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 our 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.

Monthly and all-year season tickets

Do you need more flexibility? Then the reduced-price monthly season tickets or the all-year season ticket for school students and their siblings are just right for you.

All-year season tickets for school students living in Hamburg are automatically subsidized by the City of Hamburg, our Schools Special. You don’t need to do anything to get the price reduction. We will take the subsidy into account automatically from the next bank debit provided that you fulfil the criteria.
