  • Up to three children under the age of 6 may travel free of charge when accompanied by a person with a valid ticket.

  • Tickets need to be purchased for additional children under the age of 6.

  • They must not bother or endanger other passengers.

Our staff on the trains are responsible for ensuring the journey can take place with no dangers or complications for passengers. A dog may be prohibited from travelling. Our staff are experienced and able to assess situations well – their decisions must be respected. 


Bicycles may be transported free of charge in the means of transport intended for them: 

  • If the operational situation calls for it, transport company employees are authorised to prohibit the transport of bicycles.

  • There is no entitlement to take your bicycle.
