Students of the Universität and OTH Regensburg can use all lines of the "Regensburger Verkehrsverbund (RVV)" as often as they like during the course weeks and the semester holidays. The contribution is paid automatically upon payment of the semester fee at the time of registration or re-registration.
Host students cannot purchase the semester ticket.
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's Social counseling department for reimbursement.
With the semester ticket, students can use more than 100 bus lines and 6 train connections.

The universities can be reached by bus lines 2B, 4, 6 and 11, which run throughout the year. During the course weeks, the offer is extended by the "campusLINIEN" lines C1, C2, C4 and C6. In addition, the universites can be reached via lines 19 and 21.
Please note: Only validated and legible student ID cards are recognized as valid RVV tickets. The actual validity period must be clearly visible on the ID cards. Without a valid ticket, RVV may charge an increased transportation fee.
Semester ticket and 29-euro ticket for students in Regensburg
The upgrade to the discounted Deutschlandticket in Bavaria can be booked at any time as a monthly cancelable subscription in the RVV webshop. From the winter semester 2023/2024, the price for the digital RVV surcharge ticket (RVV-Aufpreisticket) will be the monthly difference between the 29-euro ticket and the semester ticket already purchased.
The surcharge is 11.33 euros per month for the winter semester 2023/2024, i.e. valid from October 1, 2023, which is the difference between 29.00 euros per month and the monthly portion of the 106.00 euros already paid for the semester ticket in Regensburg.
Please note: The price from October onwards will automatically be reduced to 11.33 euros for existing subscriptions to the RVV-Aufpreisticket. Existing subscriptions do not have to be cancelled and new ones taken out.
The Universität Regensburg and the Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Regensburg, together with the Regensburger Verkehrsverbund, have agreed on this solution. It allows students to use a form of the Deutschlandticket adapted to the semester ticket.
As a result, students will benefit from the discounted Deutschlandticket from the winter semester of 2023/2024 without having to pay twice the difference to the semester ticket they have already purchased.
