Semesterticket – a model of solidarity

The university considers the principe of solidarity very hightly. Independently of the personnal use they do of the Semesterticket, all students pay the same amount for it, and have the same claim of fullfilment of the prestation. This is the only way to insure that a Semsterticket can be provided to all students at a fair preis, the lower possible.

The AStA have the responsability to represent the interests of the students in front of the transport companies, in order to define the extent of the Semesterticket. Diese haben so den Vorteil einer hohen Planungssicherheit durch einen festen, großen Kundenstamm, und die Studierenden bekommen ein Nahverkehrsticket, das im Vergleich mit allen anderen Ticket-Modellen konkurrenzlos günstig ist.

It is often criticized that everybody is forced to take the Semesterticket. Therefore, this is the only model existing in order that we can be able to provide such a prestation to the students.
