If you are traveling with a dog, bicycle or large items of luggage, you will need an extra ticket. Read here what you need to consider when taking them with you. By the way: wheelchairs, walking frames and baby carriages always travel free of charge with LVB.

Click here to find out when you need a special ticket (Extrakarte):

Small dogs and small animals in suitable containers travel for free on Leipzig's busses, trams and city trains. This also applies to dogs accompanying disabled people (assistance dogs). If you are travelling with a dog that is not in a container, simply purchase a special ticket (Extrakarte) in the necessary price category.

For everyone's safety

  • Dogs which are not in a transport box must wear a muzzle and be kept on a short leash. This does not apply to guide dogs for the blind or assistance dogs.
  • Dogs and small animals can travel with passengers but not on the seats.
  • All other 'animal friends' must be in suitable containers.

Folded bikes in bike bags and children's bicycles and tricycles may be transported free of charge. To transport any other bikes, simply purchase a special ticket (Extrakarte) in the necessary price category.


We can only transport bikes and bike trailers if there's enough room on the bus, tram or city train. We therefore recommend you to avoid peak travel times.

If you have a valid ticket, you don't need an additional ticket for your hand luggage or suitcase in our busses, trams and city trains. But you do need a special ticket in the necessary price category for anything you cannot carry yourself, especially bulky baggage and objects.


Make sure your luggage is secured – you will find enough space in our vehicles in the luggage and bicycle areas provided.
