In an effort to reduce its reliance on Russian oil and gas in response to the war in Ukraine, Germany has opted to drastically lower the price of public transport to encourage citizens to use it more and thus save energy. In June, July and August, the new monthly pass will cost €9 per month and will be valid on buses, subways, trams, suburban trains and regional trains throughout Germany, regardless of the city in which it was purchased.

A personalized ticket – you need to write your name and surname on it with a pen – and is valid for calendar months, that is, if it is bought with a month that has already begun, its validity also expires on the last day of this month. At the moment, the initiative covers only these three months.

The plan to make public transport cheaper, a federal government initiative, has been in the works for weeks, but has met with resistance from several metropolitan transport companies and some Länder. The Bavarian even threatened to block. Finally, the Bundestag and the Bundesrat – the lower and upper houses of parliament – approved it last week, and the Germans are celebrating this decision. The savings are obvious. Example: in Berlin, a single ticket costs three euros, and a monthly subscription costs 86 euros.

The German federal government seeks to save fuel so as not to depend on the energy supply of Vladimir Putin’s Russia. The performer works in forced marches to reduce it; He claims that since the beginning of the war, the share of gas has increased from 55% to 35%, and oil – from 35% to 12%.

With the new €9 pass, it is technically possible to make long trips if you have the patience to ride only regional trains, so users can use it during the tourist season. Its use on long-distance trains of Deutsche Bahn, trains of the private company Flix and long-distance carriages has been excluded. The ticket is valid for second class only.
