The successor to the 9-euro ticket is scheduled to start on May 1, 2023.
The new "Germany ticket" should cost 49 euros - but many other questions remain unanswered.
Munich – The final decision for the 49-euro ticket, which is scheduled to start on May 1st, is still missing.
But since yesterday it is certain: the app Deutschland-Ticket, which was developed for sales, is ready to go and should be available for advance sales from April 3rd.
This was announced yesterday by the developer of the app, Mobility Inside.
What are the rules for the 49-euro ticket?
Where is the 49 euro ticket valid?
It should apply to all local public transport from May 1st, i.e. regional train services, buses, trams, underground and S-Bahn trains (and thus also in the entire MVV area).
There should be exceptions for special traffic such as museum trains or ferries.
Not included are ICE, EC and IC as well as other long-distance trains or long-distance buses.
Traffic jams on the train tracks: With the 9-euro ticket, there were still crowds in the train stations.

In what form is the ticket offered?
The ticket is personal and will be available digitally from April 3 – as a mobile phone or online ticket or using a chip card.
It is also planned that the Isar chip card can continue to be used.
There should also be a paper ticket by December 31st.
However, there are no details yet.
In any case, a subscription for the 49-euro ticket must be taken out, but it should be able to be canceled monthly.
Are there rules for taking along relatives, bicycles or dogs, for example?
There are no entrainment rules, not even for family members.
The only exceptions are children up to the age of six.
Taking them with you on the train is already free of charge.
Who benefits from the ticket?
According to the MVV, the offer is cheaper than (almost) all previous subscriptions in the MVV area.
However, the subscriptions will not be changed automatically, as was the case with the 9-euro ticket.
The reason for this is that the Deutschlandticket does not provide any options for taking the ticket etc. with you, but these may be relevant for individual customers.
Commuters and anyone who regularly travels longer distances by public transport should benefit particularly strongly.
Pupils and trainees still travel cheaper in the MVV area with the 365-euro ticket.
Is there a special offer for students in Munich?
This is still unclear at the moment.
What happens to prepaid subscriptions?
You will be refunded pro rata.
Can I also travel in 1st class with the ticket?
The ticket is currently only planned for 2nd class.
What will become of the other MVV fare offers?
The cash fare offers (stripe ticket, single tickets) will continue to be available in order to serve everyone who only occasionally uses public transport.
Is it possible to travel to border towns with the Deutschlandticket?
As of today, the ticket is always valid to the last fare station, which would also include Salzburg and Kufstein, for example.
