After the legendary kick-off at the Frühlingefest, we will also celebrate the start of the winter semester with you at the Wasen 2023! 🍺
Since March 2023, the new BW-Jugendticket has been available for pupils, trainees and students up to 26 years of age for €365 per year. Students aged 27 and over are not entitled to it. With regard to the abolition of the age limit, there has now been a first partial success.
From March, the new BW Youth Ticket will be available for €365. That’s great and, in our view, a small and long overdue step toward a climate- and socially just mobility turnaround.
The problem: The ticket is only valid up to and including the age of 26. In addition, the current Studiticket is expected to expire at the end of August 2023. Students aged 27 and over will therefore be without a suitable Studiticket from September. This threatens to significantly increase their costs for bus and rail, because the next “cheapest” option would then be the Deutschlandticket for €49 per month.
From our view this is – above all – a discrimination of older fellow students because of their age!
Since attempts by student representatives to remove the age limit unfortunately remained unsuccessful until the end, we are now taking matters into our own hands: Together with Stuttgart branches and political youth groups, we have formulated an open letter. In it, we call on the city of Stuttgart and the city council to create an opportunity for students over the age of 27 to use public transportation for a maximum of €1 per day. You can find the whole letter under this link. You can also find more info in our Instapost (English details in the description).
In the letter we emphasize that this can only be the beginning: In perspective, a climate and socially just mobility transition can only succeed if students, pupils, trainees, volunteers and people with low or no income can ride buses and trains for free.
We will continue to put pressure on this matter!
Your elected council members introduce themselves!
The General Assembly is the event where you can learn everything about the student body and get to know the most important contact persons.
At this event we will give you a deeper insight into the work of the VS and explain in detail what the VS is, how you can participate, which services we provide for you and which current topics we are currently dealing with. The whole event will take place as a hybrid event and will also be streamed live.
When: 8th November 2022
Time: 11.45pm – 1:15am
Where: i003 (Audimax), live stream (vs-hdm.de/vollversammlung)
We look forward to hearing from you and answering your questions!
