Educational transport; application for compensation

According to the Passenger Transportation Act, transport companies that issue season tickets to pupils, students and trainees on scheduled public transport are granted compensation upon application.



Upon application, the transport company receives compensation for the reduction in the price of tickets for trainees compared to the Everyman Ticket in accordance with the provisions of Section 45a PBefG and the Compensation Ordinance.

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

Another requirement is that the income from the trainees' transportation fees is not sufficient to cover the transport-specific costs and that the operator has applied for an adjustment of the transportation fees to the income and cost situation within a reasonable period of time.


The governments are responsible for the procedure. The application for compensation must be submitted in writing.
