Berlin’s Governing Mayor Franziska Giffey (SPD) is stepping up the pace with the announced local successor solution for the 9-euro ticket – and also wants to convince the neighboring state of Brandenburg of the idea.

“It is now important for us to get everyone around the table and discuss specific steps,” said the SPD politician on Tuesday after a Senate session. “It is clear that if we want to create a connecting ticket from October 1st to December in Berlin, we have to act very quickly.”

Therefore, a video switching conference with all those involved is already planned for this Thursday, including representatives of Brandenburg, the BVG, the S-Bahn and the Verkehrsverbund Berlin-Brandenburg (VBB). There it should be about the “sphere of action” of the temporary ticket financed from state funds, but also about the price.
