AVV Job Ticket


RWTH has been offering its employees the AVV Job Ticket since 2011. AVV Job Tickets are discounted transit passes for employees at companies or institutions. The Job Ticket aims to make using public transportation more attractive and reduce the use of personal vehicles.



The job ticket contract with ASEAG and AVV has been extended for the period July 1, 2019 to December 31, 2020. Below you can find information on the online application process and on current job ticket prices.
