The Price Levels

The basis for the fare calculation in the region covered by the transport association is the tariff zones, tariff cells and short trip tariffs. As a rule a tariff zone comprises a city or several small cities/communities. Every tariff zone is made up of one or more cells ("Waben"). Every connection within the VRR area is allocated to a price level. In addition to the short trip tariff, there are four price levels A (which is separated in A1/A2 und A3), B, C and D. Children under the age of six always travel free of charge and must always be accompanied. For children aged between six and under 15 the reduced ticket prices shown in the respective price lists apply.

In Oberhausen you need to buy a A2-level ticket.
