Local public transportation

Saarbrücken has an extensive public transport network which connects the city to the university. A single bus journey costs 2,60 €. It is usually more cost effective to buy a weekly public transport pass for 19,30 € or, for longer stays, a monthly public transport pass for 62,10 €. These passes give you unlimited access to Saarbrücken’s bus and tram network. It may be possible to get student discounts on public transport if you have a valid Student ID.
