Regional public transportation ticket

Students of the University of applied science Nordhausen can use the semester ticket from march the 1st the train rout network of the Verkehrsbetriebe Nordhausen GmbH. The valid current student identification card can be used as ticket.

Area of validity:
The semester ticket is valid for all forms of transport offered by the town bus and tram lines within tariff zone 1 of Öffentlicher Personennahverkehr Nordhausen (public transport provider for Nordhausen) (except line 10 of the Harzer Schmalspurbahn GmbH between Nordhausen/Bahnhofsplatz and Ilfeld/Neanderklinik). This excludes student identification cards marked with 'kein Semesterticket' ('no semester ticket').

Train ticket

The train ticket is valid in trains of regional transportation (RE, RB) on all routes of the DB Regio up to the last station of the according train in Thuringia (Train rout network plan).

The semester ticket is also valid for the following regional transportation:

  • Abellio Rail
  • Erfurter Bahn
  • Südthüringen Bahn
  • Vogtlandbahn

Exempted are the following routes and trains:

  • trains of excursion traffic and special traffic
  • on the route Obstfelderschmiede – Cursdorf der Oberweißbacher Berg und Schwarzatalbahn (KBS 563)
  • on the route Ilmenau Bf – Bahnhof Rennsteig der Erfurter Bahn GmbH (KBS 566)
  • Nordhausen – Eisfelder Talmühle (HSB)
  • on the route Eisenach - Gerstungen.

As long as the bike transport is free for all passengers in the regional trains, this also applies for the train ticket. Students, who have not received a student identification card from their university, or have received a student identification card that does not provide the usual discounts, do not receive a DB Regio train ticket through the university and therefore do not have any right to use the public transportation. This especially applies to guest and side students or students of long distance- and online courses of study.

The semester ticket is always valid until the last train stop in Thuringia. When an adjoining regional day ticket (Länder-Ticket Bayern, Niedersachsen, or Hessen) is purchased for the onward journey, the semester ticket is valid up until the state border (regional day tickets are also valid up until the border of Thuringia). In Thuringia the university institute and Studierendenwerk card thoska is valid as a travel ticket (depending on the institute, a paper student ID stating Semesterticket is also valid).

  • handicapped students, who by the law for the severely handicapped in the 9th Book of the Social Security Statute book Studierende, (SGB IX), are entitled to financial support and can provide evidence thereof
  • Students, who are currently in a semester on leave (Attention! Repayment is for the semester fees completely)
  • Students, who are staying at least 21 weeks outside of Thuringia, especially within the framework of their final thesis paper, a semester abroad or an internship semester.

According to the fee regulations of the Studierendenwerk, the corresponding applications must be submitted to the Studierendenwerk by the day before the beginning of the semester. Please use the appropriate refund-form for your university location .
