The eTariff for occasional drivers

The eTariff pilot project "Swipe + Ride

With the eTariff you can travel more easily than ever before. With this electronic tariff, the fare is calculated on the basis of the distance between the boarding and exiting stops - and determined automatically using the check-in/check-out procedure via your smartphone.

With the eTariff, you can not only travel easily within the RVV and MVV network areas, but also between the two networks. It is important that your starting and destination stops are located in one of the two networks. It is not permitted to get on or off the train in the area around Landshut that is not part of the network.

The pilot is specifically designed as a learning project; during the project period, various factors influencing the eTariff, such as the price parameters, may change. Further improvements will then be developed from the results of the accompanying market research.
