Educational transportation; application for compensation services.

According to the Passenger Transportation Act, transportation companies that issue time tickets to schoolchildren, students and trainees on regular public transportation are granted compensation upon application.


The transport companies receive a compensation payment in accordance with § 45a PBefG for the reduction for schoolchildren and trainees in local public transport.

Compensation is paid for 44 percent of the difference between the revenue from the reduced tickets and the average transport-specific costs, which is calculated on the basis of the criteria set out in the Compensation Ordinance.


Upon application, the transport company receives the compensation for the reduction of tickets for trainees compared to the Everyman Tickets according to the provisions of § 45a PBefG and the Compensation Ordinance.

The transport operator must be a permit holder or operator on the line in local public transport according to § 42 PBefG or in a regular service according to § 43 No. 2 PBefG.

In addition, it is a prerequisite that the revenue from the transport charges of the trainees is not sufficient to cover the transport-specific costs and that the transport operator has applied for the adjustment of the transport charges to the revenue and cost situation within a reasonable period of time.


The governments are responsible for the procedure. The request for compensation must be made in writing.


The application must be submitted by May 31 of the following year.
