Buy tickets

Change of tariffs from 1 April 2023:

Generally, all tickets bought for the old tariff that have not yet been validated stay valid until 30 June 2023. Passed that date and until 30 September 2023, those tickets can be changed into the new tariff for a surcharge.

You receive more information on all tickets and prices at the Stadtwerke Jena customer centre and via the VMT-service hotline at 0361 19449.

Are you spontaneous and want to buy a ticket quickly on the go via your mobile phone? Or do you prefer to buy your ticket in advance? Perhaps you value personal advice before pursuing a ticket? For every passenger, we have the right offer!
