Current tariff information

bwtarif: New state tariff from 9th December 2018

The national Baden-Württemberg-Tarif (bwtarif) starts on 9 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. He 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, the prices of the individual bwtarif tickets will generally be noticeably lower than today's DB tariff. This is possible because the government of BW has provided appropriate financial resources.

The bwtarif starts on 9 December 2018 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 will be 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.

All further information about the bwtarif you see at www.bwtarif.de.

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.

  2. The supply of a personal annual ticket for the price of 28 Euro (JobTicket City) or 41 Euro per Monat (JobTicket Netz) by every single employee that wants to use the offer.
