9 o‘clock monthly ticket

More information

Tip: There is also an Abo version of the 9am monthly pass for frequent travellers.

Anyone who likes a lie-in, or only uses bus & rail after 9am, the 9am monthly pass is an option.

The 9am monthly pass is cheaper than the normal pass, because it cannot be used on Monday to Friday between 4am and 9am.

At weekends and on bank holidays you can use the 9am monthly pass with no time restrictions.

The 9am monthly pass is not available at the reduced rate.

Period of Validity

9am monthly passes are valid from the time of first use to the end of the same calendar day the following month. For example, a 9am monthly pass which is first used on 12th April would be valid up to and including midnight on 12th May.
If the end of the validity period falls on a day that does not appear in the calendar, it will cease to be valid at the end of the last calendar day in the month.

Accompaniment at weekends and on bank holidays

At weekends monthly, Abo-monthly and annual passes that are normally priced become family day tickets.

This means that you can be accompanied by one other adult and up to four schoolchildren aged below 15 in the applicable tariff zone.

This offer applies from Friday at 6pm to Monday at 6am (and on bank holidays from the evening before to the morning after).

With 9am passes from Friday at 6pm to Monday at 4am.

This does not apply on the special tourist services (Dresden Bergbahns: Funicular, Suspension Railway, narrow gauge railways: Radebeul–Radeburg Railway, Weisseritz Valley Railway, Meissen City Tour, Kirnitzsch Valley Tramway, Bad Schandau elevator, and on-call shared taxis).

Validity on special tourist services

There is a special leisure option for monthly pass holders:

Within their zonal and time restrictions, 9am monthly passes are also valid on the Bergbahns in Dresden, for the Meissen city tour, the Radebeul–Radeburg and Weisseritz Valley narrow gauge railways, the Kirnitzsch Valley Tramway and the Bad Schandau elevator.
So, for example, a 9am monthly pass for the Dresden tariff zone is valid on the Bergbahns in Dresden, but not for the Meissen city tour, the Radebeul–Radeburg and Weisseritz Valley narrow gauge railways, the Kirnitzsch Valley Tramway or the Bad Schandau elevator.

If this season ticket is valid in the tariff zone(s) where

  • the Bergbahns in Dresden (Funicular Railway, Suspension Railway),
  • the narrow gauge railways (Radebeul–Radeburg and Weisseritz Valley),
  • the Meissen city tour,
  • the Kirnitzsch Valley Tramway and
  • the Bad Schandau elevator

operate, you may also use those special tourist services.

Validity in 1st class

9am monthly passes are only valid in 2nd class. Holders of normally priced monthly passes may buy an additional weekly pass or an additional monthly pass to use 1st class in local trains.

Options for combining with other tickets

In the VVO region, you can easily combine all tickets. The only exception is the 4-ride ticket for short journeys, whose sections you cannot combine.

Note on validity and stamping of tickets:

Single tickets are valid for an hour longer if they are stamped in the tariff zone for which you already have a day ticket or season pass. If you are travelling on local trains, you should stamp all the tickets you need for your journey before getting on any train at the platform.

If your journey begins in a tram or bus, then stamp the tickets after entering the vehicle. If there is a ticket inspection, please show all your tickets in order to avoid any misunderstanding.

Examples of combination

Example: monthly pass + single trip

You use a monthly pass for the tariff zone Dresden and want to travel to Wehlen in one day? Then buy a single trip for a tariff zone for the onward journey in the tariff zone Pirna. Since you stamp the single ticket in the tariff zone Dresden itself, even though you still have a monthly pass there, it is valid for a longer duration. You then have two hours from the time of stamping to reach Wehlen.

Example: monthly pass + day ticket

You have a monthly pass for both the Radebeul and Dresden tariff zones and want to go hiking in Saxon Switzerland? Then you can additionally buy a day ticket for the Pirna and Bad Schandau tariff zones. Stamp these before boarding the suburban train and you can be mobile throughout the day.

Cycles, cycle trailers and dogs

Within the zones and times for which your pass is valid you may take a cycle, cycle trailer or dog free of charge.
