Relief: Wissing convinces Lindner of a successor for a 9-euro ticket

In the debate about continuing the 9-euro ticket, Federal Transport Minister Volker Wissing insists on simplifying the tariff structures. "By buying so many tickets, people voted that it shouldn't stay like this," said the FDP politician on Wednesday on Deutschlandfunk, referring to the variety of tariff zones and transport associations.

He had convinced Finance Minister Christian Lindner that there had to be another, more modern ticket. "That's why we will do our utmost to ensure that the old tariff structures don't revert to the way they are now starting on September 1st."

Those are the conditions

For a successor to the 9-euro ticket, however, the structure of the ticket and its financing would first have to be clarified - and then the price. Under these conditions, the federal government is also prepared to contribute to the financing, said the Minister of Transport. "One cannot expect the federal government to simply put money on the table if the federal states themselves have no suggestions as to what the new ticket should look like."

The 9-euro ticket financed by the federal government was introduced on June 1 to relieve people of the high energy prices and to encourage people to switch to bus and train. Customers could use local and regional trains throughout Germany for 9 euros per month. According to industry information, around 52 million tickets were sold.
