We would like to thank everyone involved at RMV and the university administration for the fact that the upgrade can now be offered from June. However, the upgrade is only the beginning. Together with other ASten, we are campaigning for a permanent, standardised, nationwide semester ticket. You can support us in this endeavour by writing to your MP, contacting political parties (it’s currently an election campaign in Hesse) or raising the issue in election debates.

** Update **

We are pleased to inform you that the payment options PayPal and credit card have now also been implemented and are now available for the purchase of the semester ticket upgrade in addition to the SEPA function.

This should also provide a solution to the occasional problems with SEPA.

In case of problems with the registration of the SEPA payment procedure, please contact the support of the payment service provider directly:
