Due to the corona pandemic and the restrictions imposed on personal contact, the RufBus is still subject to restrictions. Because the RufBus is driven almost exclusively by taxis, groups with more than two persons must be excluded until further notice due to the distance rules. The restrictions on late connections apply until the end of Pentecost holidays.
The following regulations apply to the RufBus in the Schwäbisch Hall district:
Thank you for your understanding. As soon as the contact restrictions are lifted, we will offer the RufBus offer again in full.
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 register at least one hour before the desired departure – via phone or WebApp.
If there are no registrations, the corresponding trip does not take place. 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.
For the RufBus (on-call bus), taxis are generally used. As a result, please note the technical limitations on the sale of tickets in the RufBus (see info box to the right or below).
When registering, enter/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. If you're using the WebApp, you'll receive an immediate confirmation.
As a registered user in the WebApp, you have the additional advantage of viewing your bookings and saving favorites. In case there's a problem with a booking or a ride, the booking centre can inform registered users via their supplied contact information. Please also see the WebApp's notes on data protection.
With the help of the electronic timetable, all RufBus (on-call bus) offers will be retrieved in addition to regularly scheduled journeys. The RufBus (on-call bus) journeys are marked accordingly. All RufBus (on-call bus) timetables can be downloaded under Timetables for download.
