eezy: the eTariff for public transport

eezy is the electronic fare that is calculated simply by your journey. It allows you to start your bus and train journey spontaneously and pay directly with your smartphone. How does it work? A check-in and check-out system calculates the fare based on the shortest distance between the start and destination stops - for all stops in NRW!

Check in. Drive off. Check out and only pay for the linear kilometres - eezy, how easy is that?

  • Knowledge about tariffs? You can forget it.

    By calculating the linear kilometers travelled, you only pay for the route you actually travel and automatically always have the right ticket with you.

  • Paper ticket? There is no such thing.

    After checking in, a ticket is created as a QR code for the journey in the VRR app.

  • Cash? You don't need it.

    When you register in the store, you enter your means of payment - eezy.nrw automatically uses this to settle the costs after the journey.

  • Pay too much? Not with eezy!

    You never pay more than 49 euros a month - after that you travel for free in NRW for the rest of the month.

The most frequently asked questions about our eezy ticket

If your device's location detection is activated and you are no longer in a public transport vehicle, the app will first ask if you would like to be checked out. A message appears again after 30 minutes. You will only be automatically checked out after 420 minutes and the journey tracked up to this point will be charged. In this case, you may need to contact the support team of your contracted transport company for a recalculation.

No, but you don't need to, as you simply check in at the start of your journey. Thanks to automatic recording and billing, you always travel with the right ticket with eezy.

The basis for calculating the fare is the distance as the crow flies between the starting point and destination of the journey, i.e. the shortest distance. The price is made up of a fixed basic price per journey plus a working price per linear kilometre or part thereof.

You will not receive a digital ticket (travel authorisation) without a check-in. In the event of a ticket inspection, a penalty, i.e. an increased transport charge (EBE) of 60 euros, will be levied.
