The public transport pass (Semesterticket) was introduced in the winter semester 1999/2000 on the initiative of JMU student representatives. The pass is offered by Studentenwerk Würzburg and the local public transport providers represented by Verkehrsunternehmens-Verbund Mainfranken GmbH (VVM).
Currently, the public transport pass is €81.60.
The University of Würzburg is required to collect the fee for the public transport pass from all students who are enrolled in a degree programme and then forward the fee payments to VVM via Studentenwerk Würzburg.
On principle, all students - including those who are on leave of absence - are required to pay the fee for the pass when they enrol or re-enrol to continue their studies in the upcoming semester.
Who is eligible for exemption?
|Only those students who have a severe disability and are entitled to use public transport free of charge are exempt from the fee. They will need to demonstrate their eligibility for exemption by showing the supplement to their severely handicapped pass with the according token.|
|If you are eligible for exemption, please let us have a photocopy of your severely handicapped pass and token. Please submit that document to us together with your application for enrolment or, respectively, in sufficient time prior to the beginning of the re-enrolment period. If you fail to do so, we will not be able to grant you an exemption from the fee.|
In addition, students who are enrolled at two or more higher education institutions located in the area of validity of the public transport pass offered by Studentenwerk Würzburg and Verkehrsunternehmens-Verbund Mainfranken GmbH (VVM) are eligible for exemption from the fee for the public transport pass. This only applies to students who are enrolled at the University of Würzburg and the University of Music Würzburg (HfM) or the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (FHWS) - Campus Würzburg at the same time.
|If this applies to you, please let us have an enrolment certificate issued by the higher education institution at which you have already paid the fee. Please submit that document to us together with your application for enrolment or, respectively, in sufficient time prior to the beginning of the re-enrolment period.|
