Introduction of the Germany-Ticket

The launch of the Germany-Ticket, which is to be offered at an introductory price of € 49 per month in a subscription that can be canceled on a monthly basis, has progressed one further step forward. In early February 2023, the Federal Cabinet introduced a law governing, among other things, the Federal Government’s financial participation with the Ninth Amendment to the Regionalization Act. The draft law must be passed by the German Parliament (Bundestag) and the Upper House of Parliament (Bundesrat). The European Commission must also approve the project.

The Germany-Ticket, which is valid on local public transport throughout Germany, is scheduled to start on May 1, 2023 and will be available for sale from April 3. As agreed between the Federal Government and the Federal states, the Federal Government will provide the Federal states with an additional € 1.5 billion for the years between 2023 and 2025. The Federal states will pay the other half of the costs. The Federal Government and Federal states each bear half of any additional costs incurred by companies in the year of introduction of the ticket due to lower income. According to an analysis, a new legislative procedure is scheduled for the further financing of the ticket in 2025.
