Very useful compared to buying the physical ticket most of the time, especially when I have the monthly ticket, I am less likely to forget the ticket if its on my phone. But the problem is the loading time and purchasing has too many kinks. Sometimes it takes over 10 to 15min to complete a purchase, making me miss my ride out of fear of getting a ticket because the app does not work. I would work on making the process smoother and better explanation to the rules of each tickets.

Hi Natasha, our colleagues are already checking why the activation sometimes takes too long. What may help is to use only mobile data or wi-fi during the process of buying. What do you mean by "better explanation to the rules"? There is a small "i" icon at each ticket which explains the most important information in regard to this ticket

BVG will steal your money and accuse you off being the thief. I tried to use a ticket and there was an error. The QR code didn't show in the app. I didn't want to get a fine, so I used another ticket and emailed BVG to ask for a refund on the first one. They emailed me back accusing me of trying to steal a ticket. Totally awful service for an honest customer trying to resolve a minor issue with the app. If people can't trust that apps are supported, Germany will remain in the stone age.

Don't buy the 4 trip ticket. This option allows you to buy 4 single tickets in one go all in your name. However the app automatically validates all 4 as soon as you purchase the ticket and they all expire 2 hours later. We ended up buying 8 tickets for 2 people for 20 euro instead of paying 6.40 if we had just bought single tickets.

Hi, that isn't correct. When buying a 4-trip ticket 1 ticket will become valid immediately, all 4 will only be actived when you press on the + button before, it then also says "Buy & use 4". If you press the - (minus) button before a purchase you can buy without activating any ticket. Please send us an email, then we will see what we can do for you
