Monthly pass subscription
By acquiring a subscription of the Monthly pass you save round about 15 % compared to the price of twelve single Monthly passes. If you pay the entire amount for your annual pass at once, you will receive a further discount of 2 %. The total charge is simply debited to your account. You can choose between a freely transferable or a non-transferable personal pass. The non-transferable (personal) Monthly pass subscription is only valid in conjunction with an official ID. If you regularly travel on local and regional transport, the Deutschland ticket, which is valid throughout Germany and costs 49 euros per month, may also be worthwhile for you.

You can extend the Monthly pass subscription
- If you want to travel within more zones your pass actually allows to, you merely need a Single- or a 6 trip Single ticket for one zone (A, B or C). Here it is not important how many zones you cross. Example: your Monthly pass subscription 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 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 subscription (three stations by tram, five stations by bus) all you need is an additional Short trip ticket.
- All other persons, you take with your Monthly pass subscription and who travel within more zones your pass is valid for, also need a ticket each for one zone (A, B or C). An extension is also possible with a Day ticket for groups up to 5 persons for one zone (A, B or C).

Subscription start pass
If you apply for a new subscription, it takes a few days until your request is processed and you get the desired pass. The Subscription start pass allows subscribers to bridge the time from application to the start of the subscription period: it is currently issued in the GVH Customer Centre. The Subscription start pass is valid from midnight of the first day of validity until 05:00 a.m. of the last day of validity. The price depends on how many days must be bridged until the subscription starts. For each day only 1/30 of the future monthly subscription price will be charged.
