Yearly ticket for university students in South Tyrol, Tyrol and Trentino
The Euregio Ticket Students pass is available to students enrolled at a university or equivalent higher educational institution anywhere in the Euregio territory. For a fixed annual fee, this personalised electronic ticket offers unlimited and flexible use of public transport in all of South Tyrol, Tyrol and Trentino – all you need to remember is that the rules may vary slightly according to which of the three parts of the cross-border region you are travelling in.
In terms of validity and usage, Euregio student passes issued in South Tyrol and used within the südtirolmobil network are subject to the same rules as Südtirol Pass abo+ passes: Simply remember to check in before every journey. In Tyrol (A) and in Trentino (I), with a few exceptions, you only need to show the QR code printed on the pass at the request of a ticket inspector.
The annual subscription fee is EUR 320. There are no additional costs for issuing a new ticket.
Eligible students who already have a Südtirol Pass abo+ subscription can - within 8 months from date of issue or renewal - simply request a Euregio Ticket Students by paying an additional EUR 170. The ticket can then be used anywhere in the Euregio territory, with the annual validity of the original Südtirol Pass abo+ ticket remaining in place.
In South Tyrol, Euregio Ticket Students passes can be used on all bus and train journeys within the südtirolmobil network. Please note that they are not valid on long-distance or high-speed trains (EC/EuroCity, Freccia, Italo, Railjet etc.). Much like with the Südtirol Pass abo+ subscription, in your user account you can activate an optional function to pay for additional services: That way, you can also use your pass to pay for Nightliner bus journeys and for transporting a pet or a bike.
In Tyrol, Euregio Ticket Students passes are valid in the entire VTT network. In addition, Euregio Ticket Students passes can also be used on long-distance or high-speed trains (RailJet, RailJet Express, Intercity-Express, InterCity, EC/EuroCity) within the boundaries of Tyrol. To find out how to take a pet or bike with you on public transport within Tyrol, please visit the VTT network’s FAQ page or navigate to Service > Downloads > Fare Information
In Trentino, Euregio Ticket Students passes can be used on inner-city and extra-urban bus services run by Trentino Trasporti, on all regional trains to and from Borghetto, on trains travelling between Trento and Malè as well as Trento and Primolano (Valsugana) and on cable car services between Trento and Sardagna. Please note that they are not valid on long-distance or high-speed rail services (EC/EuroCity, Intercity, Freccia, Italo etc.) and on Bikebus services in the Valsugana valley and between Trento and Malè.

In Tyrol, Euregio Ticket Students passes are available through the Austrian operator Verkehrsverbund Tirol (VVT) and are issued in the typical VVT design.
Trentino does not issue its own versions of Euregio Ticket Students passes, which is why eligible students from Trentino can simply apply for theirs through the südtirolmobil website.
Delivery of your Euregio Ticket Students pass: If you’re based in South Tyrol, you can simply pick up your pass from a südtirolmobil ticket office of your choice. And if you’re based in Trentino, your pass will be sent by post to the address provided in your application.
- by SEPA Direct Debit,
- by credit card (Visa or MasterCard) or pagoPA while applying for your ticket online (may be subject to fees),
- at a later stage: by credit card (Visa or MasterCard) or pagoPA (may be subject to fees) through your user account or using online banking (authorised banks only; giro transfers excluded).
While your Euregio Ticket Students pass does not need to be activated separately before its first use, the annual fee must have been paid in full in order to start using it.
When you apply for your pass, we recommend setting up a personalised user account to benefit from a variety of online services:
- check the status of your pass,
- flexibly activate, deactivate and manage (paid) additional services and bundles,
- change your payment preferences,
- block your card and order a replacement,
- change your address and other data.
You can set up your online user account at any time: either directly when you apply or a later stage.
Euregio Ticket Students passes are valid for one year from the date of application. This applies to both first issues and annual renewals. Once your order is submitted, it can no longer be cancelled.
Please note that you may be required to also show valid proof of ID at the request of a member of staff.
Eligible students who already have a Südtirol Pass abo+ subscription can simply request to be issued a Euregio Ticket Students pass by paying an additional EUR 280, with the annual validity of the original Südtirol Pass abo+ ticket remaining in place.
If – once your Euregio Ticket Students pass expires – you would like to revert to a standard Südtirol Pass abo+, you will need to re-apply, as your ticket will have to be re-issued. Alternatively, if you happen to still have an old abo+ ticket, you can simply reactivate it by paying the annual fee (EUR 150).
When travelling on public transport within South Tyrol, Euregio Ticket Students passes issued in South Tyrol are subject to the same rules as Südtirol Pass abo+ tickets. This means that you need to remember to check in before every journey by bus or train.
Almost everywhere in Tyrol and Trentino, Euregio Ticket Students passes issued in South Tyrol must simply be shown upon request – with only a few exceptions: In order to validate your pass, you do need to check in on the following journeys:
- regional buses that travel beyond the boundaries of one province into another and are equipped with a südtirolmobil ticket validation machine; i.e. buses operated by South Tyrol serving the routes 140, 180, 246, 273 and 471, and
- trains travelling to South Tyrol from Trento, Lavis or Mezzocorona (I) as well as from Innsbruck, Sillian or Lienz (A). The three Austrian train stations are equipped with ticket machines where you can check in to validate your ticket from Brennero/Brenner or San Candido/Innichen, respectively.
Anything else related to travelling by bus or train on a Euregio student ticket is generally governed by the transportation rules and guidelines of the operator in charge of the territory you are travelling in: Keep in mind that the rules for taking a pet or bike with you and for using long-distance trains in Trentino and Tyrol vary accordingly.
To benefit even more widely from your Euregio Ticket Students pass, you can activate the option to pay for additional services that you may need: either with our pre-paid system that can be topped up or “re-filled” as you go, or by SEPA Direct Debit from your bank account. That way, whenever you’re travelling within the südtirolmobil network, you can conveniently use your Euregio Ticket Students pass to pay for:
- transporting bicycles (day pass),
- transporting a pet (single-fare ticket)
- travel on a Nightliner bus service (Nightliner fares apply)
How to use your pass: If you have activated the payment function of your Euregio Ticket Students pass, you can validate and use your ticket just like a standard Südtirol Pass: Check in at the beginning of your journey and remember to check out at the end when travelling on regional and Citybus services. When travelling on a regional train, please remember to enter the code of your destination into the ticket validation machine and to confirm your selection, otherwise your ticket will not be valid. A list of all train station codes can be found next to the blue ticket validation machines.
