Tickets can be purchased at vending machines at subway and train stations, public transportation offices and on buses. You can plan your trip online.

Public transporation within Dortmund needs a ticket at price level A (Preisstufe A). The single fare ticket (Einzelticket) costs 2,50 EUR. It is valid for 90 minutes but must not be used as a round-trip ticket. If you need more than two trips per day and want to avoid any hassle with the complicated tariff regulations it is probably a good advice to purchase a day ticket (price level A) for 6,50 EUR.
