Overview of Single and Day tickets

With the single tickets you get on, change lines, get off - and back on again! Anything goes as long as it is on the most direct route to your destination.
Round trips and return journeys are not permitted, however.

With the day tickets 1 adult and up to 3 children aged 6-14 can travel all day on 1 day – they are valid up to 6am the next morning (close of services), on Saturdays and Sundays as well as public holidays the whole day.

Tip: It is often worth buying the 9am day ticket even if you only travel twice that day. Up to 5 persons of any age can travel on the 9am group ticket for a favourable flat price. It is often the best bet even if there are only two of you! Children under 6 always travel free of charge on the HVV.

Buying the right ticket

You can buy single, day and group tickets at a ticket machine, from the bus driver, via the HVV App or at the HVV Online Shop.

How do you find the ticket with the right validity?

  • Just enter your desired destination at the ticket machine.
  • On the buses, our drivers will be happy to help you.
  • The online timetable info will show you the right ticket to get where you want if you enter the desired connection. It will suggest alternatives to a single ticket if you click on the link “Tariff Overview” in the search results screen.
  • You can find an overview of the tariff rings and fare zones on the HVV tariff map.
