In Germany, public transport constitutes an important part of the infrastructure. This includes buses, trams, underground railways and train services.
A ticket is required for using public transport. Tickets for the bus and tram must be validated before or when you get on to the respective transport. Train tickets are checked and validated by conductors. If you do not have a ticket before getting on, you can normally buy one from either the bus driver, the machine on the tram or the train conductor. Bus tickets for Wolfsburg are also available at WVG information points, tourist information and various other sales points. Anyone using the bus or tram without a ticket will have to pay a fine of € 40. This sum is considerably higher for trains.
