Tickets for school children

The HVV offers special tickets for all children in regular primary or secondary education at a public school. The ticket will be issued for school children who attend school in Hamburg via the  HVV service centres. The arrangements for this may be different in some surrounding districts of Hamburg.

If you have any questions concerning your existing ticket, please get in touch with your Client contract partner. When you do this, please have your customer number ready. You will find this on your ticket.  

This ticket does not allow you to use any extras, such as taking along other persons with you or using the entire network (rings A-H) at the Weekend.

You need an entitlement form to buy  reduced-price tickets for school children. This can be obtained in HVV service centres and often in the school secretariats. After the form has been filled out and validated by the school and with a passport photo you can use it to buy the reduced-price ticket.

For children up to 14, their age is checked (only the first time). From the age of 15 upwards, a currently valid entitlement form must be shown every time a ticket is bought.

Schools Special – the all-year season ticket with special conditions

SchulSpezial_Junge

2 as compared with the purchase of 12 monthly season tickets (normal price)

Do you need a wider area of validity than the one that the district administration and the school boards are willing to pay for? Then you can simply buy a supplementary ticket for individual journeys or alternatively you can get the SchülerPlusTicket at any HVV Service centre (just present the regular schoolchildren’s ticket) as a top-up monthly or all-year season ticket.

The leisure pass (you need to present your entitlement form and a photo when you buy it) for 8.30 € a month is aimed at school children 15 and over who don’t have an all-year season ticket, but would like to use HVV services in the afternoon and at weekends.  It is valid from 2 pm and all day at weekends, on public holidays and in the school holidays. It allows you to buy single or day tickets at the child’s price.

You can get the entitlement form at any HVV service centre and often in the school secretariat. It needs to be filled out and then validated by the School.

Upgrade fare for 1 journey

The upgrade fare for Sprinter bus/1st class services RB/RE for 1 journey is 2.20 € (valid in fare rings A-F).

Changing the area of validity

If you want to change the area of validity on your season ticket, please present it at one of our service centres.

Non-transferable

Season tickets are not transferable.

Social Discount

As a citizen of Hamburg, you can get a subsidy of 22,60 € per person and month towards the cost of HVV monthly and all-year season tickets as well as on the ProfiTicket from the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg with the Social Discount.
