Further information in English
Where can I buy my tickets?
You can buy your Tickets directly within the means of travel (at the bus driver). Also Tickets are available in some of our customer office.
You can also buy a ticket by using the app "Handyticket Deutschland". Here you can order your ticket (only single and day tickets) with your mobile phone and the app for the HandyTicket. Please get more information to this at handyticket.vms.de
NOTE! Every ticket you buy in advance you have to validate before you start your first departure with this ticket. Tickets that you acquire within a bus, a tram or a train are already validated. On the ticket you also find an indication whether the ticket must be validated before the journey or not.
Which ticket do I have to choose?
For calculating your price you have to count all the fare zones you go through. If you stay in one fare zone, for example you only use the trams and buses in chemnitz, you need to acquire a ticket of the price level 1. If you want to go from Mittweida to Chemnitz you pass three fare zones and you need a ticket of the price level 3. Distances and routes that extend four zones and more require the price level for the entire area of the VMS called »Verbundraum«.
NOTE! Sometimes a route with the bus is not the same as going by train even when the departing and arrival points are identical.
