Public transport in the district of Schwäbisch Hall

Since 1 January 2000, KreisVerkehr has been the transport association for public transportation in the district of Schwäbisch Hall. The focus of KreisVerkehr is the RegioTarif, a uniform fare for all public transport in the entire district and partly also in neighbouring municipalities.

Since the introduction of the RegioTarif, passengers have been able to switch freely between all modes of public transport and need only one ticket. To calculate the RegioTarif, the district area is divided into zones. The amount of the fare depends on the number of zones traversed.

We would be happy to answer your questions at any time.
