A person of full age (e.g. a parent) can subscribe to the Deutschlandticket on your behalf at http://dticket.rvv.de in the browser on the computer.
Payment for the subscription is made by SEPA direct debit by the adult person. Please have a valid e-mail address ready when ordering.

  • Then open your e-mail inbox and click on the confirmation link in the e-mail from the RVV.

The ticket ordered online will be sent directly to your mailbox each month as a PDF and wallet file. The amount of 49 euros will be debited monthly, towards the end of the previous month, from the account of the adult person indicated.

Your subscription is automatically renewed unless you cancel by the 10th of the month - directly in the online portal.

Is there a special offer for university students?

Students at the University and OTH Regensburg can purchase the Deutschlandticket at any time as an upgrade to their existing semester ticket → rvv.de/semesterticket#upgrade.

IU students can purchase the Bayerisches Ermäßigungsticket for 29 euros via the RVV webshop for trainees.

Are there social fares or reductions for the Deutschlandticket?

Regensburg residents who have a city pass can purchase discounted Deutschlandtickets in the RVV webshop from January 1, 2024 → rvv.de/deutschlandticket-sozial.

Is it possible to take other people or a bike with me?

Children up to 6 years of age travel free of charge.

Additional persons cannot be taken along. 

The transport of animals and bicycles is not included within the Deutschlandticket. Please refer to our valid RVV transport regulations. 

Will the ticket price remain permanently at 49 euros per month?

After the introductory phase, the price of the ticket may increase. The reason for this is rising fuel, electricity and wage costs. The aim is to "dynamise" the ticket in the form of inflation compensation. 

What is happening to the other tariff options of the RVV?

The offers for single journeys (strip ticket, single tickets,...) remain unchanged in order to continue to suitably serve people who only occasionally travel by public transport.

Our classic subscriptions also continue to be offered due to the extensive take-away options, the transferability and the price advantage of the classic subscriptions in low price levels. 

Can traditional RVV subscriptions still be used?

Our range of subscriptions remains unchanged. Subscriptions can still be used and purchased.
