Frankfurt/Darmstadt (dpa/lhe) - With the start of nationwide sales of the 9-euro ticket, there is also great interest in Hesse. "In Hesse, the sale of cheap monthly tickets has started very well," said a spokeswoman for Deutsche Bahn on Monday at the request of the German Press Agency. Nationwide, around 50,000 tickets were sold in the early hours of the morning alone via the Deutsche Bahn channels.
The local transport provider HEAG mobilo, which started selling on Saturday, spoke of more than 2,000 tickets sold within 24 hours at its sales outlets in Darmstadt alone on Saturday. A spokesman said there was a lot of interest.
The online booking at the train was temporarily overloaded on Monday. The homepage said: "Dear customer, at the moment too many users are accessing our booking system at the same time. Please try again later."
The monthly card is supposed to be a reaction to the sharp rise in energy prices from June to August. The Bundestag gave the green light for this last Thursday and the Bundesrat on Friday. You can travel nationwide on all buses, trams, subways, suburban trains and local and regional trains.
