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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Ratings and Reviews
Where are the month-long tickets? I downloaded the app for the sole purpose of purchasing them and I only found out by chance that they’re hidden in the trip planning instead of together with the other tickets in the tickets tab! Probably a big reason for many low ratings.
I haven’t used it much but I can tell a few things from poking around. This app has a lot of data jammed into one screen and that makes the elements tiny. You can use the bottom and side tab to navigate to the same things which is redundant. The app tries to be everything at once. Simple is better. It’s a decent app overall but VRN e tariff has a better user experience and UI design.
Also the Abo tab isn’t translated into English (yet?)
I have been using it for a while it’s good because it’s in english
Leider seit den Deutschlandkarte sind Züge nicht angezeigt in den App. Heute Abend zum Beispiel, ich sitze auf ein Zug Von Mannheim HBF nach Kaiserslautern HBF der um 21:37 am 13.07.23. Was ist mit der App jetzt los?
