According to TUTicket / Verkehrsverbund Tuttlingen’s conditions of carriage, all passengers are obliged to carry a valid ticket at all times when travelling by public transport.
If the passenger has forgotten his/her travel card or pass, he/she should purchase an EinzelTicket (Single Ticket) or a TagesTicket (Day Ticket).
If the passenger does not purchase a ticket and is subjected to a ticket inspection, an increased fare of € 60.00 is payable.
The increased fare will be reduced to € 7.00 if within one week of the inspection the passenger is able to provide proof that he/she was in possession of a valid non-transferable travel card/pass or authorisation at the time of the inspection. This proof should be presented to the ticket office of the transport company to which the passenger has paid or is obliged to pay the fare.
If this reduction of the increased fee is not paid despite proof of a valid non-transferable travel card/pass within this period, the company retains the right charge the increased fee.

However, many tickets can also be purchased on the bus or at ticket machines.
Please note that group journeys are not possible at all times due to reasons of capacity. If possible, please avoid travelling at times when children are travelling to and from school.
No records are kept for ZeitCards (Travel Cards), which can be purchased at ticket machines, on the bus or over the counter, and therefore cannot be replaced.
However, records are kept for AboCards (Annual Travel Passes) and KidCards (Junior Monthly Travel Cards) via the monthly direct debit method. In both cases it is possible to obtain a replacement card for € 10.00 unrepeatable. Only difference is that an ErsatzKidCard (Replacement Child Monthly Travel Card) can only be obtained with the relevant application form and a stamp from the respective school, while an ErsatzAboCard (Replacement Annual Travel Pass) can be applied for directly at our Customer Centre.
Please note that Transferable Annual Travel Passes cannot be replaced.
