Bavaria: Electronic rail tariff extended to transport association

Munich/Regensburg (dpa/lby) - With a uniform electronic tariff, you can now travel from Munich to Regensburg. The "Swipe Ride" pilot project has been expanded from Munich to the Regensburger Verkehrsverbund (RVV), the Ministry of Transport in Munich announced on Monday. The offer makes the sometimes complicated search for the right ticket superfluous, explained Minister of Transport Christian Bernreiter (CSU): Instead, you can board the bus or train, check in and out using a smartphone app - and the fare will be calculated automatically and debited from your account.

A year ago, "Swipe Ride" was started as a model test in the Munich Transport Association (MVV). Now you can also use it in the RVV or when traveling from one network to another. The project is a first step towards a nationwide electronic tariff, said MVV Managing Director Bernd Rosenbusch. According to the Ministry of Transport, the offer is aimed primarily at occasional drivers for whom a ticket subscription is not worthwhile.

The Munich transport and tariff association (MVV), the transport association Greater Ingolstadt (VGI) and the Regensburg transport association (RVV) as well as the railway companies DB Regio, agilis, Bayerische Regiobahn and Länderbahn are involved in the project. According to the ministry, the Free State of Bavaria is supporting the “eTarif in the Donau-Isar model region” project with around 500,000 euros.
