Deutschland-Ticket simplifies local transport fares by enabling travel across different states and tariff zones. It therefore makes it even easier to switch the car for more environmentally friendly means of transport.
