Monthly pass education

Normally the training company is not "just around the corner". But most of the training companies and vocational schools are easy to reach by bus, tram and train. With the Monthly pass education you are mobile within the entire GVH tariff area. Apprentices up to and including 22 years of age can also use the Youth Pass. It costs only 15 euros per month and is valid in all three tariff zones (A, B and C) of the GVH. It can therefore be a cheaper alternative to a Monthly pass education. Free customer card necessary.

More information

  • In order to apply for a Monthly pass education you need a passport photo for the customer card, a customer card, available at the GVH Service Centre or the GVH Customer Centre and an authorisation card that must be filled out by the school secretariat or the training company.
  • The authorisation card is available in the GVH Customer Centre, the GVH Service and Sales Centres and as a download on this site.

You can extent the Monthly pass education

  • If you want to travel within more zones your pass actually allows to, you merely need a Single- or a 6 trip ticket for one zone (A, B or C). Here it is not important how many zones you cross. Example: your Monthly pass education is valid for zone C but you want to get to the main station Hanover in zone A. Although you cross zone B and A, an extension with a Single- or a 6 trip Single ticket for one zone (A, B or C) is enough
  • If you make several journeys in other zones on one day, you can in this case buy a Day ticket or 6 trip Day ticket for one zone (A, B or C).
  • For short journeys in excess of the scope of validity of your Monthly pass education (three stations by tram, five stations by bus) all you need is an additional Short trip ticket

Not the right ticket?
Maybe one of these offers will suit you:

  • Youth pass

    With the Youth pass (up to the age of 22) you can travel extremely favourably within the entire GVH tariff area (ABC). But you must be pupil (primary school and lower and upper secondary school) and also not entitled to use free transport because of the School pass or you are not carrying out a voluntary service (FSJ / FÖJ / FWJ / BFD). The pass is also valid in your free time and during school holidays. Apprentices (all part time apprentices of vocational schools up to the age of 22) can also use the Youth pass for 15 euros per month. Furthermore, a free and valid customer card is required.
  • Monthly pass education subscription

    If you subscribe to a Monthly pass education subscription, you can reach your training place and vocational school twelve months long by bus, tram or train. In doing so you save a lot of money: the Monthly pass education subscription is significantly less expensive than twelve regular Monthly passes education. Apprentices up to and including 22 years of age can also use the Youth Pass. It costs only 15 euros per month and is valid in all three tariff zones (A, B and C) of the GVH. It can therefore be an inexpensive alternative to a subscription.
  • Monthly pass education subscription Regional tariff

    You are an apprentice and reach your training place by train – not only in the region but beyond? In this case you should decide on a Monthly pass education subscription Regional tariff. In doing so, you can not only use suburban and many regional trains – you can as well use all buses and trams within the GVH tariff area.
