Tickets overview

The RVF network area: on the move in the city and beyond

The RVF network area covers the city of Freiburg and the districts of Breisgau-Hochschwarzwald and Emmendingen. Monthly tickets and season tickets are always valid for the whole network area. The last rail stations within the RVF network are Herbolzheim to the north, Auggen to the south, Breisach to the west and Löffingen-Unadingen to the east. From these stations onwards a suitable additional ticket must be purchased, for example a supplementary ticket or badisch24.

The RVF fare zones: travel through three zones on a single ticket

The RVF fare zones

In the RVF network area there are only three fare zones for single trips: A, B and C determine the fare when purchasing single tickets, the 2x4 trip ticket and PunkteKarte (points ticket) as well as for the REGIO24.

Price levels

You are charged for each zone that you travel through, which means that you pay for either one, two or three zones. This is what the price levels are based on. A journey across the whole network (three zones) corresponds to price level 3. Of course, you are only charged once per journey for each fare zone even if you travel through the same zone multiple times. The table shows the relationship between fare zone and price level.

Validity periods

Single tickets and multi-trip tickets (2x4 trip tickets and point tickets) are valid from the time of purchase or validation, and the period of validity increases with the price level. This means that you can change during your journey or interrupt your journey without having to buy a new ticket. The validity period of the ticket only applies to travel in one direction. Return travel and detours are not permitted and require a new ticket.
