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
The Job Ticket contract with ASEAG and AVV has been extended until December 31, 2023. Below you can find information on the online application process.
Who can acquire an AVV Job Ticket?
Basically all public servants, employees, and apprentices of RWTH may acquire an AVV Job Ticket.
Except for the following individuals:
- Student and enrolled scientific assistants
- Employees who are simultaneously enrolled and are allowed to use a Semester Ticket
- Disabled individuals with a valid pass who have a token for free rides on public transportation
- Public servants on parental leave except those who are still working with fewer hours during the legal period before the parental leave starts

- Chronically sick RWTH employees who are receiving benefits from the Job Center and those in partial retirement who are no longer employed at RWTH

- Visiting researchers, private lecturers, unbudgeted professors, and contract lecturers, if they do not have any other employment status or relationship with RWTH that authorizes them to acquire a Job Ticket, for example, wissenschaftliche Beamte or academic staff

Areas of Validity
The Job Ticket is valid in the second class of all of the buses and trains in the Aachener Verkehrsverbund, AVV for short. Outside the city of Aachen, the AVV encompasses the Aachen city region, the districts of Düren and Heinsberg, and many neighboring communities in the VRS area.
You can also go to neighboring counties with your Job Ticket on certain bus lines. An overview is available in the document AVV Areas of Validity.
You can use your ticket around the clock and during your free time. The ticket can be used as a family and group ticket during the week starting at 7pm and on the weekend and on federal holidays. On these days, an additional adult and up to three children under 15 years of age can travel with you free of charge. This does not apply to the AVV Job Ticket for apprentices.
The area of validity of the AVV Job Ticket can be expanded upon request:
- As a monthly subscription for bus rides that cross border areas in the three-country point
The price for the supplemental ticket is determined by the participating transportation associations.
Job ticket holdes can purchase so-called EinfachWeiterTickets (de) for individual rides into a neighboring Verkehrsverbund – a region outside the area of validity of the job ticket.
