The VVO offers reduced fares and in some cases free travel for selected groups of people.
- People with disabilities
- Senior citizens
- School children, young people in training, students
- State and Federal Police, customs and Saxon Security
People with disabilities can, as laid down by the German Code of Social Law, Book IX, travel free of charge if they have a valid pass for the severely handicapped and the supplementary sheet of the pension office with the validation stamp with them during their journey. Rules for the free travel for the escorts of people with disabilities are also laid down in the German Code of Social Law, Book IX: the escort must be noted on the pass for the severely handicapped.
There is a bonus for all citizens aged 60 years or over: people in this age group can use the reduced fare for a single one-day card.
Children under the age of 6 and kindergarten groups travel for free. Children from the age of 6 up until the age of 14 can use all of the reduced fares. A customer card is required for travel passes.
School children 15 years and older, young people in training and students are only entitled to the reduced fare on travel passes. The prerequisite is a customer card that has been confirmed by the institution where the person is learning or in training and where the card has a passport photo of the person that has been affixed to the card in such a way that it cannot be removed. Further, the card must be filled out with all the relevant personal information in a form which cannot be removed from the card.
Officers of the Police of the Free State of Saxony and the Federal Police as well as those working for Saxon Security may travel free of charge when in uniform. The same applies to officers of the Czech police force when patrolling with the German police. This is only valid for the 2nd class on urban railway trains.
