As a complement to the existing bus routes within the district of Schwäbisch Hall, the RufBus (on-call bus) offers additional travel options in the evening, at the weekend, and on holidays. On Friday and Saturday evenings – for the RufBus lines R64 and R66N even Mon–Fri – late connections from Crailsheim, Schwäbisch Hall, and Gaildorf offered in almost all municipalities and boroughs.
The RufBus (on-call bus) runs on a fixed timetable and only calls at stops upon request. Anyone wishing to use the RufBus (on-call bus) must sign up for it during a certain time (daily from 8.00-20.00 o'clock) and at least one hour before the intended time of departure (Application at 0 52 31 - 977 771). If there are no registrations, the corresponding trip does not take place. When registering, state your name, the number of persons, the desired day of travel, the departure time, your boarding point, and the desired destination. The booking centre will then confirm your registration and take care of everything else.
The fare corresponds to the regular RegioTarif i.e. RegioAbos, monthly passes, day tickets, and the Schülerkreisticket (SKT) are recognised. For late connections after 10:00 p.m., a surcharge €1.00 per person will be charged.
