Germany approves €49 public transport ticket to boost sustainable travel

After the success of the 9€ tickets, the German government has approved a new public transport ticket, called the Deutschlandticket, which will be available as a monthly subscription for €49 and valid throughout Germany on most means of public transport. It can be used for unlimited travel within the country, on any regional train, any day of the week, including holidays. The ticket will not include long-distance trains and long-distance buses. The success of the €9 ticket last summer has encouraged the German government to introduce this new affordable public transport option that would make it easier and cheaper for people to travel throughout the country. The €49 Deutschlandticket is expected to build on the momentum of the €9 ticket by providing a more permanent and sustainable solution to improve access to public transport.
The implementation of the ticket will be the responsibility of Germany's regions, and Berlin will provide €1.5 billion a year through 2025 to support it. The introduction of the ticket is expected to make public transport more affordable and accessible, which could encourage people to use public transport instead of cars, ultimately reducing carbon emissions and helping the environment. . The Deutschlandticket is set for release starting in May 2023 and will be available for purchase until 31st December of the same year.
