Tickets for senior citizens aged 63 years and over (Seniorenkarten)

New prices, valid from 01.01.2016
Subject to the approval of the authorities

For all senior citizens who regularly travel on HVV services we offer bargain-price monthly season tickets and the supersaver annual Abo-Karte all year travel pass. Tickets for senior citizens are valid for 1 person over 63 years of age, Mon-Fri from 0900, all day on Sat and Sun.

The date of validity for monthly and weekly season tickets, as well as corresponding upgrade tickets for Schnellbus limited stop/1. class services may be chosen at your convenience, e.g. from Tuesday to the following Monday, or from the 8th of a month to the 7th of the following month.

No problem at all – the few steps to your weekly or monthly season ticket

An HVV season ticket always consists of a customer photocard and a corresponding coupon indicating the period of validity.

  1. First select the ticket type you require and the area of validity as shown in the HVV Fare Zone Plan. Or enter the mask for our HVV Timetable Information service and let the assistant guide you to the right HVV season ticket just for you.
  2. If you do not yet have a customer photocard we will be glad to issue one to you at any of our HVV service centres. Just bring along a passport photo you’d like us all to see.
  3. Once we have issued your customer photocard and the corresponding coupon indicating the period of validity you are free to travel on HVV services.

That’s all you have to do. The easiest and most convenient way to buy your coupon week for week or month for month is in person at any HVV customer service centre.
