City-Ticket for BahnCard holders – convenience from door to door
City-Ticket was developed in cooperation between Deutsche Bahn AG and the Association of German Transport Undertakings (VDV) to enable rail passengers to use both long-distance and local transport services with just one ticket.
Benefits for BahnCard holders
A long-distance ticket (route of 100 km or more) which you have purchased with BahnCard discount entitles you to travel free on public transport (bus, S-Bahn, underground and tram) to the departure station and from the station to your final destination within the area of validity of the City-Ticket in more than 100 German cities.
BahnCard 100 holders are entitled to free use of all public transport services inside the designated areas of the participating cities. The City-Ticket is included in your BahnCard 100.
Requirements for the use of a City-Ticket:
You have to purchase a ticket with BahnCard discount, your train journey has to cover a distance of at least 100 kilometres, and your departure and destination points must be within the area of validity of the City-Ticket. The City-Ticket does not cost you an extra cent and will automatically be entered on your DB ticket when you travel to one of the participating cities. The addition of "+City" after the name of the station on your ticket shows that you are entitled to use the City-Ticket function.
