The Deutschlandticket student upgrade goes digital

Students at the University of Kassel can upgrade their semester ticket to a Deutschlandticket at low cost in the coming winter semester. The AStA of the University of Kassel and the mobility partners KVG and NVV have agreed on a digital way to do this.

Anyone who would like to use the Deutschlandticket student upgrade in the winter semester 2023/2024 can now apply at abo.kvg.de or abo.nvv.de. All that is required is a proof of eligibility, which is uploaded during the ordering process. The ticket can then be accessed digitally in the "NVV mobil" app.

The surcharge compared to the semester ticket, which students automatically receive and which is valid for the area of the North Hessian Transport Association as well as neighboring associations, will increase from 23.48 euros to 26.24 euros per month. With the additional amount of 2.76 euros, the AStA (Students Union) enables students without a Deutschlandticket to continue necessary trips in neighboring transport associations.

"This is important for students of cooperative study programs, for example, who need to reach Fulda. The basis for this is the existing AStA contracts with these transport associations," explained the chairman of the AStA, Sebastian Ehlers.

The President of the University of Kassel, Prof. Dr. Ute Clement, thanked those involved. All students benefited from this, "especially those who are starting their studies in Kassel this winter semester. They can thus plan to be favorably mobile even beyond the area of validity of the semester ticket."
