About this app

Whether you want to travel by S-Bahn, tram or bus, the ticket app for the VRN (Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Neckar) transport association is ideal for you. Tickets are available until right before departure. You can also use the app to pinpoint the location of your chosen transport service or find out if there are any delays due to construction work.

An overview of options:

In-app ticket purchase
Every type of ticket for the VRN transport association is available in the app: single tickets, multi-journey tickets, day tickets, weekly tickets, monthly tickets, semester tickets and season tickets. You can pay by credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Amex), direct debit or PayPal. You can also buy tickets for someone else, such as a friend or child.

Season ticket
Under "VRN Abo" you can order the Deutschland-Ticket (valid from 01.05.2023) as a mobile ticket. The well-known subscriptions Rhein-Neckar-Ticket, Karte ab 60, MAXX, SuperMAXX, Job-Ticket, Jahreskarte and VRN JugendticketBW are also available here. You can also add a supplement for first class, a dog season ticket and bicycle season ticket.

Semester tickets
This option lets you buy a mobile ticket that is valid for a full semester. Your ticket is sent to your mobile phone immediately in the form of a digital pass, and you can access it any time via the "Tickets" function after purchase.

Integrated timetable information for the entire VRN transport association
The timetable information shows you connections between different stops or addresses within the VRN's catchment area. It is very easy to use as it works just like the DB Navigator. You can simply save frequently used connections as favorites.

Current departures
If you know the line and stop you want to use and need to see when the next departure is, "Check the next trains at your station" shows when the next services are due and includes information about possible delays.

Line agents
You often use public transport and want to know the latest information about your preferred route? The notification function uses push notifications to send you the details of delays, cancellations and disruptions. You can get information about specific connections or for a number of services on a given route. To make sure you can plan a journey properly, our system sends these bulletins until the issue is resolved. You can stop the receipt of information by tapping the pause button.

The ideal assistant if you want to use a bicycle or rental car to continue your journey after disembarking at a station, or if you simply want to see a map of your surroundings. You can also use this function to see your current location and the stops in your vicinity. You can choose between GoogleMaps or Openstreetmap when using the map function.

Network Maps
If you'd like an overview of the VRN's network of public transport services, simply have a look at the maps feature, which contains the most important network diagrams.

Construction Works
We are always working to upgrade the VRN's lines for our passengers. Construction work can lead to timetable changes, but you can easily check what lines are affected.

Getting better. However, after the last update the GPS takes a long time to update location.

Works mostly but unreliable. Issues with payments at times. Sometimes payment server is down causing trouble at last min. From yesterday it isnt accepting my saved card details stating card is invalid although nothing wrong with the card and have been using for months. App should have function to search by bus number, it doesnt show all buses

Hallo Ujjal, beim Ticketkauf ist eine Netzwerkverbindung erforderlich. Bei Verwendung von Lastschrift bitte auch die Adresse auf Aktualität prüfen. Unter dem Menüpunkt "Abfahrten" einfach Haltestelle eingeben und auf Symbol "Bus" klicken oder im Fahrplan unter Einstellungen (Icon "Zahnrad") bei Verkehrsmittel nur "Bus" aktiveren.

Completely useless: continuous errors when searching for station (which is necessary if you want to buy a ticket), displays every station except those in VRN area, outdated PayPal integration.
