New company ticket

Your company ticket from 1 September 2019

Not interested in traffic jams and searching for parking spaces? Want to arrive on time and without stress? Want to invite someone on a tour after work? And get all of this cheaper through your company? Then the BVG company ticket is the right choice for you:

  • up to 38% savings
  • from 5 employees
  • tax deductible
Advantages

From 1 September 2019, you will be able to get the BVG company ticket if at least 5 of your employees take part and if you as an employer have signed a company ticket agreement with us. With the company ticket, your employees save up to 38% compared to the standard VBB Umweltkarte subscription, whilst still using it in the same way - the only difference is that the tickets are no longer transferrable. You can use all the Verkehrsverbund Berlin Brandenburg (VBB) public transport facilities and your chosen fare zones as much as you like and take plenty of things with you. The exact conditions of carriage can be found here.
In addition there are a lot of benefits at more than 30 BVG partners for theatre and restaurant visits, sporting events, concerts and much more - just show your BVG company ticket when you pay.
As of 1 January 2019, subsidies for tickets and company tickets are no longer defined as taxable wages for you as the employer and thus no longer provide a pecuniary advantage. Subsidies for the use of public transport between home and work are thus tax-exempt, if they are provided in addition to payable wages. The tax concession also applies to the private use of the company ticket. For more details, please contact your tax advisor.

Fares

From 1 September 2019 the new company ticket will be available with even more attractive conditions. Depending on how much you as an employer contribute per employee per month, your employees save up to 38% compared to a VBB Umweltkarte subscription. As a basic principle, the employer has to contribute at least EUR 10.00 per employee per month towards the company ticket. The BVG then grants an additional discount of EUR 4.00 per month. If you, as an employer, contribute EUR 15.00 or more per month, the BVG even gives your employees a discount of EUR 8.00 on top of that. Since your contributions are tax free as of 1 January 2019, it's worthwhile for everyone involved.

As before, your employees can easily select their desired fare zones, depending on where they want to go. The different prices can be found in the table below.

Frequently Asked Questions

We would like to conclude a company ticket agreement for our company or authority. What are the requirements and what do we need to do?
The new company ticket will be available from 1 September 2019. To apply, you, the employer, must have a company ticket agreement with us for at least 5 participants. Sounds good? Then write us an e-mail at neuesfirmenticket@bvg.de, giving us your company name and address, the name of a contact with contact details, the number of participants and your desired starting date. We will get back to you in good time before the start of the new company ticket.

We have concluded a BVG company ticket agreement. What do our employees have to do to get a company ticket?
If you as an employer have a BVG company ticket agreement, there are two ways for your employees to apply for a company ticket:

  • digital: you or your staff can conveniently log in here, fill in the application form, upload your photo and send it
  • analogous: your employees can pick up the application for the company ticket and the privacy policy in your personnel department, fill it in and hand it in there together with a photo. After the personnel department has stamped and signed the application, they need to send it to us by post at Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe AöR, Aboservice - FVM-V4, iPlz 43340, Holzmarktstraße 15-17, 10179 Berlin

The requested company tickets are then either sent to the company or straight to your employee’s home address.

My employees already have another subscription but would like to switch to the BVG company ticket. How does that work?
Therefor we need two things:

  1. Please send us the employee’s signed, informal cancellation with a request for a goodwill cancellation due to the change to the company ticket, stating the previous contract number. You can do this by email or by post.
  2. At the same time, we need a new application for the BVG company ticket which is authorised and signed by you as the employer. You can also send this to us either via our portal or by post to Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe AöR, Aboservice – FVM-V4, iPlz 43340, Holzmarktstraße 15-17, 10179 Berlin.
