Animals may be transported within the GVH in buses and rails without a ticket – provided they are transported in special boxes and don't endanger others.
Dogs are as well included in those arrangements: If a dog is transported in a bag/box, no extra ticket is required. In case of bigger dogs, which can not be transported in boxes, a Single Ticket for children (KinderEinzelTicket) (for one journey) or a Day Ticket for children (KinderTagesTicket) (for the whole day until end of operations) is required. Who travels regularly with his dog, can as well purchase a transferable GVH Mobile Card (1 zone) for the dog – regardless of how many zones are used.
Applicable to all users of a Mobile Card and Day Ticket for groups (TagesGruppenTicket): A dog can as well always be taken instead of a person.
