The AzubiTicket is for apprentices, BuFDis (Federal Volunteer Service), FSJler (Voluntary Social Year), FÖJler (Voluntary Ecological Year), master students according to the Upgrading Training Assistance Act (Aufstiegsfortbildungsförderungsgesetz) or civil servant candidates of the lower and intermediate civil service.

Those who can present recognition of an introductory qualification year (EQJ) lasting at least twelve months within the meaning of § 26 of the Vocational Training Act can also use an AzubiTicket. For shorter EQJs, we recommend the MonatsTicket Azubis/Schüler as a ticket.

In principle, the training must be recognised and must continue for at least twelve months. Training and duration must be certified by the training company via order form.

The AzubiTicket can still be purchased even if the apprenticeship is already running. The only condition is that the training continues for at least twelve months and is certified by the training company.

If the training ends prematurely, the AzubiTicket must be returned. In addition, the difference to a JobTicket in the optional model must be paid back to the respective transport company per month used.
