Tariff zone map and route network
The VVO tariff system is based on the tariff zone map. The zones you travel through on your journey are counted based on this map. This number then gives you the price of the ticket you need. The boundary stops marked enable you to calculate the price level with accuracy.

Tariff zones with Elbe ferries
This tariff zone map highlights all the ferry landing points in the network area. You can see on which ferries the VVO tariff is recognised and which ferries lie on the tariff zone border. No VVO tariff is recognised on the ferry in the spa town of Rathen.
PlusBus and TaktBus lines
PlusBuses have been rolling through the VVO since 2018. These buses are just as reliable as trains: fast, direct, with a regular frequency and always on the same route - and all that even on weekends. This tariff zone map shows you the PlusBus routes in the VVO region.
