RVF SemesterTicket

Low-priced bus and rail travels in Freiburg and the Region: The SemesterTicket is making it possible!

Students who are enrolled at one of these  Freiburg’s universities or colleges can purchase the Regio-Verkehrsverbund Freiburg’s (RVF) SemesterTicket at a reduced rate of 94 Euros.:

The ticket will be valid for the duration of the ongoing semester. It will enable them to utilize the RVF’s trams, busses and trains in Freiburg as well as the counties of Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald and Emmendingen. The SemesterTicket is not transferable and is only valid when shown with valid student ID. Students on leave are not eligible for a SemesterTicket.

Students at the university, Musikhochschule Freiburg and the PH Freiburg can buy the SemesterTicket online. Please follow the link on the right hand side of this page. 

SemesterTickets that have been purchased online can be shown using the RVF apps (Fahrplan+) and VAG (VAGmobil). A print out is not required.

All other students can buy the ticket from ticket machines or sales points like VAG Pluspunkt in Salzstraße 3.  (see link "Sales Points" on the right hand side of this page)

Without SemesterTicket

However, even those who do not wish to purchase the SemesterTicket can benefit from the local transportation system: From 7pm till the close of operations, all students attending the above mentioned higher education institutions with a valid student ID may travel for free on the RVF’s busses and trains.

From 1.10.2018 new verification regulations are in place for students who are in possession of the University of Freiburg’s new UniCard: If those students register and purchase their SemesterTicket through vag-onlineticket.de, they may use any official photo ID for future ticket inspections.

Furthermore, students with the new UniCard may also utilize the free “7pm-verification” offer, which will enable them to use their official photo ID to travel on the RVF’s busses and trains after 7pm. The document can be printed through the VAG’s OnlineShop (print@ home) – one may reprint the ticket in case of losing it – or it may be uploaded free of charge into the RVF-APP FahrPlan+ or the VAG mobil App. That way the verification will always be with you, even offline.
