Saxony: First day with the 9-euro ticket in Saxony without any problems

Leipzig (dpa / sn) - The start of the 9-euro ticket in Saxony started unspectacularly. "The morning rush hour in the buses and trams runs perfectly, actually as always," said the spokesman for the Dresden Transport Authority (DVB), Falk Loesch, on Wednesday morning. But there is still a buffer because there are still up to 15 percent fewer passengers than before the corona pandemic.

"It's a day like any other," said Christian Schlemper from Verkehrsverbund Oberelbe, who had taken the bus and tram himself in the morning. Customer service also reported nothing spectacular. However, Schlemper expected more passengers, especially on the weekends, who will use the 9-euro ticket for trips to Saxon Switzerland or the Lausitzer Seenland, for example.

The ticket is a reaction to the sharp rise in energy costs and is intended to serve as a relief measure. It is offered in June, July and August and is valid throughout Germany for journeys on buses, trams and regional trains in 2nd class. An extra ticket is issued for each month.
