The ticket for young people

YoungTicketPLUS is a ticket for all young people who are still at the beginning of their professional career. With this ticket, trainees, interns, volunteers and students can enjoy mobility across the VRR network – regardless of where they work or study



For just 20 extra euros per month, the NRWupgrade ("NRW-Azubi-Ticket") is also available – which makes the YoungTicketPLUS ticket valid throughout NRW and offers even more mobility.

(Additional services such as adding accompanying travellers or bicycle transport are only valid in the VRR area – in other networks, an additional ticket is required for this. The NRWupgrade ticket can only be purchased together with the YoungTicketPLUS ticket – either directly when buying a new YoungTicketPLUS ticket or as an add-on to an existing YoungTicketPLUS ticket).

Valid throughout the VRR network

Travel throughout the VRR area (fare category D), even as far as Venlo – around the clock and as often as you like.

Accompanying travellers

On weekends, public holidays and on the 24th and 31st of December, as well as on weekdays from 7 p.m. – 3 a.m. on the following day, one person of your choice can travel on the YoungTicketPLUS.

Free bicycle transport

You can always take a bicycle with you free of charge in the respective zone of validity.

Mobility guarantee

If the bus or train is more than 20 minutes late, we will reimburse taxi fares up to 30 euros between 5 a.m. and 8 p.m. and up to 60 euros between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. under the mobility guarantee.
