What’s New

Version 1.27.4

The 9-Euro-Ticket can no longer be purchased for fellow riders.
Reason: The name of the account holder appears on all tickets. This means that you would always have to travel together. This is unlikely and impractical.
We recommend that your friends and family create their own account. Then everyone can travel alone with the 9-Euro-Ticket.

Best public transit app

This is the best and easiest public transit app I’ve used.
Wish only some of the interactions and network requests were quicker. The animation is cute but too long

Developer Response ,

Hi, thanks for your feedback! We totally agree with you and are already working hard to improve performance💛

Fined 60 eur because of this app

I habitually buy 4-ticket packs, and in the last year the transactions have gotten longer and longer (1-2 minutes of the spinner interaction - I might as well buy physical tickets) and nowadays even fail. Today I entered the train trusting that this was about to complete and it failed (all on wifi), and I was on a train with fare control and was given a 60 euro ticket. The app says that I have purchased tickets using a past credit card transaction, but no record of this visible in the app, nor any tickets are visible in app. To emphasize: this was all while being connected to bvg wifi.

The only conclusion is that using this service in its current state incurs serious risk of getting fined, not to mention inconvenience because of the length of the transaction. This service used to work well but as of now is effectively broken and should not be used for day to day tickets, and I’m probably out 60 eur because of it.

Developer Response ,

Hi, we are sorry to hear that of course and our colleagues are constantly working on the performance of the app. At the moment we can only advise that you delete the app and download it again as this clears any old cache. Please note that you have to ensure that you are in possession of a valid ticket before entering public transport.

new version has issues ,

Love the App, some new bugs

Usually love this app. Seems the introduction of the 9€ ticket has also introduced some edge cases & bugs. I receive an error that I cannot purchase the monthly pass for May due to existing tickets in my wallet. However when I view my wallet there are no active or pending tickets which need to be used.
Eager to purchase the new monthly pass!

Also, each app update requires manual update then sign in again. Would be great to have background f updates & keep tokens valid for mobile devices!

Developer Response ,

Hi, please make sure you've activated automatic updates within the Settings of you App Store app. This is not a setting of our BVG Ticket-App. The Login Token should be valid for one year, we are currently looking at the problem.

Sorry for the other error message you've seen. We can only assume that the connection to our background system was not good enough at that moment.
