New price levels in Frankfurt and in Wiesbaden and its surroundings

Attractive prices in Frankfurt

Since December 2018, short journeys outside Frankfurt's city limits have become more cost-effective. This has become possible due to a finer classification of the fare zones and the introduction of two new price levels 30 and 40.

This also applies to journeys between the following cities or municipalities in the surrounding areas, mostly still differentiated according to individual suburbs, and Frankfurt:

  • in the Hochtaunus district: Bad Homburg, Oberursel, Schmitten, Steinbach
  • in the Main-Kinzig district: Hanau, Maintal
  • in the Main-Taunus district: Bad Soden, Eschborn, Hattersheim, Kriftel, Liederbach, Schwalbach, Sulzbach
  • in the city/district of Offenbach: Mühlheim, Neu-Isenburg, Offenbach; in addition, for routes outside Hanau: Seligenstadt, Hainburg and Mainhausen
  • in the Wetteraus district: Bad Vilbel.

In order to save money, the station or the suburb/district or the fare zone number of the suburb/district must be specified in detail. The correct selection of the destination is also important in order to ensure that you do not accidentally become a fare dodger. Because if you enter a nearby destination in Frankfurt but travel beyond it into Frankfurt, your ticket will no longer be valid. Passengers can easily get information about the price from A to B with integrated information about the fares by entering the start and end station in the connection information fields in the RMV app as well as at ticket vending machines.

IMPORTANT: Day, weekly, monthly and annual tickets shall no longer be automatically valid from outside Frankfurt for any desired destination selection in Frankfurt for the entire Main fare zone Frankfurt (fare zone number 5000) including fare zone Airport (fare zone number 5090). If you would like your ticket to be valid in the entire city area including the airport, please inform the sales staff about the same or enter the destination no. "5000" into the vending machine. Due to the larger territorial validity, these season tickets are only available at the common price levels 4 or 5.

Those who have a weekly, monthly or annual ticket until one of the new fare zones in Frankfurt and would like to travel beyond it can purchase a connecting ticket.
