Traffic: 9-euro ticket successor: Lindner sees no funding

Finance Minister Christian Lindner sees no scope in the federal budget for further discount campaigns in local transport.

"There are no funds available in the financial planning for a continuation of the 9-euro ticket," said the FDP politician of the "Augsburger Allgemeine". "Every euro would have to be mobilized elsewhere through cuts."

In general, he is not convinced of a "free mentality à la unconditional basic income" in local public transport either. "Any tax subsidy for a ticket that doesn't cover the costs means redistribution.

People in rural areas who don't have a train station nearby and who rely on their cars would subsidize cheap local transport. I don't think that's fair."
