Tag-along for free: the clever co-passenger regulatio
According to the regulations for accompanied journeys valid across the entire RMV, holders of adult fare transit and reduced fare passes (weekly, monthly and annual passes, including 9 o'clock and 65-plus passes) as well as JobTickets and Firmen-Cards with co-passenger regulations are allowed, within the scope of the price level they have booked, to take along one adult and an unlimited number of children under 15 years free of charge on Mondays through Fridays from 7 p.m., and the whole day on Saturdays, Sundays, Hessian public holidays as well as on December 24th and 31st. In addition to that, according to the extended co-passenger regulation of the VMW (Verkehrsbund Mainz-Wiesbaden), holders of the transit and reduced fare passes mentioned above (excluding, however, JobTickets and FirmenCards) can also bring along all of their own or up to three other children under 15 years free of charge on Mondays through Fridays during the day (until 7 p.m.). This VMW regulation is valid in the entire fare zone 6500 (Wiesbaden, Mainz and surroundings) for all means of RMV transport, that is for bus and rail services (excluding IC and ICE trains). If the ticket holder is a child (6 to 14 years), the extended VMW co-passenger regulation does not apply.
