Trams and Buses in Bremen

The Bremen transport network is efficient and reliable and a better alternative to travelling by car, given the limited parking spaces available, especially in the city centre. Most trams and buses run every 10 minutes during the day.

On board trams, tickets can be purchased using cash (coins and notes up to €10) in automatic cash ticket machines located in the first car. The ticket machines in the other cars only accept German cash cards (Geldkarte), not standard debit or credit cards. On board buses, tickets can be purchased from the driver. Fares for the city of Bremen are as follows:

  • One-way single ticket: 2.40 €
  • Day ticket, single: 6.40 €
  • Day ticket plus (for 2 adults): 8.50 €

For the night buses and trams (distinguishable by an N in the route number, e.g. N10), there is an additional charge of 1 € per person per night.

An online demonstration of the ticket machine can be found here.
