Info on the Job Ticket

What is deemed to be a Job Ticket?

A Job Ticket is deemed to be, based on the Styrian tariff system, all

  • annual tickets
  • Graz annual tickets
  • Half-yearly tickets
  • Park+Ride annual tickets
  • Park+Ride half-yearly tickets

within the Styrian transport network. This means: The Job Ticket can incorporate the entire network area from Zone 1 to Zone 22 depending on the customer’s requirements.

Alternatively, companies also have the possibility to assume some of the costs of the Job Ticket. The remaining amount is then to be paid by the employees themselves. The deductibility as a company expense for the company as well as the tax exemption of the benefit in kind for the employees then applies for the portion paid by the company.

Important additional info:

Can Job Tickets be cancelled within the framework of the general tariff terms and conditions?

Like all travel cards (except the “Graz annual ticket”), Job Tickets can also be cancelled in the Mobility and Sales Centre before the expiry of the term of validity. In this case, there will be a proportionate reimbursement. For technical reasons, individual information by Graz Linien to the employer on this is not possible. For this eventuality, we therefore recommend that you make provision for the employee to be obligated to provide the information.
