Hamburger Verkehrsverbund (HVV, Hamburg Public Transport Association))
As of December 15, 2019, the HVV tariff will be introduced or expanded on most rail routes in the Lower Saxon districts of Cuxhaven, Rotenburg (Wümme), Heidekreis and Uelzen.
For our route from Cuxhaven to Hamburg Hbf this means specifically:
HVV season tickets are now valid across the board. You can travel from Cuxhaven via Stade and Buxtehude to Hamburg and back with the HVV season tickets (weekly, monthly and subscription cards, Proﬁ tickets).
The HVV semester ticket is excluded. This is still only valid until ring E. Students who also want to use the rings F-H must purchase an HVV ticket for students. It is sufficient if the SemesterTicket is presented. Proof of eligibility is not required in these cases. The supplementary student season ticket must be valid from the last stop in the scope of the semester ticket.
Between Hemmoor and Hamburg, the HVV tariff also applies to single, day and group tickets. The previous transition tariffs in the HVV and the bus / rail cards along the railway line are no longer applicable. They are replaced by the HVV tariff for season tickets.
Important note: The HVV tickets in rings F, G and H are not valid on buses in regional and city traffic from and to the train stations. A separate ticket is required for this, which can be purchased directly from the bus driver.
