School pass

Are you a student in grades 1 to 10 and live in the GVH tariff area? Than you receive a free School pass from your school if your way to school is more than 2 kilometres long.

The School pass is valid for three zones (ABC) and during the leisure time and school holidays (incl. summer holidays)!

You get the School pass:

  • If your way to school is more than two kilometres away from home
  • If you're not in the 11th grade yet und have not completed the lower secondary level yet

  • A passport photo for the customer card (only when applying for a new one)
  • A customer card. You will get it in the school secretariat
  • A current token. You get it in the school secretariat as well – for each school year you need a new one

  • The School pass must be filled out and signed
  • With every change or damage you need to return the pass to the school (place of issue). If you change school, you get a new customer card from the new school
  • If you forget to take your School pass, you need to buy a regular ticket and validate it
  • If you have lost your School pass or it was stolen, you have to report the loss immediately at school. There you will get a new one after ten days at a cost of 25 euros

The School pass is valid:

  • For three zones (ABC)
  • From the 1st day of the new school year until the first days of the following school year
