Refund Period

The refund for the Summer semester 2020 must be submitted by May 18, 2020, at the latest.

What is the semester ticket?

The semester ticket is printed on the study chip and is paid automatically with the semester fees when enrolling or re-registering. It allows you to use all regional trains, S-Bahn (suburban railway), underground, trams, and buses in the entire area of the Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund (RMV).

When is the ticket valid?

  • In the winter semester, the semester ticket is valid from October 1
  • In the summer semester, the semester ticket is valid from April 1

The AStA semester ticket is valid for the entire semester and even one month prior to the beginning of the semester, i.e. in the summer semester from March 1 to September 30 at the earliest and in the winter semester from September 1 to March 31 at the earliest. The validity period therefore always extends over seven months. The AStA semester ticket can therefore also be used to look for accommodation or to attend preliminary courses before the official class start.

The ticket is printed on the study chip.
You pay for it at the beginning of the semester with your registration.

What is the purpose of the semester ticket?

“In an effort to meet the social and economic needs of students, and to ensure that students are mobile by environmentally friendly means of transport, RMV and AStA have concluded the following agreement: […]”.

is stated in the preamble to the agreement between AStA and RMV. The AStA, through the choice of students and its position as a public corporation, has the possibility of concluding a contract of this kind, which brings considerable financial benefits to students. It can only be so cheap because all the students automatically buy the ticket. True to the motto: “One for all – all for one!” Since the ticket is used by students with varying degrees of intensity, they all pay more or less the average price. Even for those who use the ticket only rarely, there is a cost advantage over buying single tickets, even if the use is low. In addition, the ticket is subsidised by compensation payments for trainee transport, making the amount payable even lower.

Validity of the semester ticket

The semester ticket is valid for an entire semester. Any number of trips are permitted within the printed validity period. The ticket can already be used one month prior to the start of the semester. This means that you can use the ticket for travel for a total of seven months.

Where can I travel with the semester ticket?

The semester ticket is valid on regional trains, S-Bahn, U-Bahn, trams, and buses throughout the RMV area, as well as in the transition areas of the VRN and NVV. You can use it not only in Frankfurt, but you can ride within almost all of Hesse as often as you like.

The following map shows the area where the ticket is valid with the most important railway stations. All stations that mark the last valid stop are also shown. The validity ends at these points and a connecting ticket must be purchased. Just click on the map and download complete map in PDF form.
