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.
Update as of November 2, 2023:
Cancel your subscription
How to cancel your subscription for the RVV surcharge ticket:
1. register: Enter your email and password in the online portal https://dticket-fuer-studenten.rvv.de/ at "Anmelden".
2. cancel your subscription: You can cancel your subscription at "Mein Abonnement". It is not necessary to cancel your subscription by e-mail to RVV or similar!
Cancellation must be made by the 10th of the current month and is valid from the following month.
Verification of student status
Due to the change from summer semester 2023 to winter semester 2023/2024, it is necessary to verify your student status again in order to be able to continue to purchase the discounted Deutschlandticket or RVV surcharge ticket for students of Universität and OTH Regensburg.
To verify your student status, proceed as follows:
Log in to the Deutschlandticket Shop customer account at https://dticket-fuer-studenten.rvv.de/ and click on the "Verifizieren" button. You will then be redirected to the system of your university, where you can register and release your data. Your current enrolment period will be automatically transferred and noted in the Deutschlandticket Shop customer account.
If your enrollment does not begin until a future month, the start of the Deutschlandticket subscription will automatically be postponed to that month. If verification is successful, you will receive an e-mail containing the enrolment period and therefore your subscription start date.
If the verification fails due to incorrect data, please get in touch with your contact person at your university. The Studentenwerk Niederbayern/Oberpfalz and the RVV have no influence on the verification of the stored student data.
If you do not complete the verification step, your subscription will be paused until it is verified again. You will then no longer receive a Deutschlandticket until further notice.
The subscription can be canceled monthly in your account administration, regardless of the enrollment period, subject to the notice period on the 10th day for the following month.
