Students at Brandenburg and Berlin universities can now upgrade their existing, personal VBB Semesterticket to the Deutschlandticket with nationwide territorial validity on local public transport via a web app. The price results from the difference between the monthly ticket price for the Deutschlandticket and the monthly share for the semester ticket.

How do I get the ticket? Students receive a specific link to the RIDE Campus web app from their respective university. The upgrade is only sold via this link; it cannot be purchased directly from the S-Bahn Berlin.

These students receive information about getting a ticket when they enrol or when their university of choice notifies them about the start of their first semester.
