Student fare weekly and monthly season tickets

These cost-effective tickets can be applied for by schoolchildren, apprentices, college students studying in the RMV area, trainees and guest and exchange students. They can be purchased from any VGF ticket office.

Please note the following conditions:

  • Children aged under 15 (6 to 14 years old inclusive) can purchase reduced-fare tickets if they present official proof of their age (e.g. a children’s identification card or a birth certificate).
  • School children aged 15 and over, apprentices, students and interns are required to present special proof of entitlement. You’ll find details of all the terms and conditions on the season ticket order form page. Ask a representative from your school or training establishment to complete the relevant section of the order form and then sign and stamp it. Simply take the completed order form to any of our sales outlets to purchase your season ticket.
  • Valid season tickets are issued with a non-transferable customer card that must always be carried together with your weekly or monthly ticket. Tickets are only valid during the period indicated on the customer card and within the stated combination of fare zones.
  • As they offer reduced-price travel, student-fare weekly or monthly season tickets are non-transferable and do not allow passengers to take anyone else with them free of charge.
  • Please remember to renew your season ticket in good time.
  • Student-fare weekly and monthly season tickets are valid for the entire inner city area of Frankfurt, including travel to and from the airport.
  • If your educational or training establishment is located outside the fare zone for which your ticket is valid, you can under certain conditions travel to and from this establishment by purchasing child-fare single tickets. To apply for this, please complete our order form.
