The solidarity fee and the travel entitlement with a student ID

  • Monday to Friday from 6 pm to 6 am the following day
  • Saturday, Sunday, on public holidays and on 24 and 31 December, without time restrictions
  • Entitlement to travel within the entire MVV network

  • Travel entitlement is valid from the first day to the last day of the respective semester (example: Tech. Univ. Munich – from 01 Oct. 2015 to 31 Mar. 2016)

Travelling within the MVV network with a student ID

  • You are entitled to travel within the MVV network if you have a valid student ID with the MVV logo printed on it, as well as a valid official photo ID. The valid student ID together with an official photo ID count as the ticket. They must always be brought along when using MVV public transport, and must be shown to ticket inspectors upon request.
  • When travelling before or after the time period of validity with a student ID, you must buy an additional ticket for the respective zone or an additional season ticket.
  • If you do not have your valid student ID and/or official photo ID on hand to show the ticket inspectors upon request, but are able to hand this proof in within one week of the ticket inspection, the fine is reduced to 7 euros.

The IsarCard Semester – 24/7 affordable travel within the entire network
