Travelling in the VVO area
The VVO area is divided into 21 tariff zones. Whichever form of transport you use, and however often you get on and off, the prices you pay are based on these zones. When you travel, you simply count the number of zones you will pass through.
|Tariff zone||Name||Tariff zone||name|
Some bus and train lines leave the VVO area, but the VVO tariff still applies on them. Additional zones have been created on the outskirts of the VVO area.
|81||Bischofswerda||264, 265, 520, 535, 748, 750, 795|
|82||Königswartha||500, 709, 710, 775, 780, 785, 790, 791, 796|
|93||Elsterwerda||RB 31, RB 45|
Border stop and border area
Tariff zones usually touch at individual stops, sometimes in a whole town or between stops. If you travel from one tariff zone to the next, you normally pay for both tariff zones - with one exception:
Imagine you use only a few metres from both fare zones: Let's say you get on just before a border to reach your destination after only a few stops in the next tariff zone.
For such short journeys, we have set up an extra area on certain routes: the border area.
For this, you can use single journeys for 1 tariff zone or weekly or monthly tickets with the imprint "Grenzraum".
