In and around Hamburg

For new citizens

Hello and Moin!

It’s nice that you have found a new home here. Setting up home somewhere new always means a fresh start for your mobility too. Where is the nearest bus stop? When does the next train leave?

To help you get quickly from point A to point B without any hassle, the Hamburg Public Transport Association (Hamburger Verkehrsverbund - HVV) runs a comprehensive and tightly meshing network of services. Wherever you want to go, you can easily get there by bus, train and ferry.

We have put together the most important information for you here:

HVV.de

Under the header Timetables you can find your route in no time at all. Besides the departure times, you can also dial up a map of the surrounding area, the timetables at individual stops and stations and for individual lines.

The HVV App

Just enter your start point and destination and your preferred time to leave or arrive. And you get your connection straight off, with the nearest stop or station, travel time including walking and the price for a Single Ticket.

Person to person

You can reach us on our HVV Infoline under 040/19 449. If you need personal advice, just go into one of our many service centres and sales points – there is bound to be one near you. We look forward to seeing you there.

We have just the right ticket for every passenger.
Whether you are travelling on your own or in a group, frequently or only now and then, short distances or long trips – we have the right ticket for you. Children up to the age of 6 don’t need a ticket at all on our services.

Single and Day Tickets

For all those who only travel by bus and rapid transit now and again, we have single and day tickets.

Single Tickets take you directly where you want to go – and you can change lines or interrupt your journey.
With Day Tickets, you can be more flexible:

  • With an All-Day Ticket you can travel all day on one day yourself.
  • With the 9 am Day Ticket you can travel with up to 3 children (aged 6-14) between 9 am and 6 am the following morning.
  • With the 9 am Group Ticket, up to 5 persons of any age can travel at a bargain price all day.

Season tickets

Our weekly and monthly season tickets at budget prices are good value for all those who use our services often and regularly.
On top of this, there are special concessionary offers for school children, apprentices, trainees and students, as well as for children and senior citizens 63+.
You can get all season tickets on a yearly subscription basis, cancellable to the end of any month and with a whole range of benefits, e.g. with a saving of some 20 % compared to a monthly season ticket!

Buying your ticket – save 3% online or via mobile

You can buy Single and Day Tickets from the bus driver, at ticket machines, via the App, or as a print@home ticket from our Online Shop. Tickets do not need to be stamped and cancelled before you start your journey as they do in some German cities. Our tip: buy Single, Day, Group and supplementary tickets online or in the HVV App, then you not only save the annoying search for the right small change, you even get 3% off! 

Mobility for everyone

We have put together a special information package for mobility-impaired passengers to help you when using HVV trains, buses and harbour ferries.

Service offers for your car

Are you using your own car? Then why not take advantage of the convenient Park+Ride facilities at one of our rapid transit and regional rail stations?  That way you save yourself the hassle of trying to find somewhere to park in the Inner City. And for all those who only need a car occasionally, we have attractive offers from our car sharing partners.

Do you want to take your bike along?

You can take your bike on bord HVV rapid transit and regional rail services, on the ferries as well as on many buses subject to certain conditions.
