When is the 9-Euro-Ticket valid?
The 9-Euro-Ticket is being offered for 3 months: The offer starts on 01.06. and ends on 31.08.2022. For each month you have to buy a new ticket, because the individual tickets are valid for each month. This means: they are always valid from the first to the last day of a month (i. e. from 01 to 30.06.2022, from 01 to 31.07.2022 and from 01 to 31.08.2022). This is regardless of when you bought the ticket in the respective month. Depending on the route, it may still be worth buying the 9-Euro-Ticket for just a single trip at the end of the month.
Please note: You can buy a ticket in advance for one or every 3 months.
How much does the 9-Euro-Ticket cost?
In the summer months of June, July and August, the ticket is offered at a price of 9,00 euros per month. If you use the ticket in all 3 months, you only pay 27,00 euros for the whole time. However, for each month you have to buy a new ticket.
Please note: You can buy a ticket in advance for one or every 3 months.
Who can buy the 9-Euro-Ticket?
Anyone can buy the 9-Euro-Ticket for one or all 3 months. It is therefore not limited to a specific group of people. This also includes children from 6 to 14 years, as there is no extra children’s ticket with this offer. Children under 6 years or, in the WestfalenTarif, children under 7 years who are not yet attending school, generally travel for free. However, they must be accompanied by a person with a valid ticket.
Owning or purchasing a subscription is also not required for you to use the 9-Euro-Ticket. Even after the 3 months in which the 9-Euro-Ticket is offered, there is no subscription obligation.
Where can I go with the 9-Euro-Ticket? And which means of transport can I use for this?
With the 9-Euro-Ticket, you can use public transport throughout Germany. This means that you can travel without restriction within Germany using means of transport, among others, such as city buses, city trains, subways, regional trains or regional express trains.
It is important to note, however, that long-distance services (e. g. ICE, IC, EC or Flixtrain) are not included in the offer. The journey to more distant destinations could therefore involve some changes and more travel time overall.
Where can I buy the 9-Euro-Ticket at the PaderSprinter?
You can purchase the ticket digitally as an online ticket via our Fahrplan-App. On the other hand, you can also buy the ticket at one of our ticket vending machines in the Paderborn city area, at our customer center at Kamp 41 or at one of our sales centers. Furthermore, it is available from the driver on the bus.
How is the 9-Euro-Ticket being controlled?
Our service and security staff check the visual characteristics that appear on the ticket. They also check whether the name on the ticket matches your photo ID. Therefore, we urgently ask you to carry an official photo ID with you during the bus trip.
How many buses will be used during the time of the offer?
Wherever it is possible and reasonable, we use jointed buses so that the passengers have as much space as possible. However, both the number of our buses and the number of our drivers, who are exclusively allowed to drive the buses, are of course limited, so it is not possible to have an jointed bus on every route at every time of day. We therefore hope you will understand that not everything will run as smoothly as you are used to during the time of the 9-Euro-Ticket.
The provision of additional buses as part of the 9-Euro-Ticket is currently not planned by the German government.
What do subscribers to the PaderSprinter need to be aware of?
The good news is that subscribers don’t have to do anything to benefit from the 9-Euro-Ticket. Those who already have a subscription will be notified by us about the offer. Conditions, such as transport regulations, do not change for the subscriber’s own tariff area. Outside this area, the 9-Euro-Ticket is automatically valid as a 2nd class ticket without extended regulations. The ticket is automatically charged by a reduction of the direct debit. After the expiry of the 3 months, the regular tariff is then debited from the account again.
What applies to my transferable PaderTicket?
With your transferable PaderTicket, you have a subscription that can be used not only by you, but also by other family members, friends or collegues. However, only you can use the nationwide validity of the 9-Euro-Ticket, because the conditions of your already existing subscription (such as transport regulations or transferability) only apply to your contractually concluded tariff area. This means: Within the Paderborn city area, the conditions of your subscription do not change and you can lend your transferable PaderTicket to family or friends. Outside this area, your PaderTicket is automatically valid as your personal 2nd class ticket without extended regulations. Other people can therefore not use your subscription and must buy their own 9-Euro-Ticket.
Can I also use the night bus in Paderborn with the 9-Euro-Ticket?
Yes, you can use the night bus in the Paderborn city area for free with the 9-Euro-Ticket.
Is the 9-Euro-Ticket transferable?
No, the 9-Euro-Ticket is a personal ticket and must be filled in with the holder’s data before the first use. So you can not simply lend it to family or friends.
For subscribers the following applies: With your transferable PaderTicket, you have a subscription that can be used not only by you, but also by other family members, friends or collegues. However, only you can use the nationwide validity of the 9-Euro-Ticket, because the conditions of your already existing subscription (such as transport regulations or transferability) only apply to your contractually concluded tariff area. This means: Within the Paderborn city area, the conditions of your subscription do not change and you can lend your transferable PaderTicket to family or friends. Outside this area, your PaderTicket is automatically valid as your personal 2nd class ticket without extended regulations. Other people can therefore not use your subscription and must buy their own 9-Euro-Ticket.
Does the 9-Euro-Ticket have to be cancelled?
No, you do not have to cancel the 9-Euro-Ticket. It expires automatically at the end of each month. If necessary, you will then have to buy a new ticket again for the next month.
If you already have a subscription, after the 3 months the regular tariff will be debited from your account again.
For example, can I take a bicycle or my dog for free?
No, the free transportation of bicycles, electric scooters or dogs is not automatically included in the 9-Euro-Ticket. Here, the respective conditions of carriage apply to the transport options of the respective transport associations and companies on site.
In the WestfalenTarif, for example, children under the age of 7 who are not yet attending school generally travel for free. However, they must be accompanied by a person with a valid ticket. Dogs are also traveling for free in the WestfalenTarif.
In the WestfalenTarif, the following applies when taking bicycles and electric scooters: If a bicycle or an electric scooter cannot be folded and stored like a baggage item, a separate bicycle ticket must be purchased for it.
Can I cancel or exchange the 9-Euro-Ticket?
No, the 9-Euro-Ticket cannot be canceled or exchanged due to the heavy discounting.
What happens if I lose my 9-Euro-Ticket?
If you lose an individually purchased 9-Euro-Ticket, unfortunately it cannot be replaced. You must then buy a new ticket.
What is the reason behind this 9-Euro-Ticket?
At the end of March, due to rising energy and fuel prices, the German government announced steps to help relieve the situation for citizens. Part of this relief package is also the 9-Euro-Ticket for public transport.
