The 29-euro ticket is coming back to Berlin. In the course of the first half of 2024, passengers in the capital will once again be able to use buses, trains and trams as often as they want for just under 30 euros a month, the supervisory board of the Berlin-Brandenburg Transport Association (VBB) announced on Thursday.

As before, however, the ticket is only valid for the AB fare zone. Beyond the city limits, customers still need an additional ticket. The Berlin Senate has not succeeded in finding a more far-reaching arrangement with the neighbouring state of Brandenburg. The Supervisory Board also extended the social ticket. Berliners who receive social benefits will continue to pay nine euros per month for this subscription.

Re-introduction of the 29-euro ticket to take place as soon as possible

With the introduction of the Deutschlandticket, which can also be used nationwide on all local public transport (ÖPNV) since May this year, the 29-euro ticket was abolished again in Berlin. The new state government had started with the election promise to reintroduce the offer. Franziska Giffey, Senator for the Economy and Chair of the BVG Supervisory Board, thanked the VBB. She said the Senate Department for Economics was in talks with BVG "so that the 29-euro ticket can be relaunched as soon as possible - probably in April 2024."
