Ratings and Reviews
Can't buy ticket
There is a function to buy an online ticket but it doesn't work. When you click purchase the app just infinitely loads. Better off using the DB app.
Easy but only purchase just before departure
The App works fine and the ticket was cheaper than buying over Deutsche Bahn. However, VERY IMPORTANT to know that tickets can’t be bought in advance & must be used within 4 hours of purchase. This wasn’t totally clear to me, despite the „please mind“ and „ok“ that has to be clicked before purchase. So, I ended up buying a ticket the night before my trip that I couldn’t use. Thankfully, the VBB Mitarbeiter were helpful & friendly and following an email exchange, I was reimbursed for the unused ticket.
Buying ticket function is broken
The function to buy tickets is broken. The app wants to send a “pin” to you via SMS, but it sends it to non existent numbers for non German phones. Instead of being secure, it is broken. Use the BVG app instead, at least you can buy tickets on it.
