What is the 29-euro ticket?

The 29-euro ticket is a monthly public transport pass for Berlin. It will be reintroduced as the "Berlin Subscription" on July 1, 2024. This ticket was previously available as a special promotion from October 1, 2022, to April 30, 2023. However, it was discontinued with the introduction of the Germany ticket on May 1, 2023.

The Berlin Subscription has a minimum duration of 12 months and is valid in the Berlin AB fare zone. This means the ticket allows travel within Berlin zones A and B, which correspond to the city area of Berlin. For trips in zone C (which includes BER Airport), subscribers will need an extension ticket.

All information about the 29-euro ticket at a glance:

  • The "Berlin Subscription" will be available from July 1, 2024, at a monthly price of 29 euros.
  • The subscription is valid for the Berlin AB fare zone.
  • The minimum duration is 12 months.
  • Switching from an existing subscription is possible without cancellation.
  • The subscription is personal and non-transferable.
  • The transport of bicycles and additional persons is excluded.
  • The transport of dogs is possible and free of charge.
  • The ticket will not be available as a corporate ticket.

What is the difference from the existing 49-euro ticket?

The 49-euro ticket, also known as the Germany ticket, is a monthly subscription that allows users to use all public transport throughout Germany (excluding most ICE, IC, and EC trains). The 29-euro ticket or Berlin Subscription, on the other hand, is limited to public transport in Berlin, specifically the AB fare zone.

A significant difference exists for companies that want to offer their employees the 29-euro ticket: While the 49-euro ticket is also available as a job ticket for companies and employees, the 29-euro ticket cannot be used as a (discounted) corporate ticket.

The Deutschlandticket Remains Available in 2024

For a long time, the future of the Germany ticket was uncertain, but clarity has prevailed since the beginning of the year. The 49-euro ticket is expected to remain available at least until the end of the year, and the price is not expected to change. It will continue to be valid for all trains, buses, and trams operated by Deutsche Bahn and transport associations nationwide.

The Deutschlandticket Now Applies to Certain Long-Distance Trains in Brandenburg

Until November 24, 2023, the Germany ticket could only be used for regional trains, S-Bahns, buses, and trams (excluding long-distance trains like IC, ICE, or EC). Now, passengers with the Germany ticket can also use IC connections between Berlin Hauptbahnhof and Elsterwerda, Potsdam Hauptbahnhof and Cottbus, and the ICE connection between Berlin Südkreuz and Prenzlau without additional payment.

New Regulations for Delays in Regional Transport

The regulations for delays have changed for the Germany ticket. The changes affect passengers' claims in the event of delays in regional transport. Previously, passengers traveling on a regional train that was so delayed they missed their connection to the final destination could buy an ICE, IC, or EC ticket and be reimbursed by Deutsche Bahn retrospectively. Since August 15, 2023, the following changes apply:

  • Switching to a long-distance train is only possible under certain conditions. Only those who reach their final destination between midnight and 5 a.m. due to a delay or cancellation are entitled to a refund for the long-distance ticket.
  • Passengers who travel to another station by regional train to catch an ICE no longer have the right to a refund if the regional train is delayed, even if they miss the ICE as a result.
  • In cases of delays due to extreme weather conditions or other events beyond the railway's control, Deutsche Bahn is no longer obliged to refund the costs of delayed trains.

Other Available Tickets in Berlin

What is the VBB Environmental Ticket?

The VBB Environmental Ticket costs 66.90 euros per month and is only valid for selected zones (which ticket holders can choose). Although it has some advantages, such as allowing additional passengers on weekdays, the VBB Environmental Ticket is probably not a good deal compared to the Germany ticket or the upcoming 29-euro ticket.

What is the Berlin Social Ticket?

Alongside the reintroduction of the 29-euro ticket, the social ticket has also been extended. Berliners receiving social benefits can continue to be mobile with this public transport subscription, paying nine euros per month. There was concern in Berlin that the so-called S-Ticket could be discontinued.

How Do I Get the 29-euro Ticket?

Berliners can get the 29-euro ticket or Berlin Subscription from VBB, BVG, or S-Bahn Berlin as soon as presales begin.
