Information on the eTicket RheinMain

Monthly tickets for pupils and apprentices on the eTicket RheinMain are issued by the Verkehrsgesellschaft Frankfurt (VGF) ticket machines and the Offenbacher Verkehrsbetriebe (OVB) sales offices. Only the tickets for the RMV cross-network fare zones are still issued on paper. This means:

  • You must have a smartcard and eligibility for using the ticket charged at the training rate must be stored on it. If eligibility corresponds to the ticket selection, the monthly ticket for the RMV area is solely issued as an electronic ticket. If the selection does not correspond, a ticket cannot be purchased.
  • Mixing eTicket and paper format (eligibility on the eTicket and monthly ticket as a token or vice versa) is not possible.

The monthly ticket charged at the training rate for the RMV area and the cross-network fare zones is solely issued as a token on paper by the Deutsche Bahn AG (DB) ticket machines. This means:

  • You require a correspondingly valid passenger ID card on paper.
  • Mixing eTicket and paper format (eligibility on the eTicket and monthly ticket as a token or vice versa) is not possible.

Reduced fares
