Facts & Figures

In 2012 the VGN has commissioned a passenger survey. Based on the results of the survey the VGN calculates the prices of the tickets. The survey was designed to identify which tickets are used by students, so the VGN is able to calculate its income generated by students. This is the basis of all the following negotiations.
The Institute of Geography (Friedrich-Alexander University) conducted the Project studimobil in 2013 under the direction of Dr. Tim Elrick. It determined the moblility behaviour of students in Erlangen and Nuremberg. 

Current prices

In comparison with other cites, the current tickets, which can be used by students and apprentices, are very costly. The price of the Semesterwertmarke for four months within the fare zones 100 to 400 (Nuremberg, Erlangen, Fürth and Stein) for 268,60€ is the most expensive in Germany. Additionally you have to buy extra tickets during the semester break.
