Daily maximum price on KolibriCard

Since the beginning of the year there is a price cap on the KolibriCard. This means that the maximum amount of a single-day or solo-net day ticket is calculated, no matter how many times you travel by bus and train on that day. This applies to both the RegioTarif and the HNV tariff.

Restrictions on bicycle transport by bus

Since 1.01.2019 the bicycle transport in the busses is restricted in the traffic area of KreisVerkehr. From Monday to Friday, bicycles are not allowed in the buses. On weekends and public holidays, on the other hand, the previous regulations continue to apply. Also in the trains, cycling is still possible in the district free of charge, with no exclusion time on all days.

The decision of the transport companies and the district to exclude bicycles during the week on the bus is due to the fact that the free parking spaces in the buses have been increasingly used for years by pushchairs, rollators and wheelchairs. Public transport companies endeavor to provide new, larger parking spaces in buses in the future, but this is only possible to a very limited extent due to the design of the interior of the bus and the desire of many passengers for a seat.

Since then, some cyclists had to get off the bus again with their bicycle, despite a valid ticket for themselves and the bicycle, when passengers with a stroller or wheelchair wanted to get on the bus at a follow-up stop. These take precedence over the bicycle, i. the drivers are instructed to give priority to these passengers. This often led to incomprehension and long discussions with the cyclists concerned.

In order to avoid further conflicts here, and because the cyclists can not be guaranteed transport (despite the purchase of a ticket) due to lack of space, the conditions of carriage (§11, para. 1, collection of goods) of KreisVerkehr GmbH have now been changed.

We ask all passengers with a bicycle to understand this decision. Both the state of Baden-Württemberg and us, together with the district and municipalities, are seeking to expand and improve the possibilities for the safe and comfortable parking of bicycles at public transport stops in the coming years. And even today there are often suitable bicycle parking areas at the stops, or at least in their vicinity.

bwtarif: State tariff for Baden-Württemberg

The national Baden-Württemberg-Tarif (bwtarif) has started on December 2018 for all journeys by public transport in Baden-Württemberg, which extend beyond the boundaries of a transport association, as well as on individual routes to neighboring federal states. It is valid for all journeys in local trains (including S-Bahn trains) and includes the use of light rail vehicles and buses at the start and destination. It thus replaces the DB fare in local traffic within Baden-Württemberg.

When traveling within a transport network (for example KreisVerkehr or HNV) nothing changes with the introduction of the bwtarif. Despite the integrated use of public transport at the start and destination ("connection mobility"), the prices of the individual bwtarif tickets are generally noticeably lower than DB tariff in the past. This is possible because the government of BW has provided appropriate financial resources.

The bwtarif has started with single tickets and day passes. As part of the further development of the tariff until 2021, the aim is also to include time tickets for inter-group journeys (eg monthly tickets) in the bwtarif.

The Baden-Württemberg-Ticket and the MetropolTagesTicket are preserved. The discounts of BahnCard 25 or 50 on the bwtarif normal price (single tickets, round-trip tickets) are offered. For groups of 6 or more there is the bwGruppe offer. A journey costs with a bwEINFACH ticket (normal price) never more than 29.80 EUR per person. With BahnCard 50, this maximum price is reduced to 14.90 EUR per person.

VVS tariff now to Mainhardt

From 1.08.2019, the VVS tariff to Mainhardt also applies on line 380 VVS (as line 20A in the timetable of KreisVerkehrs). At this time there is a change of operator on this line Sulzbach/Murr - Grosserlach - Mainhardt.

For a year, the VVS tariff on the line 372 VVS (KreisVerkehr schedule 21) applies to and from Mainhardt. The former operator Regiobus Stuttgart will be replaced by the new operator OVR (bus traffic Ruoff GmbH) on the line 380 and extended the schedule on the route from Monday to Friday.

Connections are offered almost every hour. The rides are tuned at the station Sulzbach/Murr on the trains of the Murrbahn.

On Saturday, the buses leave 1.08.2019 only on the line 372 between Sulzbach/Murr or Murrhardt and Mainhardt. Just as on Sundays and public holidays, there are many new connections on the weekend, and over the summer months of 1.05. until 31.10. even with bicycle transport.

In school traffic SKT tickets of the KreisVerkehrs are still recognized on both lines to Großerlach. Thus, there are no changes for pupils at school location Mainhardt on the lines 372 and 380 by extending the VVS tariff.

Free bicycle transport in the trains in the district Schwäbisch Hall

Bicycles are transported free of charge within the area Schwäbisch Hall in the local trains of Deutsche Bahn (RB/RE). This allows the district Schwäbisch Hall.

This regulation applies to the following sections:

  • Line 782: Crailsheim - Rot am See - Blaufelden - Schrozberg - Niederstetten
  • Line 783: Wackershofen - SHA-Hessental - Crailsheim
  • Line 785: Fornsbach - Fichtenberg - Gaildorf - SHA-Hessental - Crailsheim

If there is space in the train (multi-purpose compartment, marked in timetable with bicycle symbol), tandems, recumbents and tricycles as well as bicycle trailers can be transported free of charge.

Also at VVS, HNV and VRN there is a free bicycle transport in the trains of local transport, but with lock-up time Mon-Fri 6:00 to 9:00 o'clock. If you want to take your bicycle on the train during the rest period, you must also take a bicycle card in addition in the mentioned alliances.

In general, the following applies to the transport of bicycles in the trains: the transport is only possible if there is room for it. The corresponding entrances are marked on the trains. Strollers and wheelchair users have priority!

Please strap the luggage off the bicycle and store it separately so that further cyclists can get on the next stop and find room. Passengers are requested to vacate the storage space in the multi-purpose compartments in favor of the bicycle, baby carriage and wheelchair transport and to take a seat in the compartments.

This is the only way to get as many cyclists as possible in the cycle season and to keep the train times at the train stations. A quick stowing of the bicycles is an advantage for all travelers, so that the trains can keep the timetable and connections are not lost. Thank you for your understanding.

Restrictions on ticket sales in the RufBus (on-call bus)

In the RufBus all valid tickets of the circle traffic are recognized. Likewise the Baden-Württemberg-Ticket and the MetropolTagesTicket of the metropolitan region Stuttgart, as well as the new bwtarif. The Nice-Weekend-Ticket, Cross-Country-Ticket and HNV tickets (SunshineTicket, FrankenTicket etc.) are not accepted. The joint semester ticket from HNV and KreisVerkehr is also valid.

Because almost exclusively taxis are used in the RufBus, ticket sales can only be made there with emergency tickets. Only single tickets will be sold, if applicable, discounts for children, BahnCard or KolibriCard. Check-in/check-out with KolibriCard (CiCo) is currently not possible at the RufBus. Also in the taxi no triptied tickets are sold. The sale takes place only for the route of the RufBus line.

From this follows: Starting a trip with the RufBus, and then switching to a regular bus or a train, does not pass the purchase of two tickets. Likewise, no one-day ticket, Baden-Württemberg-Tickets, MetropolTages Tickets or monthly tickets are sold in the taxi.

One-day tickets are available in advance at the customer centers of KreisVerkehr in Schwäbisch Hall and Crailsheim. The Baden-Württemberg-Ticket, the MetropolTagesTicket and Tickets of bwtarif can be purchased in advance via internet or mobile phone. DB ticket vending machines and DB travel centers are also available for advance sale.

For the further journey in the area of KreisVerkehr following a call bus trip, a reduced connection fee can be redeemed. This then applies to a freely selectable number of zones beyond the path already solved in the RufBus. You only pay for the children's price for each additional zone!
