Berlin leads Germany’s dream for car-reducing public transport - The Next Web

Quick Summary:

According to Mayor Franziska Giffey, a monthly ticket price of €29 for zones A-C has been agreed upon, with further discussion for outer regions and the rest of Germany.   But what was the impact of a €9 ticket on the environment, and did it result in fewer car trips?

 The end of summer also sounded the end of Germany’s €9 public transport ticket — a tenth of its usual price.

Unsurprisingly popular with commuters, it left people wondering what was next.  This week the Berlin Senate has announced its plan to secure funds for reduced-price BVG tickets.
