How can I organize my trips

plan with bus & train?


Our tip

For ideal route planning on site, we recommend the VVO mobil app (Verkehrsverbund Oberelbe).

With VVO mobil, you have all information about buses and trains in one app.

Current departures in real time and disruption reports in the area of the Verkehrsverbundes Oberelbe, as well as timetable information for the whole of Saxony.

Save your preferred destinations as favorites, create your personal start page and save journeys or map sections on your notepad.




The mobile guest card is valid as a ticket for all buses marked in green on the route map, as well as commuter and regional trains, ferries (except Kurort Rathen) and on the Kirnitzschtalbahn.

Connecting tickets are required for journeys to Dresden or Bohemian Switzerland.

The mobile guest card is not valid for the hiking boat, passenger shipping on the Elbe and private bus services (National Park and Fortress Express).

The guest card gives you a reduced fare for travel on the White Fleet (e.g. steamboats) and the Bad Schandau passenger elevator.
