7 day ticket

The weekly pass is the best option for occasional frequent travellers. The weekly pass is valid for seven days including the day it is first stamped. You are free to choose the first day of use.

The reduced weekly pass may be used by schoolchildren, trainees, students, and anyone participating in a voluntary, social or ecological year, the Federal Volunteer Service, or a similar social service. The reduced weekly pass may only be used by one person, and is only valid when accompanied by a customer pass. Customer passes are available, free of charge, from any service centre.

Weekly passes at the normal price are transferable.

What do I need to bear in mind with reduced rate weekly passes?

The weekly pass at the reduced price is non-transferable. In addition to the weekly pass, your children will need a valid customer pass.

Schoolchildren, apprentices and students, can benefit from the reduced fare. The reduction also applies to the following people:

Monthly passes at the reduced price are available for pupils until 15th birthday inclusive, and to the following:

  1. Schoolchildren and students at public, state approved or state recognised private, general education schools, vocational schools, special schools, second-chance institutions, universities, colleges, universities of applied sciences, academies, except for administration academies, administration colleges and state adult education

  2. Individuals attending private schools or other educational institutions who do not fall within 1 above, providing they are free from their compulsory vocational school training obligation due to attending these schools or other educational institutions, or providing their attendance at such schools or other private educational institutions is eligible for funding under the Federal Education and Training Assistance Act

  3. Individuals who are doing courses at an adult education centre or other further education institution in order to retrospectively gain the certificate of secondary education or general certificate of secondary education

  4. Individuals who have a vocational training contract in the sense of the Vocational Training Act or have some other contractual relationship in the sense of Art. 26 of the Vocational Training Act, and individuals who are being trained in an institution outside any company-based vocational training in the sense of Art. 43 Para. 2 Vocational Training Act, and Art. 36 Para. 2 Handicrafts Act

  5. Individuals attending a state approved vocational training course

  6. Interns and volunteers, providing the fulfilment of an internship or voluntary service is intended before, during or after a state regulated education or a course at a college under the rules applying to the education and course

  7. Civil service candidates in the simple and middle service, and interns and individuals who first need to attend an administration course in order to qualify for admission as civil service candidates in the simple and middle service, providing their fares are not being reimbursed by the administration

  8. Anyone participating in a voluntary, social or ecological year, the Federal Volunteer Service, or similar social services

A customer pass is obligatory

Pupils, trainees and people doing voluntary service can only use the BildungsTicket (subscription), the AzubiTicket Sachsen (subscription) and reduced weekly, (subscription) monthly tickets with a valid customer card. As soon as you take out a subscription, you will receive both the ticket and a customer card by post.

Fill out the customer card completely, attach a passport photo and - if you are 15 years or older - get a stamp (confirmation) from your school or a transport company (with presentation of the training contract). Confirmation from the training company is not permitted.

The customer card is valid at the longest until the proven end of the training, but for a maximum of 3 years starting from the first confirmed day of validity. In the case of pupils whose customer card is only confirmed until the end of the school year, it is valid until the end of the subsequent Saxon school holidays.

For paper tickets, enter the first and last name in the field provided.

Validity on special tourist services

There is a special leisure option for weekly pass holders:

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

Weekly passes are only valid for travel in 2nd class. Holders of a normal priced weekly pass may buy an additional weekly 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

If you wish to travel with a cycle, cycle trailer or dog on one day we recommend the VVO's cycle day ticket for 1 tariff zone. To travel in two or more tariff zones, please use the cycle day ticket for the entire VVO area.
