Overview of Single and Day tickets

You can buy tickets at a ticket machine, from the bus driver, via the HVV App or at the Online Shop.

Our tips:

  • The online timetable info will show you the right ticket to get where you want. Just click on the link “Tariff Overview” in the search results screen.
  • It is often worth buying the 9am day ticket even if you only travel twice that day.
  • The 9am group ticket is often the best bet even if there are only two of you!
  • Children under 6 always travel free of charge on the HVV.

Our Single and Day tickets

With the single tickets you get on, change lines, get off - and back on again! Anything goes as long as it is on the most direct route to your destination. Round trips and return journeys are not permitted, however. 

With the day tickets 1 adult and up to 3 children aged 6-14 can travel all day on the same day. Up to 5 persons of any age can travel on the 9am group ticket for a favourable flat price. 

9 am Day and 9 am Group tickets are valid Mon – Fri from 12 am to 6 am and from 9 am until 6 am the following morning, all day on Sat, Sun and public holidays.
