Due to restrictions related to the coronavirus, students of the Universität Passau are not able to carry out the required validation of their student IDs for the summer semester 2020. In addition, new student IDs (e.g. for first semester students) may not be made available. For this reason, the following regulations apply until 30.09.2020:

  • Student IDs valid for the winter semester 2019/2020 can also be used as semester tickets in the summer semester 2020.
  • Students without a student ID can use the valid certificate of enrolment (summer semester 2020) in paper form as a semester ticket.

For both variants, an official photo ID must be carried along as before.


Since the summer semester 2013, students can use the public transport of the Verkehrsbetriebsgesellschaft Passau (VBP) free of charge. The student card, now with the VBP logo, in combination with the identity card or passport serve as a bus ticket.

With the semester ticket, buses on the routes of the Verkehrsbetriebsgesellschaft Passau can be used. The ticket is valid daily and for all routes except for the "Oberhausbus". The ticket can also be used during the half-year holidays.

A fee of 20 euros must be paid upon re-registration for each semester. The price of the ticket is only advantageous when everyone participates.

Disabled students who are entitled to free public transportation and who have the disability card and the attached sheet with the sticker can apply to the Studentenwerk Social counseling department for a refund.

Please note that you must also present the identity card or passport in addition to the student card. This is not sufficient. The ticket is not transferable.
