As a pupil or apprentice in Styria, you get a standard travel card for travel on the network for scheduled services between your place of residence and your school when you submit an application for free travel.

Where does the ticket apply?

between place of residence and school (must be indicated in the application)

How long is the ticket valid for?

Pupils: The ticket fundamentally applies for the entire school year on all working days. In other words, also during Christmas, term, Easter and Whitsun holidays, but not on Sundays and public holiday and in the summer holidays. (By topping up the Top Ticket, you can make your free travel card a network card for all of Styria). The Top Ticket is valid from 1 September until 30 September of the following year on all week days and also in the summer holiday.)

Apprentices: Apprentice travel cards apply during the period of validity printed on them from Monday to Saturday – usually one apprenticeship year. When it is confirmed by the apprenticeship company that travel to the place of apprenticeship is required on Sundays and public holiday, the travel card can also be issued for these days. In the case of pupils in vocational training, the temporal validity can be restricted to individual days.

  • At the start of the school year, they may not be 24 or older
