The Solution to a tight budget!

Students can save up to 50 % compared to regular fares throughout the region of Salzburg. If you compare the costs, cars don’t stand a chance!

Temporary information
From march 2020 on there is a new tariff system for students. Nearly all informations here are especially for the winter semester 2019/20.

Starting on January 1, 2020, a new era begins for the Salzburg Transport Association with the launch of a brand new tariff system. From this date on, StudentCARDs will no longer be valid simply for a special route or the City of Salzburg; they will serve as a network ticket for an entire region. You can find all information on myRegio tickets here: myRegio Tickets

Requirements to get a StudentCARD

  • You must be a degree (or “regular”) student at a college or university in the state of Salzburg. Unfortunately, non-degree (or “irregular”) students are not eligible for benefit here.
  • You must be under the age of 26 by the deadline of September 10, 2018.
  • Due to legal requirements we cannot make an exception if you do not fulfill the requirements.

For financial reasons we are currently not able to offer the StudentCARD for the Region of Berchtesgaden.

How to get your StudentCARD

  • The StudentCARD for the winter term is valid from September 10, 2019 to February 29, 2020.
  • The StudentCARD for the summer term is valid from March 01, 2020 to August 31, 2020.
  • You can only order your StudentCARD online. An official digital certification of enrollment (scan, pdf) of your university and a digital foto need to be provided online.
  • You only pay the sales price, which automatically takes all financial support into account.

Attention: A StudentCARD is non-transferable. You are entitled to unlimited travel during the period of time named above and throughout the listed zones, both shown on your StudentCARD.

Hints for the fare calculation
The fare results from the amount of zones you cross when you use buy and rail. With the online timetable information it is possible to get information on fares as well. Just type in the desired route and click the grey “i”-icon.

You live in Salzburg but study in Puch-Urstein. You want to travel this route, including the central zone. Hence, you need to pay the zones Puch, Elsbethen and Salzburg and add the central zone supplement. You use three zones for € 129.00 plus the central zone supplement, which is € 41.00. Therefore the price adds up to a total of € 170.00.

You can compare the price with the following tickets (for the same route): monthly pass (€ 77.00), annual pass (from € 599.00)

  • Concessions: Here you can find helpful information.
