New ticketing system

The switch to the new südtirolmobil ticketing system is already in full swing.

During this transition, different conditions of use apply to different tickets. For Südtirol Pass holders, nothing changes – except for top-ups on buses during a short period of time.

Top tip: Mobile tickets are always a great solution! If you buy your tickets and check in online using the südtirolmobil app, you no longer need ticket machines or validation devices – you’ll already have a valid ticket in your pocket.

Transition period: frequently asked questions

Which ticket can I use?

You can use any contactless ticket:

  • Südtirol Pass, Euregio Family Pass, Südtirol Pass abo+, Südtirol Pass 65+: (Almost) nothing changes. There’s only one exception: Until autumn 2023, it will not be possible to top up your Südtirol Pass or Euregio Family Pass on buses in South Tyrol. Top-ups are available online and at any südtirolmobil ticket office, but the easiest way to pay for your journeys is on a “post-paid” basis using SEPA direct debit.
  • Mobilcards: Contactless Mobilcards can be checked in as before.

Other tickets:

  • Pre-paid cards: Pre-paid cards are no longer available since 1 August 2023. Old cards with unused credit can be returned at some südtirolmobil sales points within one year since they were last used. Any remaining credit will be refunded.
  • Single tickets:
  • Group tickets: not available until further notice.
  • Guest Pass: Simply show your ticket at the ticket inspector’s request.
  • Mobilcards with a magnetic stripe: Simply show your ticket at the ticket inspector’s request.
  • Day passes for urban buses in Bolzano/Bozen and Merano/Meran: only available through the südtirolmobil app. Day passes cannot be bought on board or from südtirolmobil ticket offices.
  • Euregio 2 Plus: available through the südtirolmobil app and in südtirolmobil ticket offices. Euregio 2 Plus passes cannot be bought on board.
New ticket validation devices: how to check in a contactless ticket

If your ticket has a contactless symbol, hold it in front of the ticket validation device sensor showing the same symbol.
