Senior pass

Have you reached the age of 60, are no longer working and want to stay mobile in the Hanover region at an affordable price? In this case the Senior pass is exactly what you need. You can get the Senior pass subscription if you have reached the age of 60, are no longer working and receive a retirement pension from a social insurance agency or a pension from a pension fund or if you are in a non-work phase of a pre-retirement part-time arrangement.

More information

Please note that the Senior pass is only valid in conjunction with a customer card.

For the Senior pass you need:

  • A passport photo for the customer card
  • A customer card which, once applied for, is valid indefinitely
  • Prior to the issue of a customer card, you need to demonstrate your entitlement for the use of a Senior pass by the pension approval certificate or the certificate from the pension fund (you can black out all data that is not relevant for the proof, in particular the pension amount and its composition as well as bank details, if applicable)
  • If you are 67 or older, it is sufficient to show your pension certificate
  • If you are in a non-work phase of a pre-retirement part-time arrangement, you will need proof by your employer or your employer's employer
