The South Tyrol government has updated its decision on public mobility fares. Only Mobilcard prices will be adjusted.
Prices for tourist tickets on the other hand will rise to a similar level as in the neighbouring state of Tyrol. This applies to all Mobilcard variants.
Mobile ticketing and Nightliner shuttle services
The fare regulations in force have been adjusted with regard to mobile ticketing, too: From 16 December 2022, many tickets are available to be purchased and checked in online on a smartphone. For Nightliner buses, a new provision makes shuttle services free of charge and accessible without a ticket from 17 December 2022.
Bicycle parking plus Park&Ride
“As an incentive for even more people to connect to the public transport system in environmentally friendly ways, we are putting a major focus on expanding our offers for cyclists,” Alfreider continued. At stations and transfer hubs across South Tyrol, there will be more opportunities to create covered bicycle parking spots and BikeBox facilities, which can be paid for using a Südtirol Pass.
With Park&Ride, a similar system for car parking was successfully launched last summer at the stations of Bressanone/Brixen and Brunico/Bruneck.
Another new feature is that children using school transport services will no longer require a so-called school pass card: In the future, school transport services can be used with abo+ tickets if the pupils are on the driver’s list.
