Buying your Ticket
Looking for an overview of where and how to buy the ticket that is best for you?
If you want to take a dog, bicycle or large items of luggage with you, you will need a special ticket (Extrakarte). Find out here what to do. You can also find more detailed information in the tariff and transportation conditions of MDV (Central German Transport Network). By the way, wheelchairs, rollators and prams can always be transported free of charge with the Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe.
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
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.
Prams are transported free of charge unless they are used for a different purpose than for transporting small children, e.g. for luggage, animals, etc. In such cases, you must buy a special ticket (Extrakarte) in the necessary price category for each pram. Bike trailers and handcarts transporting children are transported free of charge.
There is also no charge for wheelchairs or rollators. Passengers dependent on orthopaedic aids, who require assistance with boarding and alighting, are requested to call us beforehand so we can provide assistance. Users of electric scooters and electromobiles should check the tariff and transportation conditions.
