FAQs: AltstadtBim

It is possible to travel free of charge all week from the start to end of service. Free travel applies solely to the trams and the bus replacement services necessary for them. The scheduled bus lines are excluded from this.

Each stop in the free travel zone has a sticker "Altstadtbim gratis I free".

As there is no possibility to check in what scope the ticket was used – for instance, a passenger can purchase a ticket at Jakominiplatz and use it outside of the free travel zone – the ticket cannot generally be reimbursed.

Yes. Deactivation is not possible because ordinary service must be ensured for passengers who use a route outside of the free ticket zone and have to buy a ticket. In addition, an increased number of passengers at the ticket machines is to be expected as soon as the line is outside of the free travel zone. To avoid any misunderstandings, all ticket machines in the trams and the stationary ticket machines at the central station, Hauptplatz and Jakominiplatz have a sticker on the side that informs passengers about the free travel zone.

Tickets are checked more in the trams up to and from the last stop in the free travel zone.

The offer applies for everyone. Also for dogs for which a ticket would normally have to be bought due to their size.
