Not the right ticket?
Maybe one of these offers will suit you:

  • Monthly pass subscription Regional tariff

    Do you travel regularly during year on the railway lines in rural districts around the Hanover region? If so, the best solution might be to opt for a Monthly pass subscription Regional tariff. It enables you not only to use many regional trains but as well all buses, trams and trains within the GVH tariff area. If you regularly travel on local and regional transport, the Deutschland ticket, which is valid throughout Germany and costs 49 euros per month, may also be worthwhile for you.
  • Youth pass

    With the Youth pass (up to the age of 22) you can travel extremely favourably within the entire GVH tariff area (ABC). But you must be pupil (primary school and lower and upper secondary school) and also not entitled to use free transport because of the School pass or you are not carrying out a voluntary service (FSJ / FÖJ / FWJ / BFD). The pass is also valid in your free time and during school holidays. Apprentices (all part time apprentices of vocational schools up to the age of 22) can also use the Youth pass for 15 euros per month. Furthermore, a free and valid customer card is required.
  • Monthly pass education subscription

    If you subscribe to a Monthly pass education subscription, you can reach your training place and vocational school twelve months long by bus, tram or train. In doing so you save a lot of money: the Monthly pass education subscription is significantly less expensive than twelve regular Monthly passes education. Apprentices up to and including 22 years of age can also use the Youth Pass. It costs only 15 euros per month and is valid in all three tariff zones (A, B and C) of the GVH. It can therefore be an inexpensive alternative to a subscription. Please note that we offer the Apprenticeship pass, this can also be a low-cost alternative.
