Who Is Entitled to a Semester Ticket?
The semester ticket is a public transport ticket. All Students of the University of Bremen are entitled to a semester ticket from the Verkehrsverbund Bremen-Niedersachsen (VBN). The costs are already included in the semester fee. The semester ticket is valid for any number of trips on all days. The VBN informs on where the semester ticket applies.
Who Organizes the Semester Ticket?
The AStA Students' Union of the University of Bremen negotiates with the transport companies about the costs and scope of the semester ticket. The AStA Students' Union reports on current developments on its website.
Employees in Bremen public service can receive a JobTicket under the VBN tariff. JobTicket holders can take with them an additional adult and up to four children under the age of 15 from Monday to Friday from 7:00 p.m. (within the requested fare zones) and on weekends and bank holidays throughout the day (across the VBN network). This does not apply to JobTickets for apprentices (see section 2.5.8 of the Tariff Rules and Conditions of Carriage). JobTicket owners as well as the persons they are allowed to take with them free of charge do not have to pay the usual nightly surcharge (1 euro per trip), on BSAG, VBN, or in “NightOwl” (NachtEule) lines. Further information on costs, eligibility, and how to apply are available from the Human Resources Department.
