Welcome to our English language pages
Our foreign language pages provide you with all the important information you need for travelling by bus and rail on RMV services - from timetables right through to ticket purchases.
If you would like more extensive information on RMV’s products and services, we supply an overview of other content available in German only.
Separating panes between the driver and the passengers on the bus, increased cleaning intervals, ride-specific utilisation forecasts, obligation to cover one’s mouth and nose - these are just a few of the measures that contribute to the fact that passengers can feel safe and protected when travelling on public transport.
Important: Since 23 January, you may only use medical masks to cover your mouth and nose. These include surgical masks or virus-filtering masks complying with the FFP2, KN95 and N95 standards. These masks protect you better against the virus than simple cloth masks.
There is a fine of 50 Euro for those who do not meet the mask obligation.
This is how you can recognise certified masks
The certified green-blue foldable masks (surgical masks) need to bear a CE marking on the packaging.
Certified FFP2 masks include the CE marking in combination with the four-digit number of the certifying body, the FFP protection class, the EN norm, the name of the manufacturer and the item number.
Masks must be worn at the following locations
Based on the regulation passed by the Hessian state government, you must cover your mouth and nose
- on local buses and trains of public transport
- at the respective railway stations,
- at S-Bahn and U-Bahn (underground) stations,
- at tram stops,
- on platforms,
- at bus stops,
- at RMV mobility centres, RMV mobility info centres and other RMV customer centres.
All people from the age of 6 must wear a mouth and nose covering. Only people who are unable to wear a mouth and nose covering for health reasons are exempt from this regulation.
To protect staff and customers, some sales points in the RMV service area have reduced their capacity to sell tickets. As such, please try to use
to purchase your tickets.
