Tickets for senior citizens (63+)

For all senior citizens who use our services regularly we have monthly season tickets at budget prices as well as the supersaver all year travel pass (you will need some proof of your age).
Tickets for senior citizens are valid Mon – Fri from 9 am, all day on Sat, Sun as well as on public holidays for 1 person aged 63 years or older. The ticket always comprises a personal pass and a sticker with the area and period it is valid for.

All season tickets and supplements are valid up to the close of services on the last day given. Close of services is 6 am on the following day.

In the case of monthly season tickets and the integrated supplementary charge for Express Bus/1st class you can choose the first day your ticket is to be valid yourself, e.g. from the 8th of a month up to the 7th of the following month. 

You don’t have a personal pass yet?

  1. You will be happy to issue a personal pass free of charge in any of our HVV Service Centres. Just bring along a passport photo you like and your ID as proof of your age.
  2. After you have your personal pass and have bought the sticker you are free to travel from the chosen date.

You already have a personal pass?

Then all you need to do is buy your sticker in our HVV Online Shop or come in to one of our Service Centres in person.
