Taking your bicycle or dog

Taking your bicycle or dog with you in the VVO area

If you wish to take your bike or dog on a bus or train, just buy a bicycle day ticket in addition to your Saxony ticket. The price is based on the tariff zones in which you intend to travel:

  • To travel in one tariff zone you need the price level 1 cycle day ticket, costing 2,20 Euro.
  • - To travel in two or more tariff zones, buy the cycle day ticket for the entire VVO area, costing 3,30 Euro.

The cycle day ticket is valid up to 4am on the day following the day of stamping. Taking bikes and dogs with you is possible depending on capacity.


Taking your bicycle or dog with you outside the VVO area

If you are taking your bike outside the VVO area, you will also need one DB cycle day ticket per bike at a cost of 6.00 euro, in addition to the Saxony ticket (as of: December 2020).

If you travel with your dog outside the VVO area, large dogs count as adult passengers (booked under the term 'dog' instead of traveller). Small dogs (up to the size of a domestic cat) can travel in a transport carrier free of charge.

Tip for families

The Saxony Ticket is particularly good value for families, too, as any number of your own children or grandchildren below the age of 15 can travel free of charge with you when you buy the Saxony Ticket for one or two people.

Children up to and including the age of 5 can usually travel free of charge with you, no matter whether they are your children or not. If you are travelling with children between the age of 5 and 14 who are not your own children or grandchildren, they count as normal companions. Any dogs who are liable to be paid for also count as normal companions.
